ViaRhôna by Bike
Creating a link between the Swiss Alps and the Mediterranean, ViaRhôna enables cyclists to discover the Rhône Valley’s riches: its natural wonders, exceptional heritage, remarkable sights and reputed gastronomy. The full route will be completed in the coming years.
Numerous ViaRhôna cycling stages are already open for family cycling outings:
- ViaRhôna offers many cycling stages accessible to all, including families. So gear up for some great cycling outings!
- Look up the list of stages specially adapted to family outings and other easy sections of ViaRhôna under the section ‘ideas for easy cycling outings’
- We only recommend that experienced cyclists take on the whole provisional route, covering 815km from Saint-Gingolph on the south shore of Lake Geneva to Port-Saint-Louis-du Rhône or Sète, given that certain stages have yet to be completed.
The ViaRhôna cycle route is still at planning stage along certain stretches, notably south from the town of Pont-Saint-Esprit.
This means that for the time being we are not able to provide the details of the complete route. The relevant towns and parishes involved in the development of the stages that are yet to be set up are working closely together to ensure the continuity of the route within as short a timescale as possible.
In the meantime, make sure that you have a suitable GPS device and detailed IGN map to clarify your cycling route through the parts where ViaRhôna remains to be set up.
Thank you for your understanding.
- The whole route, once complete, will be 815km in length.
