This new Fifth edition of our guidebook to walking in western Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon in France, features 76 long and short day walks in areas of outstanding natural beauty and historical interest. It has been thoroughly updated since the pandemic and is now presented in a wider format, so that no mapping is lost in the gutter.
We cover an area beginning at Aix-en-Provence, heading west via the Lubéron and Mont Ventoux to the great Roman cities and the Pont du Gard. We travel north to the Ardèche, the Tarn and the Cirque de Navacelles and south through Hérault to Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi, crossing the Corbières and the Land of the Cathars to the foot of Canigou, holy mountain of the Pyrenees.
Routes of varying difficulty are featured, all of which are mapped in detail. Many of the hikes are circular, taking in the best of this region.
This guide also includes 12 car tours and 2 touring maps covering the area from the Pyrenees to the Italian border in the east.
When to go: Generally the best months for walking are March to June and September and October, but most of the walks described can be enjoyed throughout the winter months.
