The Most Beautiful hiking routes in Vaucluse
3000 km of signposted pathways
At the end of a path, a hilltop village, red earth surrounded by cypress trees, wild chamois, fertile plains that smell of Provence… The GR 4 (a long-distance walking route as part of the French Grande Randonnée network) passes through the department from the Rhône Valley to the east of Mont Ventoux while the GR 9 crosses from north to south, from the Ventoux to the Luberon.
For day-long hikes, the department benefits from a number of loops that pass along the lavender fields, through the Rhône Valley vineyards and orchards at the foot of Mont Ventoux, and through some of the Luberon’s incredible ochre landscapes.
