Join us for an unforgettable adventure June 19-25, 2015 followed by the Parc du Queyras Wildflower Hiking Tour!
The journey begins exploring old town Nice where we base at a comfortable, authentic pension/bed & breakfast. Early morning walks up the coline above town offer the opportunity to wander the town cemetery and take in the breathtaking views of the deep blue Mediterranean below. The Matisse Museum, walks along the malecon and explorations of all the wonderful nuances in-between make for a fun filled three days.
The next three nights are spent at a scenic hotel over-looking the plunging river running through Moustiers-Saint-Marie, just west of the Gorge du Verdon. The little chapel tucked into the high rocks over-looking the village inspires awe, the shoppers will love wandering the maze of stores throughout the village and then the highlight is exploring the Gorge du Verdon, known as one of Europe’s most stunning gorges which runs 25 kilometres long and up to 700 metros deep and boasts a deep turquoise color. Next we drive north through scenic backroads to the Parc du Queyras where our 11 day hiking & cultural adventure begins! Cost TBA.
