BIKe itinerary

Welcome to Languedoc

We welcome you at Nîmes TGV at 2 pm and drive you at your hotel in Uzès. After a bike fitting and a tour orientation, we explore the charming old town and its rich heritage.

 

Uzès to Nîmes (VIA the Pont du Gard)

A superb cycle route links the few kilometres separating Uzès from the Pont du Gard. The aqueduct, a legacy of the Roman Empire, is in a remarkable state of conservation. We then reach Nîmes to continue our journey through the centuries. This carefour city between Provence and Languedoc has many treasures: Roman arenas, Maison Carrée, Jardins de la Fontaine, Tour Magne, Museum of Romanity…

Sommières to Lauret (VIA SAUVE)

The day starts in Sommières, a small fortified town with a lively historic centre. Crossed by a river and surrounded by stones, the place is charming. We then cross the Gard hinterland, its garrigue and medieval villages (Lecques, Corconne, Sauve) before reaching the Hortus plateau for our first pedal strokes in the Hérault.

Lauret to Navacelles (via Vis gorges)

The crossing of the Plateau de l’Hortus quickly leads us to the bridge and the chapel of Issensac which overlooks the Hérault river after a splendid road with bends. Our road continues towards the Gorges de la Vis, announced by a beautiful waterfall. We go up this valley, a real natural setting, until we reach the vertiginous Cirque de Navacelles. We go down the spectacular road that crosses this giant crater to the enchanting village of Navacelles.

Mourèze to Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert (via Salagou lake) 

The village of Mourèze, established in the 9th century, is dominated by a circus which forms a fascinating dolomitic site, made up of columns of phantasmagorical rocks facing the sky. From here, we drive to the spectacular Salagou lake with its red-tinted landscapes. This lunar and arid area then leads us to Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, wonderful villages nestled along the Gorges de l’Hérault. Charming alleys lead in its centre to its marvel: the abbey of Gélonne.

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert to Montpellier (via Pic Saint Loup) 

Our way up the Gorges de l’Hérault takes us first to the pleasant town of Saint-Martin-de-Londres. From here we admire the Pic Saint Loup (658 m) which dominates the hinterland of Montpellier and splits the vineyards of this well-known wine region. Our adventure ends in beauty as it is in Montpellier that we spend our last evening. Montpellier is a joyful city, which, through its medieval streets and charming squares, mixes art de vivre and history in a unique way.

TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

It is unfortunately already time to say goodbye. We will take you to Montpellier TGV Station after breakfast to end this Languedoc bike tour, unless you want to extend your stay with Veymont Travel.
