We are 8 guides that have made our passion for breathtaking landscapes, nature and guiding fellow hikers our job. 10 years ago we founded Provence Evasion and have since then lead numerous hiking weeks every year.
We live in the beautiful Provence, in the triangle of Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and La Ciotat. Day in and day out we hike in its hills: From the Mont Ventoux and Luberon to the Calanques National park and from the Côte Bleue to „Cezannes favorite mountain“, the Sainte Victoire. In summer and winter we are often visiting the closely situated Alps with our hiking groups. The Mediterranean island of Corsica and the north of Italy are other regions, which are regular destinations of our travels.
We take pride in the fact that all of our hiking travels are created from scratch by us and are a fruit of intense research for finding the perfect path and the perfect accommodation for a great variety of clients. It is important to us to follow as closely as possible the principles of ecotourism and to keep a low CO2 Footprint. Close contact to the land, the people and the culture of where a tour takes place, is key to us in order to provide an authentic experience for our clients.
A multilingual team
We welcome guests from all around the world and nearly all of us speak English. German and Italian are the other languages spoken by a part of our team.
A reliable partner
We work as a local partner for renowned hiking agencies, such as the German agency Gebeco.

“The island of beauty”, as the French call it, is a hikers paradise and offers everything from easy hikes along sandy beaches and crystal clear waters to high mountain hikes to one of its many peaks above 2000 meters.
