Culture, History, and Hiking in Northern France

Client Comments

Many highlights come to mind: our sand and sea pilgrimage to Mont St-Michel, delightful walks with gorgeous scenery and powerful history. Culture and hiking interwoven with non-stop fabulous French cuisine!
— Jo L., Santa Barbara, CA
Loved it all: scenery, points of interest, local guides, relaxing meals, good company, walking, comfortable transportation, and terrific WT guides. Just a nice trip all around.
— Susan F., Greenwich, CT
Very high standards in every respect, from the office, to the itinerary, food and accommodation and trip leaders. We met a couple in our hotel in Dinan on a holiday with another travel company who were most unhappy with their tour, and we felt very pleased that we had booked again with Wilderness Travel, and not one of the other tour groups.

I can't imagine having better guides. We loved our trip, smiled and laughed a lot, and ate great food (I really hadn't expected it to be so good--from picnic lunches to leisurely restaurant lunches and dinners, and extra seafood and pastry "snacks"). The hikes and historical tours were all terrific.
— Susan and Doug M., Macon, GA
I found the trip a wonderful combination of history, pre-history, beautiful coastal scenery, and divine food!

We had a lot of fun, visited many interesting sites, and the most unusual pilgrim walk across the bay to Mont Saint Michel was unforgettable.
— Kathy C., Houston, TX
Our stay on Mont Saint Michel was a highlight as was the four-mile walk to it across the sands. It was great, great fun! It felt like we were doing our own little pilgrimage.

The trip of a lifetime, with leaders who were beyond outstanding.
— Bix W., Pebble Beach, CA
The highlight of this trip for me was the barefoot walk to Mont St. Michel. It's not to be missed!

An outstanding trip with a well thought out itinerary.
— Mary M., Stillwater, MN
An excellent trip with a nice balance of hiking, history and cuisine.
— Tom N., Upper St Clair, PA
I loved the scenery, the deep history, the emotional Normandy beach hikes and cemetery visit, the Mont St. Michel pilgrimage, the super care, conversation and humor of our guides (truly extraordinary men), the great French food and seafood, the wonderful sharing with fellow hikers, and the great hikes of varying flavors and terrain.
