Footpaths or roads? Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme has selected a range of stunning tours for walkers, cyclist, mountain bikers, drivers and motorcyclists…
The Bouches-du-Rhône really is a place apart!
It is one of France's most urban and populated areas, yet also home to exceptional natural sites such as the 'Calanques' fjords, Camargue and inland Provence… Our 'Belles Routes' itineraries reveal all!
Each itinerary is a great opportunity to explore the Bouches-du-Rhône's stunning towns, villages, cultural sites and landscapes. We love getting off the beaten track and showing visitors the authentic and contemporary aspects of the area you'll never find in a traditional guide.
Enjoy the trip!
Bouches-du-Rhône : Green Provence
The Bouches-du-Rhône is a genuine paradise for outdoor activities. Riders, walkers and cyclists will love our bridle paths, footpaths and trails bathed in sunshine. And our climate means you can get out all year long! What's more, over half of the area is a 'green zone', dotted with nature reserves, national parks, forests and around 30 protected public domains maintained by the Area Council.
Sunlight and exotic climes
Fancy getting away from it all? The winding roads of the Bouches-du-Rhône lead to many marvels, such as the Côte Bleue marine park, regional nature reserves of Camargue and Les Alpilles, the 'Calanques' national park, protected public domains, Sainte Victoire mountain as portrayed by Cézanne, Pagnol's Garlaban, secret grottos in the hills, and the parks and gardens of our 'Département Fleuri' (region in bloom) – the Bouches-du-Rhône is the only area in south-eastern France boasting this label !
