Leave the city of Marseille to enjoy an exciting electric mountain biking adventure through the small roads and off-road tracks of Calanques National Park. Encounter beautiful landscapes as you cycle along the Calanques which are narrow, steep-walled inlets nestled between limestone mountains and the Mediterranean sea. This tour is designed for sporty people who can manage a bike off-road, but with electric assistance, no need to be a champion mountain biker to reach the top of the hills.
Meet your guide near Pointe Rouge beach to begin your 3-hour morning or afternoon e-bike tour. Get outfitted with a helmet and an electric mountain bike. After getting familiar with the different settings of your e-bike, set off towards Calanques National Park,through Parc Pastré, a large natural area with trees and horses just below the cliffs.
Follow your experienced guide who will narrate your journey as you go down the tracks from the Montagne de l’Aigle to the Parc de la Fontaine d’Ivoire. Explore the beautiful scenery by alternately climbing and cruising down hills. From Cortiou's pass, enjoy a breathtaking view of the famous Calanque de Sormiou 325 feet (100 m) below. Begin your journey back by ascending a steep road (thanks to electric assistance).
Ride along the Escampons Crest (Crête des Escampons), which is nestled between the city of Marseille and the Calanques. Finally, cycle through the Roy d’Espagne to return to the starting point in Marseille's Pointe Rouge harbor. Although e-bikes offer electric pedaling assistance, this activity is recommended for athletic participants due to the steep hills. This 3-hour tour is led by an experienced guide in a small-group of no more than 10 people to ensure a personalized experience.
