Discover the Var coastline, hurtle down the Verdon cattle tracks on your mountain bike, take your family cycling to Draguignan and on the island of Porquerolles during the off season, or organise a wine route on electric bikes. The Var is also home to the Roc d'Azur!
Whether you love cycling with your family, are an experienced thrill-seeker, or even a mountain-bike enthusiast on rough ground, the Var has a thousand and one different landscapes to enchant you!
The Var offers incredible cycling opportunities, such as the medium mountainous area of the Haut Var Verdon and Pays de Fayence, the Maures, Sainte-Baume or Estérel Massifs, the fields and valleys of Provence Verte or delightful routes beside the azure blue sea!
Thrill-seekers and explorers can explore the Var by mountain bike, or go for something unconventional, along little back roads or departmental roads.
This is the French leg that connects Spain to Italy! The “Les Portes du Verdon à vélo” trail goes through Var for a distance of 200 km between Manosque and Cannes. Explore Rians and the Haute-Provence countryside around it, the fountains of Barjols, the ceramic atists of Salernes, the “La VIgne à Vélo” trail from Draguignan through the vineyards to the mediaeval village of Arcs-sur-Argens and the picturesque village of Bargemon and its little museums, and the trail leads just under the hillside villages of Seillans, Montauroux and Caillan, which are well worth a little climb to visit. Nearby, just before you enter Alpes-Maritimes, the Saint-Cassien Lake is the perfect place for a refreshing dip.
Discovering the Var coastline by bike, whether on a family outing or something more unusual, there are many good reasons to ride along the coastal cycle path!
The path runs through 20 villages between Six-Fours-Les-Plages and Saint-Raphaël, following the traces of the former Provençal railway.
Take the coast cycle route, and explore a varied countryside, with diverse flora and an exceptional coastline.
At the moment, 92km of trails have been created, of which around 60km are separate lanes, i.e. for the exclusive use of non-motorised vehicles. Certain parts of the route have not been finished, so users will need to go along main roads. Check the state of the path beforehand by consulting with the appropriate Tourist Office.
The Var knows how to seduce mountain bike enthusiasts with its outstanding wilderness, suitable for all abilities.
Between the sea and the mountains, from fishing villages to hilltop village, come and explore our marked trails.
