Back-to-school sport outings
To stay in shape
Are you a sports lover (or someone whose resolution is to exercise more 🙂) looking for new challenges? Here are some walking, running, and cycling events perfect for enjoying the landscapes and the sweetness of late summer in Vaucluse.
Walking to warm up
To gently ease ourselves back into exercise, let’s get moving with hiking trips.
Accompanied by a guide or at an organised event, hiking outings are an opportunity to discover the vineyards, the different facets of the Mont-Ventoux or the Luberon, and the fauna and flora of the Vaucluse region.
Practiced in groups, these outings are also a great shared experience.
In terms of athleticism, it requires adapting to the rhythm of others.
In short, the hikes taking place at the beginning of the new school year will be a good way to spend time exercising without too much effort!
