The Alpilles natural park

A low-altitude mountain range - the highest point is less than 500 m above sea level - the eponymous regional natural park is located in the northwest of the Bouches-du-Rhône department. It extends over about fifteen municipalities, between the Rhone Valley and the Durance Valley, and over about thirty kilometers. Small peaks, hills and plateaus offer those who survey them exceptional panoramas of the region. Lovers of hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking are in a little paradise.

The center offers itinerant hikes in the Alpilles massif, from one day to a short week. Amateur or confirmed rider, find yourself during a ride in the heart of the Alpilles.

Hiking in the Alpilles

Cycling around the Alpilles
