Follow your sense of smell through the almost endless lavender fields of Provence. Inspired by the singing of the cicadas, explore this idyllic plateau in the Alpes de Haute Provence, which is also part of the Verdon regional nature park. Catch sight of the famous cliffs of the Verdon gorge and enjoy the panorama of the imposing peaks of the Maritime Alps on the horizon. Ride along the Verdon to the picturesque lakes of Sainte-Croix and Esparron. Especially the latter, with its unspoilt nature, is ideal for a rest and refreshment. Throughout the route, you can visit distilleries, farms or museums to learn more about the legendary plant that is the soul of Haute-Provence. The price of this tour includes 2 or 3 nights in guesthouses and  2* hotels in double rooms with en-suite facilities, 2 or 3 breakfasts, daily baggage transfers, a carefully designed itinerary, navigation app for smartphones, a detailed road book including maps (digital format) and GPS tracks.
