Walking Holidays in France is both our name and passion, The Enlightened Traveller® our brand and objective. Our complete focus on French walking tours gives us a corporate competency and ‘savoir faire’ that you, an enlightened travel(l)er, can rely on. Benefit from purchasing direct from us, the tour providers; get local support when you need it, including evenings and weekends; and add value by personalizing your holiday. All tours are self-guided and ideal for independent travelers walking alone, with family or friends.

Whatever your preference for Walking Holidays in France, be it long distance trails or short walking tours, Light, Moderate or Harder challenges, you will find much here to arouse your passions; and whether seasoned hiker, cautious beginner or somewhere in between, you are empowered by our comprehensive walking notes, enlightened by the insightful tour dossier and relaxed in

the knowledge that we move your luggage onto your next hotel. Our French walking tours appeal to a broad spectrum of tastes. Each is an adventure enabling you to discover parts of France that few get to see. You enjoy the journey as well as the trip itself and appreciate that pleasure is commensurate with personal effort.

Our dossier sets the scene and your inquisitiveness is handsomely rewarded. You return home a more enlightened person, where your learning curve continues; and your next walking holiday in France starts from a higher level of understanding. We call it the ‘walking dialectic,’ which complements and reinforces your own, personal walk-life balance. The Enlightened Traveller® is synonymous with edifying walking holidays in France.

Delighting mind, body and sole!”
