Hey I'm Tim! I'm a trained social worker and specialized in happiness, addiction, wellness and coaching. I also have a fitness trainer license. Best prerequisites for a trip or? Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We will then drive down together to our first stop the Jura National Park or meet there. All further trips and location changes I will take you with me if you want, no matter how you arrive. You don't really need to worry about that. We will arrive comfortably on the first day. On the second day we start with activities, which mainly means hiking and of course discovering the surroundings. After 2 nights we continue to the Cevennes. Here we also spend several days and have enough time for various tours. From there 4 nights later to Ecrins and Mercantour. Plan is to hike in both national parks times, because we are exactly in the middle. Another 4 nights later we travel back to the Jura for the last two nights before heading back. Here we still have a little time to undertake missed things. So the tour includes 4 national parks and many hikes there locally, also I will make in the Cevennes with high probability a canoe trip through the Gorges, which is already included in the price here 👍. To all hiking starting points or excursion destinations we can drive from our locations. Depending on your mood or fitness, of course, a break day at the hotel or alternative program can be inserted by you at any time, you do not have to join my program and remain flexible. So the trip will be pretty stress-free and you always have the option to do your own thing or join me. Also my plan is to vary between quieter excursions, relaxation days and the hikes. So you can always decide to either comfortably join me on my hikes and excursions and let me take the lead or do your thing if you need some rest or more action. My hikes will be between 10-25km in one day and you can of course walk them without luggage except your trail provisions, the rest we leave in the hotel/car. The exact altitude and climbs I can tell you in advance. It is recommended to have a certain basic fitness for such routes. Some of the selected hotels have a spa area to recharge your batteries. Depending on the location, there are also pools and lakes for swimming and relaxing. Of course, you can also simply enjoy iwo view and a book. As I said, you are very flexible here. We discover France together! Arrival: The trip can be started gladly from NRW near Mönchengladbach with me, and can also end there. Take you gladly in the car there and back from there, otherwise own departure and arrival goes of course also. Included in the price: - Accommodation (hotel) - 4x breakfast - Travel expenses of the excursions -Trips between accommodations - canoe trip - Tripleader fee Not included: Meals: Only on 4 days breakfast is included with the accommodations. Do it like me and eat out cheap or treat yourself in the hotel (16 €breakfast/ 35 € dinner). Accommodation: We will stay in 2-3 star hotels. Depending on the room distribution in our accommodations or possible offers the actual price of the accommodations can still vary considerably. Indicated is the price now for shared room occupancy I am looking forward to your messages!

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-3
Stopover 1. our stay in the Jura National Park. We have a pool and sauna on site, to let us feel good after the trip first. Strengthened we start then probably after the arrival day the first hikes in the national park and look at our place. After all, we also need to know where to eat and agree when we eat together, with which everyone agrees. Since we are several days on site ( also on the return trip) we can test ourselves culinary and pay attention to the Google reviews.

Les Vans

Day 3-7
Stop 2 the Cevennes. Hiking and canoeing, sunbathing. Here is our stop with a single room. However, probably the only hotel with German language and the food should be great! Here we can surely quietly dine one day also at the hotel restaurant. A whole canoe day in the Gorges would cost 36€ per person, there are of course also shorter variants. But it is worth it in any case.


Day 7-11
Our 3 stop. Here our accommodation is located between the Encrins and Mercantour and is a good starting point for both national parks. Breakfast is included in the price this time. So only have to get us something for the rest of the day. My plan is to explore the surroundings as well as the national parks. Mountain climbing is probably also possible there. However, I do not intend to do that myself


Day 11-13
Last stop. Again in the same place and hotel as on our outward journey. Here we use the time to catch up on what we may have missed or just relax at the pool and sauna to fortify ourselves for the journey home.
