Are you ready for a hiking adventure you will never forget?  Then join me on a 4-day excursion in the heart of the Vosges and discover the most peaceful and unique wilderness in France.

Located in the east of France, our hiking tour will start in Epinal. This French historic town is the capital of the Vosges department and is famous for its ancient arcades and charming old houses. During the days to come, we will hike through forests and hills and admire its beautiful nature.

We will take the GR7 Route. Along the way, we will stop at the Ballon d’Alsace (1,247 m), and from its summit, you will enjoy the views of the Vosges Mountains, the Rhine Valley, and the Black Forest. Also, we will discover the spectacular Monts Faucilles, also known as the Sickle Hills. Furthermore, we will go to the great Uzemain watershed located between the North Sea and the Mediterranean. This is one of the Vosges most beautiful treasures! For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

About the guide

Mountain Leader

I'm a UIMLA-certified leader and have been sharing my passion for nature and the mountains for the last 30 years. I love to venture into isolated and quiet places to discover new environments, new panoramas...everything nature has to offer.

I love to share these precious moments during hikes or treks and help you discover life's subtleties by walking towards the unknown, both in France and abroad. This is why I became a mountain leader.

Hiking will be the starting point of all our adventures and will allow us to cook wild plants or mushrooms, watch the stars at night, draw, photograph or film all that is ephemeral in nature. But we will also find the time to relax and take in a beautiful moment.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
