Long Hiking Trails / Long Distance Footpaths

The GR®4, also known as the Atlantic to Mediterranean Trail, is an iconic hiking trail that spans across France from one ocean to another. This spectacular trail offers hikers a unique experience as they traverse diverse landscapes, regions, and climates, from the Atlantic coast to the Alps and all the way to the Mediterranean. The trail starts in Royan, Charente-Maritime, offering hikers breathtaking views of the ocean and sandy beaches. They can feel the sea breeze and enjoy the coastal scenery, sand dunes, and steep cliffs along the way. Continuing eastward, hikers pass through the Massif Central region and begin their ascent into the mountains, crossing lush green valleys, turbulent rivers, and dense forests. The Alps present awe-inspiring panoramas with snow-capped peaks, crystal-clear lakes, and alpine meadows adorned with wildflowers.
