General info

The Trans Provence is an absolute highlight among all the mountain bike trips and has become a household name in the bike scene. In six days, more than 250 bike kilometers lead to the best single trails of Provence and the French Maritime Alps. The bike days are breathtaking and shine with incredible views of the mountains of the Maritime Alps. Without racing hectic but with sensible ascent support we enjoy with about 8500 Aufwörts altitude meters great 15,000 downhill altitude meters. An absolute insider tip because on the trails you often meet for days no like-minded people or other recreation seekers.

Every day new impressions push themselves into the consciousness: It alternates gray, red and brown earth. Sometimes with a lot of grip, sometimes with less, sometimes a very ordinary single trail. Constantly the landscape changes, every day we notice the differences in the excellent cuisine. Sometimes the rustic flair prevails, sometimes we dive into the Mediterranean feeling of sun, beach and sea.

The Trans Provence is accompanied by two guides, one of whom drives the support vehicle every day and serves up a speciality picnic at selected locations at lunchtime. The advantage is that you only need a small daypack and can always repack at lunchtime.

It is not only the tours that offer variety and diversity: the accommodations are also each a highlight in their own right.

Accommodation

The nights we spend every day in a different, beautiful accommodation. Variety pure, because from mountain hut in the in the Maritime Alps to the city hotel we have everything. At all accommodations the bikes can be parked in a locked room.

Catering

We also praise variety in our meals: breakfast is included in the accommodation. Dinner is either in the accommodation itself or we swarm out and eat in great restaurants in the villages. During a short walk to digest, we get to know the enchanting regions even better.

At noon our guides will provide you with a snack from the region.
