The 27-year-old, who announced that he was leaving Team Sky last month, believes that the 2013 edition of the prestigious race will be a "beautiful route".
"The 100th edition of the Tour de France has to incorporate everything which means lots of mountains but it's a beautiful route," Cavendish told BBC Radio Five Live.
"There is a sprint on the first stage which gives me a chance of winning the yellow jersey. The final sprint on the Champs Elysees will be under lights.
"I've won [the last stage] in Paris the last four years and I want to make that five. My team Omega Pharma Quick-Step are going all out [to win the green sprinters jersey] in 2013."
Meanwhile, Bradley Wiggins, who became the first Brit to win the yellow jersey this year, is expected to take a step back and let Chris Froome lead Team Sky next year.
