Walking in France: In High Provence
In High Provence

A 25-day walk made up of two parts.

We started with a 6-day, 120 km walk in High Provence, from Saint-André-les-Alpes by way of Castellane, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and Riez, to finish in Gréoux-les-Bains.

This was followed by a 19-day, 460 km walk on the GR65 (The Way of Saint-Jacques or the Pilgrims’ Way) starting at le Puy-en-Velay.

We made a slight deviation down the river Célé, from Béduer to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, then rejoined the main Pilgrim’s Way at Cahors and went on as far as Moissac.

A quick visual summary of this walk can be seen in the yearly photo album.
