cross border trek France and Italy

From 5 days to 2 weeks, get out into the wild and breathe some air...

Spacebetween define "trekking" as trail holidays, staying in a new and exciting venue every evening.

Our trekking holidays are guided by an international mountain leader, and include our very own fantastic 14 day Gran Paradiso tour and our 9 or 13 day Traverse of the Mercantour National Park. Offering exceptional and competitive value for money.

Also, trips over the Alpes-Maritimes divide between France and Italy, and mini tours around the Mercantour's most outstanding peaks.
