The Lavender Route is over 900 miles (1,500 km) of roads passing by fragrant lavender fields where 80 per cent of the world's lavender is grown. The season runs from June to October with the harvest beginning in July. Along the way are all things lavender: distilleries, shops specializing in lavender products, workshops and tours on bike or donkey back. Villages hold lavender festivals, the biggest being in Sault and Valréas.
