Festive ViaRhôna from Lyon to Avignon

Holidays (5-8 days)

A cycling route of festivals

The ViaRhôna® is a cycle route from Lake Geneva all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. This section from Lyon to Avignon is broken down into a 7-day trip that you can adapt to your pace. From the capital of the Gauls to the City of Popes, these vibrant cities host plenty of festivals all year long! You'll discover Lyon, Vienne, Andancette, Valence, Montélimar, Pont-Saint-Esprit, and Orange: your stopover cities along the way. Your route heads south through terraced vineyards, hilltop villages, orchards, and lavender fields imbued with the aromas of Provence. Embark on a fantastic cycling holiday!
A note from MyTripTailor: This itinerary is also great to explore outside of the festival season. If you would like to attend a particular festival on the route, be sure to check the dates and ticket availability in advance.
