The Var on the ground floor
In the Var, all the tracks provide instant happiness in front of the landscapes constantly renewed by the seasons, from the hinterland to the coast.
The Littoral trail, a must for hiking. This former customs route is a great compromise between a sports walk and short breaks along the beach. More than 200 km are arranged along the coasts of the continent and islands to enjoy the pleasures of walking with eyes towards the sea. Beware, nature remains the master of the place, and despite the attention of the city council the wind and the water can sometimes damage some sections. Green patrols walk around the trail 6 days a week to maintain, monitor and inform walkers. Signs are placed to inform the visitors, and all the information is available in the local tourist offices.

Discover the summits of the Esterel, wine safari in the vineyards, stroll in the heart of the Var forest or family cycling in the heart of Provence Verte. A thousand ways to discover the Var countryside at your own pace, all year round.
