Overview

Escape to Provence with this unique travel experience. We will hike through Provence at a relaxed pace to fully immerse ourselves in sunny weather, colorful landscapes, and local customs. Provence is located in southeastern France between the Southern Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. Our hiking adventure will take us throughout this region to explore 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 filled with the region's famous lavender, see some beautiful historic architecture, and sample a wide range of local gastronomy. Our tour begins and ends in Aix en Provence, a university town located in the heart of this beautiful region that has a TGV train station for flying in and out of Paris. The tour is 7 nights / 8 days in duration and to make the most of our experience we stay in 3 locations over that period. Short transfers 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. More Info and Next Steps: Please follow the link below to see the detailed trip prospectus and info on next steps. We invite you to join us and look forward to adventure-traveling with you!
