29,44 km cycling loop from Le Sambuc

Between the ponds and the Grand Rhône, this intimate cycle tour takes cyclists to the heart of a domesticated Camargue. Canals, crops, architecture, livestock... all the ways in which mankind has exploited this unique area are at your fingertips. Starting at Le Sambuc, a typical hamlet with low houses, the route reveals the wealth of hydraulic structures. On either side of the small roads, you can see the rice fields and pastures where the traditional Camargue horses and bulls graze.
