    What to Expect
    This tour offers a fabulous discovery of the most beautiful National Park creeks from the village of Cassis. Starting at 8:30am, you will be riding an electric mountain bike on large tracks, accompanied by a careful guide. You will be among nature and see beautiful views along the route.

    After trying the bikes, and verifying that you will be able to pedal on this course, it will be the time to enter in the National Park. The beginning of the tour will make you cycle on the "Gineste" road for about twenty minutes. After that, you will climb the "Gardiole" pass.  This is the start of a nice descent to the "En Vau" creek. It's perhaps the most impressive one with its large cliffs. The electric bikes will enable you to move faster than hikers, so you will arrive on the beach of the creek with very few other people.

    You will get a break and be able to enjoy swimming if you wish. Then you'll climb up the ridges to discover the magnificent Cassis Bay, and take the direction of the other two creeks. With a permanent view on the "Canaille" Cape, one of the highest Maritime cliffs in Europe, you will ride through the creeks of "Port Pin" and then "Port Miou", which was a stone quarry in the past and is now a pleasant port. Then you will return to the starting point and visit the village of Cassis, seeing nice beaches on the way. This tour is designed for people who know how to ride a mountain bike. The effort is not difficult and uphill climbing will be easy thanks to the electric assistance. Your guide will be attentive to your abilities. However, you should not be afraid of biking in gravel tracks.

    After 3 hours we will arrive back at our starting point, where you will be able to enjoy the rest of your day.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The Calanques are very beautiful and this is a great way to see them. The e-bikes were of very good quality and Emilien did a great job leading the tour. It is fairly challenging as the roads are rocky and steep in parts - not for inexperienced

    Response from Emilien V, Gérant at Cassis: Three Calanques Tour by Electric Mountain Bike
    Responded Oct 6, 2018
    Dear Chris, Thank you for your review and your visit! Your details are important, that's why I'm going to answer it. 1. For the 3 hours tour, we take wide rocky paths, it is better to have already done mountain biking. But we do not want to do a workout, it's a discovery tour which is proposed. Our guides are trained to teach you things and take the time to make stops with explanations. 2. Actually we do not offer a bag on the bike, since as previously explained, we run paths that are not suitable for carrying bags. We ask our customers to bring a backpack, if they do not have it we lend it for free. 3. It is defined on all vouchers that water must be brought. 4. We are very sorry for this situation, we had that day a replacement person, indeed on the low season on weekdays it is sometimes difficult to have a good English speaking graduate monitor, but we are doing everything to make it not happen. 5. You are true! Swimming is great! But we can not write on our advertising media to take a swimsuit, because we are a bikes business. Finally,that's not common to fall during our tours. If this person has fallen several times, it may be that our monitor that has not been attentive enough, and we must not accept this Your opinion urges us to check his action. Safety is a priority for us, as other customer reviews attest. I hope to have answered your comments and to see you soon! Best regards,
