France Guided Walking Week
France Guided Walking Week
A wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable week of gentle walking between gorgeous towns and villages in the deep, rural south of France, through mostly oak-dominated native woodlands.
Next Dates : May 2023
Location : The southern French départements of Lot and Aveyron, located approx 1.5 hours north of Toulouse.
Level : Moderate, but with occasional short stretches of tough inclines and declines.
Distance Walked Per Day : From 12km to 24km.
Duration : 8 days, 7 nights, 5 days of walking, plus one rest day rambling around a beautiful town.
Our week takes us between the Lot and the Aveyron Rivers, as we discover this magnificent area of limestone plateaus, dotted with the cutest villages and inhabited by the friendliest French you’ll find.
We walk mostly off-road, through beautiful forests and alongside open fields, from one stunning little village to the next. We enjoy one rest day, where we visit a superb outdoors market in the beautiful and bustling town of Villefranche de Rouergue.
This trip really gets you into the very heart of rural southern France, for a week of great walking, food, wine and company, all at a relaxed pace.
There is no climbing involved! However, as we walk along rivers and up on plateaus, there are short stretches of more demanding inclines and declines, but no mountains.
The longest day of hiking, at 24km, can be skipped if you wish, by catching a short train ride.

If a continental walking week where single bookings are available would be your preference, check out our Catalunya Walking Week here.
You can view the provisional tour prices above.
As of November 2022, I cannot guarantee these prices, due to rising inflation. Prices should be treated as indicatory only and are non-binding. Fixed prices will be published as soon as I have them from my local accommodation partners, hopefully by December or January latest.
