Overview

Our hiking tour is considered active but not as demanding as trekking holidays can be. Expect to be on your feet throughout the day exploring the authentic and natural side of Provence´s best kept secrets. From the Baby Alps (Les Alpilles), to the enchanting forests and crags of the Luberon and the inspiring landscapes of Sainte Victoire, you will be exposed to the greatest diversity the region has to offer. There will also be opportunities to visit the colorful markets of Provence and see some beautiful historic buildings, grand architecture, and sample a wide range of local gastronomy. Our tour ends with a return to Aix en Provence in the heart of this beautiful region - leaving options to explore further or return home. The tour is 7 nights / 8 days in duration and to make the most out of the experience we stay in 3 locations over that period. Short transfers between 20 minutes and 1 hr 15 min max are required to bring us to trail heads and/or new destinations and you carry only a light backpack daily. The hikes are led by an experienced leader from the AMC and a local professional guide who is a specialist in the region. Throughout our time together we will endeavor to enjoy and understand this wonderful region via the AMC's mission of education, conservation, and appreciation of the natural world. Please follow the link below to the trip prospectus. If you would like to join this hiking adventure, email us with a request for application materials. Our contact information is at the end of the prospectus. We look forward to adventure-traveling with you!
