Whilst you might associate Rhone Alps purely with winter sports, in the summer, it is a walker's paradise. Beautiful scenery, flower meadows and snow capped peaks await you. If you're looking for a GR (Grande Randonnee) route, the GR5 crosses the Rhone Alps and offers walkers spectacular views. You can see glaciers and admire the lofty mountain peaks. There are at least 4300km of paths here to self guide or explore with a guide or even a donkey. To help you on your way, look out for beautiful hand crafted walking sticks.
