More Info

Extending from the Mediterranean Sea in the south, to the North Sea and English Channel to the north, France is one of the major locations for world-class outdoor sports, especially rock climbing. It shares a border with Spain and Andorra to the southwest, Belgium and Luxemburg to the northeast, Germany and Switzerland to the east, and Italy and Monaco to the southeast. Much of its territory is bound by nature: the Pyrenees and the Alps in the south and southeast, while the Rhine cuts through the border to the east.

We had an amazing trip, we wanted to explore the Mercantour region, reconnect with nature, and spend quality time as a couple. Fabrice understood the brief, was clear in his guidelines to prepare the trip, proposed different options, and, ultimately, adapted the hikes on a day to day basis based on the weather. For example, instead of having us hike all day in the mountains in pouring rain on the first day, he adapted the program and took us for a hike all around Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat along the riviera coast. The hikes were stunning, especially at this time of the year (fall) with amazing lights and colors. We highly recommend Fabrice as a guide, he is very knowledgeable on the fauna&flora, local history, on wolves. He also initiated us to some key principles of Nordic walking and mindful walking. Thanks Explore & Share team for connecting us. We definitely will do it again and recommend to friends.

We spent a day hiking with guide Fabrice in Mecantaur Park. It was a great hike with different levels of difficulty. We rested at the lake at around 2000 meters and then made our way to the mountain pass high above. We were rewarded with a lot of wildlife sightings and even a patch of snow in August. Patrice was great and gave us a lot of information about the area and the flora and fauna. He was also great at pointing out historical events that took place in the area in the past.

W spend two incredible days hiking with our family guided by Aurélie. Aurélie not only guided us through breathtaking views but also showed particular skills to motivate and animate our childrens (7,5y, 5,5y and 2,5y). They definitely keep warm memories of their first hiking and overnight experience in the Alps. We highly recommend all families to experience this type of hike with Aurélie. Thank you very much! LH
