Our featured walking holidays in France
Explore the fjords of Calanques where gleaming white limestone cliffs form a stark contrast with the deep blue sky and the turquoise Mediterranean Sea. Finish in style in Aix en Provence and climb the Sainte Victoire mountain, immortalized in the paintings of Cézanne.
Experience the D-Day landing beaches and retrace the steps of those who gave their lives for the liberation of Europe, taking in Sword Beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach, Omaha Beach and Utah Beach. This is a hike of remembrance, but also of pleasure, as you walk along beautiful cliff-side and beach trails.
Explore Brittany’s Côte de Granite Rose from Perros Guirec to Lannion. With its bizarre rock formations, pink tainted rocks, white beaches and clear blue waters, it is considered one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe.
The Verdon Gorge is one of Europe’s deepest and most beautiful. Our demanding but rewarding itinerary takes in some truly dramatic scenery, the most spectacular parts being the famous GR4 route and the Blanc-Martel Trail. The programme will also let you immerse in the atmosphere of the authentic Provence.
Explore the most beautiful parts of the Provence, taking in both the Alpilles and the Luberon mountain ranges. Staring in Avignon, your journey will take you through the famed villages of Fontaine de Vaucluse, Gordes, Goult, Bonnieux and Saignon. You will finish in the beautiful Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, with its Venice-like canals.
This trip will take you through the Roya valley from the mountains to the sea, weaving from one balcony path to the next, amongst pine forests and olive groves. Your route will take you away from the crowds on forgotten paths leading to some of the most beautiful perched villages on the Côte d’Azur.
The Aravis massif is a hidden gem, rising between the Rhône Valley to the West and the Mont Blanc range to the East.
