Provence outdoor activities

Jump to last reply

We are spending 3 nights just north of Avignon, 3 nights in Saint-Saturnin-Les-Apt and 3 nights near Saint-Tropez. We don't want to spend a ton of time in the car getting from place to place (kids don't seem to enjoy that) so we opted for multiple locations. Booked for 23 June to 2 July this year with rental car.

We are looking to do a lot of outdoor type activities (three boys...) with a few typical sites for the grown ups. My tentative plans include:
Pont du Gard
bike riding in/around Camargue (with a stop in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer)
guided fishing trip (our little guy has been begging to go fishing)
Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque, lavender fields, perched villages
rafting on Gorge du Verdon
a couple of days on the beach near Saint-Tropez.

I have Stu's itinerary (thanks Stu!) and have read through that. Does anyone have tips regarding renting bikes in the Camargue? Where to routes to ride? I thought the salt flats would be great...

Has anyone used a fishing guide in the area? This one is a big maybe - seems kinda expensive to take a guided fishing trip when it won't even stock my freezer with some fish! The little guy (almost 8) has been begging to go fishing, thought it might be fun...

Rafting on the Gorge du Verdon? Any experiences with a particular outfit?

I would like at least one good market experience. Food & housewares are favored... Pottery from Apt is a must for me!

Input? Tips? Thanks everyone!!
