French walking holidays

Inntravel’s walking holidays in France are about seeing a region ‘up close’, not necessarily bagging peaks. That’s what we mean by a Slow holiday, so take time as you walk to admire the views or visit a château. There’s no luggage to encumber you, and, with no group, it’s you who sets the pace and chooses when to pause. You can trust us to select charming accommodation and to provide accurate route notes to direct you there, so relax and enjoy…

How our walking holidays in France are graded

When it comes to walking, France offers something for everyone, from gentle walking on the Côte d’Azur or past the Loire’s châteaux, to challenging hikes around Mont Blanc, in the Pyrenees or amid the hills of Alsace. To be sure of choosing the walking holiday in France that is right for you, read how we grade them below.
  • Generally easy walking with few ascents / descents, but perhaps the occasional long day.
  • Easy-to-moderate walking with some ascents / descents, and occasional longer days.
  • Moderate walking on varied terrain, with some long days and regular ascents / descents.
  • Moderate-to-challenging walking on more rugged terrain with significant ascents / descents on most days. Compass skills may be required (check the individual holiday).
  • Challenging hikes, featuring long days with significant ascent / descent on challenging terrain. Compass skills may be required.
  • Choice of easier or harder routes, so that you can tailor most days to your requirements.
