A GR is a long distance hiking trail. It is marked by two horizontal bands of the same size, one white above and one red below. These GR are hiking routes, lasting several days, which use trails (in mountain areas), if not roads, routes. The first trail was inaugurated in 1947 (the GR3 which connects Orléans and Beaugency). They are managed by the French Federation of Hiking (FFRandonnée). Today, no less than 369 GR trails cover the French territory.

Here are some of them:

  • GR 1: Tour of the Ile de France
  • GR 11 : Tour of Paris
  • GR 20 : through the Corsican mountains
  • GR 34 : Breton coastline (the customs officers’ path)
  • GR 54 : Tour of the Oisan and the Ecrins
  • GR 65 : The road to Compostela via Le Puy
  • GR TMB : Tour du Mont-Blanc

The Gr5, the most famous of them, is a long-distance trail, which crosses part of Europe, from Rotterdam to Nice, passing through Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. About 2 600km. Created in 1951.

The Grande Traversée des Alpes (GTA) is a segment of the GR5, which starts in the North at Saint-Gingolph and ends in the South, at Nice. It is a route of several weeks, which covers a distance of about 600km, 36 stages, 30,000 meters of positive elevation gain. Marking and naming in the 1970s.

The Via Alpina is a network of trails that covers all eight Alpine countries and aims to take up and continue the GTA spirit across the entire Alpine arc. Since 1999, the European Union has been developing and working on the project.

Hiking is a sport activity known for its virtues and benefits, both for the body and the mind. The mountain creates by definition a break in the horizon, and much more than a simple topographic accident, it becomes this so particular practice ground which gives to the hike a unique relief. This sometimes extreme environment will exalt passions, the taste for action and conquests for some, or the need for naturalness and authenticity for others. And because the mountain is a source of truth, ideal and knowledge, it will bring about unique and unforgettable emotions, exceptional moments of life and privileged moments.

Very often, the first experience brings its share of discoveries and surprises, contemplation and first learning are on the agenda. In a more insidious way, like a “Kiss Cool” effect, this first time has also nourished a need in itself, it has awakened a desire that must be satisfied and reactivated with each new season. And this is how the multitude of itineraries that are proposed through the Alps will animate your projects, your vacations with friends or family.
