      From the campsite, head south. The path from here is perfect for touring and in Condrieu you can treat yourself to a pain au chocolat at the Boulangerie Au Plaisir Des Saveurs. The landscape changes, it becomes mountainous to the right and left of the Rhone and on the slopes you can admire the vineyards of the Côtes du Rhône from afar. The river separates the Departments Loire in the west and Isère in the east from each other. The nice thing about the route is that it lets you swing over suspension bridges from shore to shore. In Serrières it is worth stopping for lunch and eating something small at Le Bateau de Emile.

      After Tournon-sur-Rhône you will pass through Valence, the capital of the department of Drône. Here it is worthwhile to push a piece and to look at the historic old town. Past the Fontaine Monumentale until you reach the Esplanade du Champ de Mars, from where you have a beautiful view of the surroundings. The vineyards are replaced by steep cliffs on the riverbank. Are you coming to Montélimar? There you can enjoy a galette (buckwheat crepe) with Chez Yannik for an early dinner. The campsite Rochecondrie is now not far away.

      After the efforts of the last days, this is again a smaller tour with the beautiful destination Arles. In the morning, it's worth making a round in Avignon and watching the hustle and bustle around the Papal Palace. Out of the city, the landscape is really flat now; Past fields, vines and wineries. The route leads, not always directly along the Rhone, to Beaucaire. Here you can take a good break and get the latest information about the route again in the tourist information, as this is still partially expanded. From here it is not far to Arles. Just outside the town, the river divides into Le Petit Rhône and Le Grande Rhône. The route follows the route of Le Grande Rhône towards Port-St-Louis-du-Rhône.

      After six long days, the last stage is more like a short drive. Especially in summer it is worth spending a few hours on the beach. A bit out of town, there is enough open space in the sand even in midsummer. The tour then leads directly along the Mediterranean coast to Montpellier. The view over the shallow coast is beautiful. After approx. 10 km you head north to the historic old town and Neustadt of Montpellier.

      The route today takes you right through the Camargue nature reserve, past rice and salt fields and flamingos. The destination is the Mediterranean. In the morning you can take a nice walk through the very arty center of Arles, where Vincent van Gogh lived. The route now leads back to the stretch of ViaRhôna along the Canal du Rhône à Sête. In the true, if very picturesque, tourist center of Aigues-Mortes, you can admire the perfectly intact city walls and then head west to La Grande Motte. This is an absolute contrast, as the city was built in the 60s from the ground to catch tourist crowds.

      This is a long stage at which the former Pope seat of Avignon awaits you. First you head south and leave Viviers behind. The route takes you past the spectacular cliffs of the Defilé de Donzères and the Pont de Robinet. This place is considered a true gateway to Provence. From here, the cliffs drop off and the landscape flattenes. In Pont-Saint-Esprit you can have a lunch break and enjoy the view of the medieval bridge of the same name. Unfortunately, the via is not really well developed and it is necessary to look into the map more often. Through Caderousse with its 10m high tidal wave barrier you reach Avignon. Right in the city, on a small island in the Rhône is the campsite.

      Lyon is easy to reach from Paris or Basel and is perfect for starting the tour towards the Mediterranean. Before you go, you can take another spin around the old town, visit the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière and ask the tourist information office on Place Bellecour for details on the ViaRhôna sections. You can start directly from there on the route and get out of town comfortably. Through small suburban settlements with industrial charm á la Ruhrgebiet but you quickly get into the green. The Via leads directly along the river and is well signposted. After 50 km you will pass the small campsite L'ile des Pêcheurs; it's perfect for the first night.
