This fascinating journey on the Stevenson's Trail located deep in the heart of rural south-west France, takes you through delightfully unspoiled countryside and to the Cévennes National Park. In September 1878, the young Scottish writer, Robert Louis Stevenson, departed on an epic trek which he immortalized in the classic book, ‘Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes’. You can now recreate his literary journey in a lot more comfort and, if you choose, more company than just one donkey, although this tour is also perfect for solo walkers. Stay in charming small villages and towns, eat the gastronomy of the region and sample the delicious locally-grown wine. Practice your French as you greet the locals with a hearty "bonjour" and walk on trails so tranquil that the singing of the birds is especially well-defined.
