Sports in Provence
Information on cycling, skiing, hiking the alpes, ballooning to windsurfing.
There is a whole world of sports unique to the Provence, Beyond country: Hiking, climbing mountains, descending into caves, leaping into space, fastened to a pair of wings or parachute or glider, floating down a river, in a canoe or kayak or raft, canyoning down without a boat. Not all the action is down on the coast.
The remote towns and villages, lacking the big-city entertainments, have frequent sporting events. Many of these are things better suited to the rural environment, such as mountain biking (VTT - vélo tout-terrain) and horseback riding.
