The essential summer tour. Summer in Europe for most people stirs up images of lavender fields, vineyards, cafes, sunny blue skies, mediterranean beaches and, of course, cycling.
The Provence - Spain Tour combines all of these things in one cycling package including our favourite rides in the famous Vaucluse and Luberon Valleys, the ‘Giant of Provence’ - Mont Ventoux, the pro cyclist’s lifestyle of Girona and the coastal rides and beaches of Spain’s Costa Brava.
We enjoy staying in three locations on this tour, starting with five nights at the base of Mt Ventoux amongst the famous vineyards of Provence. We then transfer down to Spain, staying four nights in Girona, the 'home away from home' of many professional cyclists, including most of the New Zealand World Tour riders. The town of Girona is a truely amazing place to stay - wander the medieval cobbled streets to find the best coffee in Europe. Finally we head down to the mediterranean, staying on the Costa Brava for three nights where we ride the most stunning costal roads and then relax on the beach in the late afternoons.
