Beyond cycling, ViaRhôna is a great opportunity to discover and enjoy at your own pace the many treasures of the territories crossed. Gastronomy, oenology, culture, heritage, nature will be the main travelling companions of curious tourists.
ViaRhôna is crossing 3 regions (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, South Region and Occitania), 12 counties and 10 protected reserves or natural areas... It allows those who use it to appreciate 3 UNESCO classified sites (Lyon, Avignon and Arles), and for epicureans, it should be noted that nearly 40 Michelin starred restaurants are located near its route.
The route is relatively flat (no more than 3% difference in altitude, with the notable exception of the first 60 kilometres between Geneva and Seyssel). It is therefore accessible to all.
ViaRhôna is 87% developed and is expected to be completed in 2020.
The ViaRhôna and EuroVelo 17 logos are shown on the signage.
