Join Trails in France for an experience Wine and Trail runningthrough the Hérault department and the garrigue region!
In this magnificent setting, come and let yourself be enchanted by the discovery of the mythical Pic-Saint-Loup only 25 minutes from Montpellierthrough supervised trail rides as well as visit of the cellars and wine tasting of the region. Your nights will be spent in a magnificent typical inn, in a calm and relaxing environment in the heart of the vineyards.
In addition, thanks to a mountain guide specialized in trail,lover of the territory and promoter of this terroir, you will benefit from wise advice and suitable for all to have fun, learn more about the practice and progress at your own pace according to your desires and your goals.
This stay is open to all. It is nevertheless preferable to have already practised running to have the required level. No search for performance on these two days, you only enjoy the pleasures of running in the open air in an exceptional setting and moments of relaxation around a good glass (or several) of wine.
Who said that drinking wine and doing sports were not compatible ? Certainly not us!
You want to go with a group of people, but you don't all have the same level ? Are you looking for a more trail-running-oriented stay ? On the same dates and at the same location, we are also organizing another one with a level 3-4/4!
