Once past Salavas, enjoy unrivalled views over the Ardèche Valley on this final stage of the Grande Traversée de l'Ardèche VTT. Apart from the odd vine, the vast, wild limestone plateau here is only suitable for scrub. Its true riches lie hidden underground. Here, you’re in the Pays des Avens, an area where vast caverns lurk just under the surface! Crossing Ronze Wood, with all its holm oaks, you reach La Grande Lauze, an immense limestone slab.
Next, you can ride easily along to the village of Aiguèze via the GR4 trail. Finally, you reach the Rhône Valley and the Ardèche border, riding through vineyards and orchards to get to riverside Bourg-Saint-Andéol, a town boasting an extraordinary architectural legacy.
