FAQs: Hiking in Vosges

What should I know about Hiking Vosges?

Vosges is both the name of a French department and the name of a range of low mountains located in eastern France, very close to the border with Germany. The mountain range is divided into the Higher Vosges, Middle Vosges and Lower Vosges and the Grand Ballon (1424m) is its highest peak. Hiking and trekking itineraries abound around here and snowshoeing is also quite popular during the winter months. Though relatively close to several major European cities, you’ll definitely get that middle-of-nowhere feeling out here!

Why should I choose Vosges for my Hiking adventure?

The tranquility

Take a deep breath and let the fresh air in. You're in Les Vosges: close enough to many large European cities (Brussels, Strasbourg, Luxembourg, Paris) to provide a great weekend getaway and distant enough to feel thousands of miles away from the office.

The nice views

Softly-rounded hills, lush forests and mountain lakes characterize the landscape of Les Vosges. Add some dairy farms to the combo and you've got a pretty good picture of what you can expect from the area.

What people are saying about Hiking | Vosges



Très bon weekend passé dans les Vosges. Aymeric a tout organisé de main de maître et est un super guide. Vivement recommandé pour vos randonnées dans la région



Super week-end! Eric est un guide parfait! Il est passionné et c'est très intéressant de l'écouter parler des arbres, de la forêt et de ses bienfaits. La rando, en elle-même ne présente pas trop de difficulté, d'autant qu'Eric fait tout pour que le rythme de marche incite à observer et profiter du calme de la forêt.



Tant de bienfaits... Dame Nature nous protège et nous offre sa beauté. Eric nous guide et distille son savoir sur les Vosges et sa flore ; et les arbres diffusent leurs phytoncides! Tous nos sens sont en éveil! Le temps s'arrête! Le groupe est porteur, soutenant, bienveillant et drôle (Merci à chacun d'entre eux!). Un enchantement à s'offrir : cela fait un bien fou! (Et en plus, les Bleus ont gagné!)
