Project Description

Trans Provence – A Trip Across The French Maritime Alps

All-encompassing, blissful and divine

6 Stages – 7800hm up – more than 17000hm down

For a couple of years now the ‘Trans Provence’ has become a household word within the bike community regarding our programme. We tested the route for the first time in 2012. The excitement and enthusiasm are still growing. 6 breath-taking and unique days on the bike will cover more than 250 km of some of the best single trails in the Provence area and the French Maritime Alps. Thanks to well established infrastructure we can master 8,500 hm up and around 15,000 hm down. And if this weren’t enough, we will barely encounter any other human beings during these days.

It’s not that easy to put into words what this trip has to offer. The trails are superb, the landscape is magnificent providing wonderful panoramic view of the French Maritime Alps. No pressure and no stress imposed, we are there to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. Each day new impressions. Altogether, every ambitious, outdoorsy, and nature loving rider should bike along these paths at least once in their lifetime.
