Holidays in Mercantour, France

Above the sandy beaches and chic resorts of the French Riviera rise the Provençal Alps: climbing majestically into the dramatic Mercantour National Park. A unique and diverse landscape rich in wildlife that includes chamois, buzzards, golden eagles, boar and deer amongst its thick oak and pine forests, olive groves, scrubland and high meadows, this is a nature lover's paradise.

With endless marked trails and footpaths as well as the chance to strike off on your own, you can hike or stroll to your heart's content whilst enjoy stunning vistas of the Alpine and Mediterranean landscapes. Unsurprisingly, there are some fantastic guided (and self-guided) walking holidays in the Mercantour, as well as a range of other holidays with minimal impact on the local and wider environment. Check out some of the best below.
