The Grande Randonnée GR2013
...and now for something completely new

A new long-distance walking trail opens in Provence in March, mapped by a group of local artists, writers and architects. The Grande Randonnée GR2013 is designed to help celebrate Marseille's period as European Capital of Culture.

Described as the 'first metropolitan and artistic hiking trail', the GR2013 is designed to highlight the contrast between city and country, land and sea, past, present and future.

As well as taking walkers through the stunning Provençal countryside and its many highlights, it will pass through lesser-known places and some of the region's striking urban and commercial landmarks.

The 224-mile trail, shaped as a figure of eight, should take around 15 days in total to walk.
