French walking holidays

An Inntravel walking holiday in France gives you the chance to see an area up close. Ours are Slow holidays, and so we diligently plan our routes (and describe them in easy-to-follow notes) so that you don’t have to rush. And since there’s no group, no arrangements to make (we do all that), and no luggage, you can pause whenever you like, be it to watch the butterflies, cool off in a stream, or look at the flowers, all of which makes for an enjoyable French walking holiday.

How our French walking holidays are graded

We are experts in French walking holidays, and have something for all levels of walker. To be sure of choosing the French walking holiday that is right for you, read how we grade them below. You are also free to build in rest days by adding an extra night at any hotel.
  • 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.

What to expect from your French walking holiday

We want your walking holiday to be memorable, so there are three key elements which are common to all Inntravel holidays, including our French walking holidays: glorious landscapes; delightful accommodation chosen by us for its friendly welcome; and traditional regional cuisine.
