Trekking Holidays in France
Our trekking holidays are your chance to experience France in a different way. Take on some of the more challenging routes and terrains, and be rewarded with spectacular views and an incomparable sense of wellbeing and achievement.
The accommodation on our French trekking holidays is typically more basic as the locations are more remote and follow paths that have been open for centuries. The whole experience is enriched by the welcoming hoteliers and hearty meals that may be shared ‘en famille’ with other guests.
