Hill-walking with the Camisards - Three centuries ago, the rugged and isolated Cévennes in south-central France was the venue for a bitter conflict, Hikers with a penchant for historical hillwalking can re-live the main events, visit key locations and battlefields, and learn about the principal personalities in play during the course of the rebellion.

Hiking the Petite Camargue from Europe’s Greenest Coastal Resort - La Grand Motte is located on the Mediterranean coast, within easy access of both Montpellier airport (20 minutes drive) and Nimes airport (45 minutes drive). With La Petite and La Grande Camargue to its east, and Sète and Agde to its west, those who love the coast can enjoy its pleasures as well as spend time walking its coastal canal system.

The Regordane Way - Trekking the real Regordane Trail takes you across high volcanic plateau, the schist slopes of the Céze Valley and the dry, stony and flatter surfaces of the Garrigues; through medieval villages and linear settlements, where you admire architecture, vestiges and learn about the history of this sacred route.

The Taming of The Great Moss, The Shrew and Scafell (A walking route up Scafell Pike) - Mid September and Good forecast for Saturday inspired us to a walk up Scafell Pike. Rather than join the hordes of weekend walkers the route we chose would hopefully be quiet. In fact it was deserted apart from one other walker with the same idea and a few people out for a camping trip. CLICK TO VIEW

Via Ferratas (paths of iron) were originally developed by the Italians during the last war as a way of scaling the rock faces of the dolomites and other areas without detection. CLICK TO VIEW
