Hiking

It is no wonder that with some of the most beautiful trails and landscapes in Europe, over 1.5 million people go hiking in France every year. From Mont Blanc to les Ecrins, the cirque de Gavarnie, and even the volcanoes of Auvergne, you can find your perfect paradise out on the trail. Enjoy a leisurely stroll, or challenge yourself by going off the beaten path. Hiking is a sport enjoyed by people of all ages, and you don’t have to be an athlete to discover your new favourite picnic spot. Spend as much time as you’d like strolling through the mountain side, then use the chairlifts to easily ascend to the summit. Breathe in the fresh air as you are perched at the top of the world, gazing at the natural beauty which surrounds you.
