“Hello Christine: We enjoyed reading this article. Our trip with you last summer was very special and we would be happy for you to give our e-mail address to any UK based enquirers who are thinking of booking and would like to speak to someone who has already been. Best wishes” Lesley Eddleston & family :firstname.lastname@example.org
Climax (Mont Pelat); well organised; easy to follow route; very amenable hosts at night stops; honest mountain fare (and plenty of it); mostly off the tourist trail; good value for money; under our own steam but companionship from other trekkers in eves; accommodation basic but, on the whole, charming; glad to support local economy in lesser visited valley; no Brits (that's a plus!). How do we beat that next year?
“I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on Mercantour self guided walking holidays. Great holiday - five-star trip. Superb scenery; walks outstanding capped by 10,000-foot ” reviewed 26/8/06 by Andrew Baxter
Hello Christine, Just a quick e-mail to let you know we had a fantastic walk up through the Haute Vallée du Var to the Parc du Mercantour with Manu (our donkey) last week. Manu was perfect for us as was the accommodation and food for the whole week. Thankyou and best regards. Keith and Leanne Massey
Itinerance is a membership organisation who promotes independent walking tours in the Southern French Alps that are run in a way that increases the positive impacts on our mountainous and remote valley and on our environment. We are also nimble enough to offer a "tailor made" service should the trip content and dates not quite suit.
We are all guides working in partnership with the Mercantour National Park. We have been awarded this label for the high quality service we provide . We encourage environmentally-friendly tourism. Our success is proving that there is a real consumer demand for more responsible tourism
Go with a donkey
These affectionate animals have been part of our family for as long as we can remember. They love the company of humans, especially that of children, who they will encourage to keep on walking without sulking. For people who want to hike from place to place, but don’t want a donkey, we can also organise luggage transport by car of course!
