The Cevennes : from Mont Aigoual to the sea

Total distance : 420 miles | Average daily distance : 105 miles

Start city : Nîmes | Ending city : Montpellier

Languedoc is a region of contrasts. It is a long strip of land stuck between the mountains and the sea. On the one hand, sandy beaches and family resorts, and on the other, mountain ranges : Montagne Noire and the Cévennes. Our itinerary will take you to the ancient Roman Pont du Gard, the Arènes of Nîmes and the historic center of Montpellier, but we'll also take you to the more hidden treasures in land. You'll visit the cave Des Demoiselles and the spectacular Cirque de Navacelles, then, it's up to Mont Aigoual and Camargue, with a stop at the Arènes d'Arles and the extraordinary town of Aigues-Mortes. This is a package with several trips built into one.
