Walking holidays in France

Walking holidays in France

The beautiful peaks and valleys of the French Alps are one of France's greatest draws for the keen walker.

France is western Europe’s largest country and holds within its borders a wonderful array of different landscapes, strong regional cultures and evocative destinations. ‘Paris,’ ‘Champagne,’ ‘Provence,’ or ‘Riviera’ stimulate the senses and provide captivating images of beauty, colour, style and charm.

It's arguably the Alps that provide France's greatest playground for the keen walker and draw the biggest crowds but even here, you can still find small corners of the French Alps that are surprisingly little known outside of the country such as the stunning Claree Valley. Here you will find traditional alpine villages and a culture little changed by time. The valley is surrounded by high peaks and a network of trails that lead to mountain lakes and stunning viewpoints.

Make the short hop to France and you'll no doubt be captivated by the landscape, history and culture of our favourite neighbour.
