France is blessed with some rather marvellous randonnée routes. Get your boots on and hit these notable walking spots…

CASUAL IN CROZON

South of Brest in Brittany, a defining feature of Finistère’s coastline is the craggy Crozon peninsula. Make a beeline for the mini-Carnac standing stones, the Lagatjar alignments.

BREATHE IN THE ALPINE AIR

We’re cheating here a bit – technically speaking Lac d’Émosson is actually over the border in Switzerland. But who can resist a tough hike there in some of the world’s prettiest scenery?

SUMMIT MEETINGS

Though you can actually spot it from 55km away in Pau, the iconic Pic d’Ossau in the Pyrenees is much more impressive up close. Actually climbing it is another story…

CORSE YOU CAN

Corsica offers some of the most stunning walks in France. The 180km-long, north-to-south GR20 randonnée (hiking) route is also one of the toughest. Take snacks!

  1. Your hotel offerings are obviously for the very wealthy. Not everyone can afford a $500 per night stay. Can you please review some reasonable suggestions. This just might inspire additional tourism. Merci.
