The Navacelles Cirque

A truly impressive canyon (300 m deep), the largest in Europe, carved by the river Vis. Classified as a Human World Heritage site by UNESCO.

A journey

This circuit is rather a journey than a bike tour, leading you through beautiful valleys, gorges, and medieval villages. The highest point of the tour will offer you a spectacular bird view of the entire region between the Mt Ventoux, the Mediterranean sea, the Pyrenees and the Cévennes mountains.
