Occitanie – South of France Bike Tours

France's best cycling is in Occitanie

Discover hidden corners of Southern France

With a variety of landscapes bathed by the Mediterranean sun and connected with a vast network of small country roads that extend from the sea to the mountains, this region, known by many names, is ideally discovered by bicycle. In fact, ExperiencePlus! tour leaders favor the bicycling in this part of France more than any other.

Experience all of the character of southern France by pedaling through picturesque small villages enlivened by town squares filled with farmer’s markets, locals gossiping over their pastis drinks, and heated games of boules played with heavy steels balls. The region’s Mediterranean coast, lined with beaches and lagoons, gives way to shrub lands of oak, lavender, rosemary and thyme which itself is bordered by dense forests and mountain peaks.

History beckons at every corner. The center of Nimes features an almost 2000-year-old Roman arena once used for chariot races and gladiator combats. The medieval city of Carcassonne is fortified with a double ring of ramparts and 53 towers.

Meanwhile, the region’s culinary scene centers on local ingredients and flavors featuring hearty dishes like cassoulet, a rich meat and bean stew, and seafood specialties along the coast. The region’s wines, including those from Languedoc and Roussillon are some of the best known wines exported from France.

Occitanie refers to the people and language spoken across southern France, especially as you travel south into Spain’s Catalonia region.
