Mountain Bike Tour in Monts d'Ardèche and Mézenc

Mountain biking between ancient volcanoes and the Loire River sources.

5 days / 5 nights or 4 days / 4 nights

Mountain biking between Monts d'Ardeche and Haut Loire

This trail crosses a part of the Ardeche mountains, passes by the sources of the Loire River and takes you through the Mezenc mountains.
Located in the Massif Central, we like these high lands (1.753m for Mount Mezenc) for a MTB practice during few days. The itinerary is really demanding and is perfect for those who want to feel the difficulty.
