Pilgrims Trail by Bike
The Via Tolosana, now more commonly known as the Way of Arles, was one of the four traditional pilgrim routes which could be travelled in two directions. Pilgrims from Spain and Portugal used it to travel to Rome, and pilgrims from Italy, Provence and Germany used it to travel to the tomb of St James in Santiago de Compostela. This self guided cycle between Provence and Languedoc lets you experience a less trodden pilgrimage route and absorb the incredible landscapes typical of southern France. Between Arles and Montpellier the route crosses the Camargue, the first wetland of France before continuing past olive groves and vineyards of Languedoc to the beautiful village of St Guilhem le Desert and finally Lodève. En route experience the fabulous hospitality of your hosts in a selection of hand picked hotels and enjoy the culinary treats for which the region is so famous.
