France Hiking Trips
Hiking the Alps, Walking the Countryside
A country of vast and stunningly diverse landscapes, it is not surprising that France is crisscrossed with thousands of kilometers of well-marked and well-maintained footpaths. From the grand peaks and glaciers of the high Alps to the sunbaked limestone cliffs of Provence, to the gentler rolling hills of the Dordogne, the hiking options in France are as intriguing as they are endless.
Immensely proud of their country’s natural beauty as well as its art, architecture, and cuisine, what is most evident about the French is their reverence of beauty and penchant for savoring the moment. Whichever Distant Journeys trip you choose, you are certain to find that traveling through France on foot is wonderfully in keeping with the essential character of this country.
