2021 Scheduled trips

Please note that Trekking in the Provence is not a travel agency. I can not offer all inclusive holidays.
Your holiday price has 2 components: guiding and expenses, and then  accommodation and planned transport. These 2 costs are added togethe to give the price  but this is solely for your convenience. You can choose to pay your accommodation costs yourself, but usually people prefer me to include this.  
Additional costs are often van rental, days spent organizing and checking the walks and transfer charges during the holiday. A full breakdown of costs for any particular holiday is available from me on request.

Classic Provence: Summer Flowers and Scenic  Summits
 

Meet 4 May 2021 1350€ per person confirmed
8 days including arrival and departure days. 5 days walking, 1 day midweek for visiting Roman ruins and a Provençal market. Half day cycling for those that wish, or a via ferrata ascent with a local guide.Here we are in northern Provence, the secret gems of southern France, not so well-known, far from the sea but in the heart of spectacular and wild scenery. Lots of our walks will take us through olive groves and vineyards, to lavender fields on  plateaux way above deep rocky gorges, gouged out over time by the fast flowing rivers of the regions. Vultures abound!
The hikes to these summits are exciting and rough but we’ll also take the time to explore the region too, especially the many ancient villages and hidden gems. For the first time this year this trip will have 2 different hotel bases.
