Hiking in the French Alps

From $1,620.00
8 Days & 7 Nights

Hiking in the French Alps

  • Walk spectacular high trails in the quiet and unspoilt Queyras
  • Magnificent backdrop of high peaks, wildflower meadows and grazing pastures
  • Savour delicious local cheeses, jams and charcuteries
  • Spot chamois, marmots and golden eagles
  • Authentic French dinners included each night
The Queyras is a haven for both experienced hikers and those venturing into alpine trekking for the first time. Nestled in the southern part of the French Alps and boasting numerous 3000m peaks, impressive waterfalls, and quaint villages, each day of walking in these mountains will reward you with spectacular views. Lesser-known than some of the other Alpine routes, but equally as gratifying, it offers much quieter trails and an authentic experience of the French mountains. This week-long hiking adventure follows the GR58 circuit, completing a scenic loop around the Queyras Natural Park. Staying each night in charming hotels, enjoy delicious local cuisine and immerse yourself in the local traditions and the unique charm of the Queyras.
