Whatever scenery you like to explore on a walking holiday, France has something to suit. Our selection not only includes routes in Provence, the Dordogne Valley, the Alps and the Pyrenees, but all over the country, from Gascony in the south-west to Alsace, a border region of fairy-tale villages fusing French and German cultures. For picturesque scenery and grand châteaux, choose to go walking in the Loire Valley; for beautiful coastal views, opt instead to go walking in Brittany; for earthy south-western cuisine and landscapes that have long inspired artists, choose the Tarn. Alternatively, if you like to explore far off the beaten track, head to the Auvergne, a region of ancient volcanoes, or to the Cévennes, whose rugged uplands and green valleys Robert Louis Stevenson explored with a donkey.
Whether you are walking in the Loire Valley, walking in Brittany, or in any other region, you can rest assured that our routes have been meticulously researched. What’s more, we transport your luggage on each and every walking holiday in France while you walk at your own pace guided by our detailed walking notes. We have holidays for all levels of walker so, to be sure of choosing the walking holiday in France that is right for you, find out how our independent walking holidays work and how they are graded.
