Fitness


The best way to experience the stunning regions of Normandy - Brittany and
Provence is by walking. In Normandy-Brittany, we wander the beautiful, cobbled
villages, picturesque harbours, and sandy beaches of St Malo. Old villages and city
walls have steps to climb, there will be uneven coastal pathways and beaches. In
Provence we visit Pont Du Gard, and Beaux de Provence which is a car free village.
On both tours there is walking involved so make sure this will not be an issue for
you. Please read the tour itinerary to understand the style of our tours.
