Unique to this trip is the time spent in the villages. Instead of rushing through, like so many treks, this program gives you an extra day in both Merak and Sakteng to get to know the people and their lifestyle.

France - The Loire - River of the Kings

The Loire, France's most fabled river, is our companion for this seven-day Walk through the historic garden of France.  Crossing undulating countryside and fertile riverbanks, we encounter a royal abbey, privately owned châteaux, vineyards and orchards, underground passageways and troglodyte caves. We dine on traditional local produce, visit a mushroom farm, sample the sparkling and still wines of Saumur, play locals at the ancient game of boules de fort and enjoy a delightful dinner on board a traditional barge on the river Loire as we watch the sun set.  In Chinon we discover a medieval fortress where Joan of Arc met Charles VII and we visit Fontevraud, the royal necropolis of the Plantagenet family: Henry II, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Richard the Lion-Heart, and the only mixed monk and nun community in France. Nearby we enjoy strolling through a charming medieval floral garden.
