Mont Blanc Ascent

Firstly may I just say I absolutely loved the Mont Blanc trip, and when talking to the other climbers who had gone with other agencies, our trip had the best mix of mountain huts, walks and training, so thank you, it really was superb.

Provence Backroads

The sublime landscapes and pretty villages of Provence have been an inspiration for artists for centuries. To really appreciate the countryside the ideal means of travel through the region is by bike. Fields of lavender and poppies, old olive groves and vine covered hills, orchards brimming with fruit and crumbling farmhouses are characteristic of the landscape. Explore historic relics from prehistoric to Roman times, and take your time to soak up the sights and sample the wine and produce of the Cotes du Rhone and greater Provence. Splendid churches, medieval castles and picture-book Montagnette villages along the way provide an excuse for frequent stops. The two nights in St Remy de Provence, the birthplace of Nostradamus and the town where Van Gogh spent his last years painting some of his best works, are one of the many highlights of this inspiring cycling journey.

traveller reviews

Most memorable moments: Hard to say, it was all so good, a picnic on a Roman Aqueduct, riding through country fields, magnificent scenery, being with my kids, the amazing food and wines.
We had a wonderful time on this trip. I was not very confident on a bike but since most of this was on small back roads this was no problem . The combination of beautiful scenery, the Alpilles, the olive groves, Roman Ruins to cycle in and of course doing this with my two adult children made this a trip to remember. We had the best picnics en route put together from market visits before we left consisting of local cheeses, pates and local wine. Delicious. In the evening our food was again delicious. I did not realise that food would be such a big part of this trip.
