France Walking Trips

Discover the Real France on a Walking Holiday

Experience France on an unforgettable walking tour. France is the nation that epitomises the finer things in life with its cuisine, culture and landscape. There’s a palette of indulgences to be had – perhaps the most difficult part is deciding which walking trip to take. 

Walk along fields of lavender in Provence or bask in the breathtaking coastal views of Normandy and the French Riviera. Treat yourself to French culinary delights on the Food Lover’s Walking Tour along the historic Camino trail, the French Way of St James. Chance upon castles and grand estates from the Middle Ages while hiking in the Languedoc and the Rhone Valley

Reward yourself after a walk with wine tasting from cellar doors in Bordeaux or Burgundy. Fall in love with the colourful architecture and unique German-infused culture of Alsace while on a hiking trip along the Rhine. Walk and witness the fascinating sites of WWIs Western Front or embark on the island of Corsica’s premier hike, the GR20, Europe’s most challenging long distance walking trail. 

Choosing an in-depth walking tour like these will get you beyond the tourist fanfare and immerse yourself in a genuine French walking holiday.
