3 reasons to take a hike in France

A COUNTRY AS VERSATILE AS IT IS IMPRESSIVE

A land as diverse as its inhabitants, as tasteful as the delicious wine and as passionate as the vibrant capital. And incomparably unique: this is France. Especially hiking through the French provinces, valleys or the high mountains to the endless coastlines makes hearts beat faster. Marvel at the vineyards, rocky shores, sandy beaches and the culinary diversity of the country. You will not find more varied routes than here.

Hiking view to village Reynac

Reason no. 1: Try foie gras in the Dordogne valley

To taste a typical French delicacy is as much a part of your holiday as a souvenir for loved ones at home. The valley of the Dordogne impresses with quiet valleys and sleepy villages. The crescent-shaped area around Sarlat is famous for a French speciality: the foie gras. The delicacy was created around 2500BC in ancient Egypt. In France today, the preparation technique has been perfected. Therefore, it is not surprising that hikers on routes through the dark oak and pine forests come face to face with herds of chattering.

In addition, the valley and the Périgord are known for their rich historical heritage, mild climate and delicious cuisine. So go ahead and fill your stomach with French delicacies!

Walking along lavender fields to the monastery Sénanque

Reason no 2: A hiking tour through Provence

Picture charming villages and blooming lavender fields as far as the eye can see. Provence is the most picturesque starting point for a hike, for example the Luberon National Park.

Nowhere else but in the Luberon National Park is Provence so diverse and colourful. Extensive poppy fields and fragrant lavender meadows invite you to have a delightful picnic. Take a hike through the picturesque Gordes, or visit the Cistercian Abbey of Abbaye Sénaque.

Coastal walking at the Côte d'Azur

Reason no 3: Off to the Côte d Azur

Hikers who love the sea and perhaps want to take a look at the rich and famous are in good hands on the Côte d’Azur. The south of France shows its quiet side here. Hiking tours in the countryside far away from Nice and Monaco promise unique insights into a beautiful landscape. The shining coast of southern France offers both mountains and sea and the Mercantour, a high summit. In addition, hikers will find a wonderful contrast of fauna and flora. Mimosas and yew trees as well as orange and lemon trees can be found on the coastline in abundance.

Look forward to steep gorges and hidden villages in the beathtaking Côte d’Azur!
