For people who enjoy long hiking expeditions and cultured society, joining a group that goes walking in France makes perfect sense. France's reputation for refined pleasure holds true in actuality. Moreover, walkers delight in looking out at the colorful and hilly French landscape that offers many spectacular views.

French land cannot be separated from France's rich history. The historical nature of the land, the great battles won and lost there, the fabled monarchs come and gone, the influential artists and philosophers who have been inspired by the terrain, all add to the aura felt when walking in France. Stop at Vaison-la-Romaine, Gigondas, and Fontaine de Vaucluse for great scenery and historical significance. The best tour guides will know of many other greats stops as well.

Despite its impressive history, French society has never slowed down to dwell on its past. Some of the world's greatest living artists call France their home. The quality of French cooking, wine, and champagne remains unmatched in the entire world.

Walking in France for the Tastes

A great hiking tour takes participants inside the society in which they are visiting. While walking in France, hikers should be taken to places where they can taste fine wine, cheese, and French pastries. Enjoyment of food is an integral aspect of French culture. Wines and meals are essential to any itinerary.
