Change of Scenery: Hike from the Alps to the Sea

EVERY YEAR YOU HAVE THE SAME DISCUSSION AT HOME: WHERE SHALL WE GO FOR A HOLIDAY, THE MOUNTAINS OR THE SEA? EUROHIKE HAS THE SOLUTION FOR YOU! FIND OUT MORE ABOUT IT BELOW!

About high summits and sandy coastlines

Straight across the Alps, rocky steep faces all around, high mountain tops and fresh, clean mountain air. Step by step you wander over hill and dale, with temperatures getting milder day by day, the air becomes more salty and the climate Mediterranean. The further your feet carry you, the closer you get to the light and warm south. Does this sound fantastic? It sure is! Thanks to the multifarious Eurohike hiking holidays, hiking enthusiasts look forward to a change of scenery. From the Alps to the sea. A continuous companion: varied scenery and changing culinary peculiarities.

The summer is at the ready and the annual discussion about a holiday destination is sparked anew. There are two camps around the kitchen table: mountains versus sea. It would be best if you were able to combine both in one holiday. Actually, why not? Below read more about the three hiking tours which have both at the ready: Alps and sea!

Pink cliffs and the Gulf of Porto

The sun is shining happily from the sky creating a glistening sparkle over the sea. The cliffs are dipped into a soft pink and behind them tower the majestic summits. Sounds amazing? It is! During a coastal hiking tour in Corsica you can look forward to fascinating views onto the coastal scenery on the Gulf of Porto. The route leads you through peaceful pine forests, past rock massifs to rugged gorges. From time to time you take a break in a café on the coast and enjoy a still warm pain au chocolat. Alas, what more could a heart desire on a holiday!
