Memorable parts? The Verdon gorges. Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Tips? You have to be able to walk around 15 km a day, and climb up to 500 m a day. Note that the trip notes do not include getting to the starts of the walks. Some of the descents are a little slippy, because of loose stones. You need to be able to carry around 2 litres of water (it gets hot), and you have to buy your own food in the mornings, for picnic lunches. Local benefits? Yes, the guide is local, as are...

If you want to be totally catered for and live in verdant peace for a week, but have company too-this is the place for you! (more)Clare McKee

From
£1,219
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the top of the Col du Tourmalet. Tips? You need to be really fit for this holiday. Train beforehand as much as possible. Some climbs are very long and arduous.
