Experience some of the most famous climbs in southwestern France for yourself on an extraordinary 6-day journey from Mont Ventoux to Alpe d’Huez. Cycle up the “Giant of Provence” — maybe even twice! — and follow our tried-and-tested itinerary through the majestic Alps.
Along our route, you’ll encounter mind-boggling vistas, gorgeous gorges, and the charming towns of Sault, Orpierre, Guillestre, and Briançon, among others. Make no mistake, though — this tour is not for the faint of heart! You’ll focus on the physical challenges such as cycling over famed mountain passes like the Col d’Izoard and climbing the 21 hairpin bends to Alpe d’Huez. The amazing views are an added bonus.
As we offer a wide selection of bicycle tours in Provence, keep in mind that other (easier) trips cover this area as well, such as our Level 3/4 Upper Provence, Ventoux and Luberon.
