Trekking in Provence offers walking in the spectacularly wild and unspoiled Northern Provence, notably in the Drôme Baronnies, one of the most sparsely populated regions of France...
Come and see Provence as you’ve never seen it——on foot, in the countryside,unhurried and relaxing, or sporty and challenging, with new experiences around every corner. 
My trips are for travellers not tourists!

Fantastic scenery, verdant hillsides, rocky gorges, rugged summits, trails bordered by abundant aromatic flora,  vultures soaring overhead; charming villages, superb gourmet regional food and wines….this is authentic rural France, far from the souless crowded tourist centres. 





"We would rate this as one of our all-time favorite hiking spots.  The weather was perfect, the landscape and colors were amazing and Hilary provided a different hiking experience every day. Did I mention the food and wine? We will definitely go back!"
Loree and Dave oct 2015

"I wasn’t prepared for the stunning scenery -  jaw-dropping limestone crags circled by olives and vines. And vultures! Wonderful hikes, company, food and wine – all I’ve come to expect from Hilary
Louise May 2013

ENGLISH IN THE MOUNTAINS

Pour tous ceux qui voudraient apprendre l'anglais dans un milieu décontracté et sympas je vous propose des balades and randos à la demi-journée et journée, et on parlera l'anglais à votre niveau. 

Gorgeous Provence was very successful in its first year. This trip meets near Nice on the Côte d'Azur and for the first few days we explore the wonderful rolling hills just inland, before heading into the rugged wilds further north, culminating in the classic must-do hike through the grandiose Verdon Gorge.

Peaks and Passes of Northern Provence has now become Hidden Provence. This truly spectacular trip is based in the area that bridges the gap between the foothills of the high Alps and the more central region of Provence where my classic trips take place. We were hiking through lavender fields, and beautiful beech woods. The scenery is wild, and our trails took us to high plateaux formed by steep cliffs and deep gorges. This trip is the perfect option for those looking for an authentic hiking experience in a most beautiful and little known rural region of France.Take a look at some shots here  

Classic Provence was the original trip and remains the quintessential introduction to Provence. Our last group enjoyed perfect weather and some really good hikes. Some folks were back for the second time so we went to some new places as well as the real classics. We all especially enjoyed a day in and around the small and bustling town of Buis les Baronnies where we visited the Provençal market in the morning. This is definitely the best market I've been to with so much local produce and lots of great cafés too. After that some of the group rode bikes up a remote and pretty valley whilst others did a half day summit hike. Click this link to see shots from the latest trip
