Cassis: Three Calanques Tour by Electric Mountain Bike

    What to Expect
    This tour offers a fabulous discovery of the most beautiful National Park creeks from the village of Cassis. Starting at 8:30am, you will be riding an electric mountain bike on large tracks, accompanied by a careful guide. You will be among nature and see beautiful views along the route.

    After trying the bikes, and verifying that you will be able to pedal on this course, it will be the time to enter in the National Park. The beginning of the tour will make you cycle on the "Gineste" road for about twenty minutes. After that, you will climb the "Gardiole" pass.  This is the start of a nice descent to the "En Vau" creek. It's perhaps the most impressive one with its large cliffs. The electric bikes will enable you to move faster than hikers, so you will arrive on the beach of the creek with very few other people.

    You will get a break and be able to enjoy swimming if you wish. Then you'll climb up the ridges to discover the magnificent Cassis Bay, and take the direction of the other two creeks. With a permanent view on the "Canaille" Cape, one of the highest Maritime cliffs in Europe, you will ride through the creeks of "Port Pin" and then "Port Miou", which was a stone quarry in the past and is now a pleasant port. Then you will return to the starting point and visit the village of Cassis, seeing nice beaches on the way. This tour is designed for people who know how to ride a mountain bike. The effort is not difficult and uphill climbing will be easy thanks to the electric assistance. Your guide will be attentive to your abilities. However, you should not be afraid of biking in gravel tracks.

    After 3 hours we will arrive back at our starting point, where you will be able to enjoy the rest of your day.

    This is a must do when you visit Cassis. It is a beautiful tour with a lot of amazing view points guided by a very friendly guide. He also gives much information about the area. You don't have to be an experienced mountainbiker.
