Come on a historical journey through World War I and travel to Col de la Chapelotte with UIMLA-certified leader Aymeric on a half-day hike through the Valley of the Plain and learn about the significance of the Vosges while immersed in its beauty.
France in known for many things, one being its vast and profound history. With an astonishing culture that has stood the test of time, it should come as no surprise that waiting in the forested eastern parts of the country are enriching tours of epic proportion. One of the most notable points of interest is the Col de la Chapelotte and the associate Valley of the Plain.
This hiking program delves deep into the war-era past of France and expounds upon a half-day hike with captivating information and evocative true stories. Blending the stunning wilderness scenery with wartime facts, you will learn about the zeppelins of the early 20th century as well as the trenches and battles of the mountain war.
The timeless features of this mountain pass and the surrounding Vosges are both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually stimulating. Few trips combine history and nature as well as this forested tour, allowing for a personal involvement in the Vosges battles of the war. You are sure to have a compelling experience that will stay with you long after you leave the Col de la Chapelotte.
Everyone is more than welcome to join this rich cultural hike. It is only a half-day trip, but the broad appeal should make it a fulfilling program for all who participate. I truly love this region, and I can’t wait to share it with those who want to explore it.
