The GR®9 starts in the Jura Mountains, where hikers are greeted by dense forests, lush meadows, and rugged terrain. The trails wind through these picturesque landscapes, offering breathtaking views of ridges and valleys. Hikers can also admire the local fauna and flora, with the possibility of spotting chamois, deer, and a variety of birds. The route continues through the rolling landscapes of the Rhone region, with panoramas of terraced vineyards and meandering rivers.

The trail crosses the Chartreuse Massif, which is home to diverse flora and fauna, including many rare and protected species. The dense forests of conifers and deciduous trees, alpine meadows, and lakes provide habitats for wildlife. Hikers may have the chance to observe chamois, ibex, marmots, and a wide variety of birds. Beyond the mountains, the Isere department offers gentler and rolling landscapes. Green plains, vineyards, and orchards characterize the central part of the department.

As the Mediterranean approaches, the landscape transforms, giving way to sunny hills and olive fields. Situated between the Pre-Alps mountains and the Rhone Valley, the Baronnies form a preserved region of exceptional natural beauty. Located in Provence, the Baronnies offer an ideal setting for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts. The landscapes of the Baronnies are characterized by undulating hills, verdant valleys, oak and pine forests, as well as lavender fields. In the heart of Provence, the Luberon is a region of exceptional beauty that attracts visitors from around the world every year. With its perched villages, rolling landscapes, lavender fields, and olive groves, hiking through the lavender fields is a unique sensory experience.

The GR®9 crosses the Sainte-Victoire Massif. This place has inspired many artists, including the famous painter Paul Cezanne. Well-maintained trails allow hikers to explore the limestone ridges of the mountain and admire panoramas of vineyards, olive groves, and picturesque villages in the region. The Sainte-Baume Regional Nature Park is home to rich and diverse biodiversity. The Mediterranean forests covering the mountain slopes consist of evergreen oaks, Aleppo pines, and boxwood. They provide refuge for many animal species, including birds of prey such as the Bonelli's eagle and the peregrine falcon, as well as mammals like wild boars and foxes.
