Description

Are you looking for a program to have an inspiring experience and discover a wonderful area? Then join me on this 4-day hiking program in Alsace, a historical region in northeastern France.

During this adventure, we’ll enjoy hiking around beautiful villages and visit different medieval castles and constructions. We’ll learn about the culture, history, architecture and geology from Alsace. Also, you’ll be able to see the typical local storks!

As for the itinerary, on day 1, we’ll explore the vineyard and the castles of Eguisheim on a 3-hour hike. On day 2, we’ll visit the popular Haut Koenigsbourg Castle (5.30 hours) and then travel to the commune of Mittelbergheim. On day 3. we’ll take a 5-hour walk through a geological trail in Barr, visit the Landsberg Castle and return to Mittelbergheim. Then, we’ll share a wine tasting afternoon together. Finally, on day 4, we’ll go to Andlau and Spesbourg Castles and have the chance to explore Colmar, a beautiful medieval city located on the border with Germany.

Please, take into account that the level of the program goes from easy to intermediate. We’ll spend 3-5 hours hiking and face an elevation gain of around 550 meters each day. Therefore, it’s important to be in good physical condition. Also, keep in mind that you can either join a group in the listed date or you can book a private day with flexible dates.

So, do you find this activity attractive? Then don’t hesitate to send your request and discover the fantastic culture of this beautiful area in France.

Another option could be this 1-day hike that I lead in Val de Bagnes, near Verbier, in Switzerland. Check it out!

Super randonnée en famille avec Sarah, une accompagnatrice extra, ayant mille tours dans son sac pour motiver et amuser les plus jeunes. En plus de l’excellente ambiance, nous avons eu la chance de voir des paysages magnifiques sur le Valais. Et puis quel plaisir de passer une nuit en refuge avec ses enfants. Merci Sarah, nous reviendrons !
