Mountain Biking Languedoc

By mountain bike, you ride through garrigues up to the higher Languedoc. A wide range of wild sceneries is your daily present. The trail is carefully signed therefore you may choose to be on your own or guided by a graduated mountain bike guide. We propose two routes: one is ending in the Espinousse Mounts and the other one in the wine region Minervois.

Each stage gives you the opportunity to discover local traditions, the natural sites and the richness of the Languedocian ground. We book your accommodation on a full board basis : breakfast, packed lunch and local traditional dinners in gites for groups or in B&B.
