Walking holidays in the French Alps –

iconic paths with incredible views
If the awe-inspiring views and crisp mountain air weren’t enough, the abundance of wildlife, and the fascinating blend of cultures, make walking holidays in the French Alps very special. In the true spirit of a Slow holiday, pause as often as you like to admire it all – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage to carry (we take care of that, along with providing route notes and ensuring the arrangements run like clockwork), so don’t rush…
