Guidebook, way-marking and levels of difficulty

Nearly all our walking routes are way-marked and we provide a guidebook and maps, except in certain ‘overseas' countries where no maps exist. In such cases a written description is provided. It is useful to be able to read a map, however, even though our paths are way-marked and our explanation of routes enable you to follow the way very easily. The guidebooks produced by the FFRP (Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre) have the advantage of putting the written explanations and maps of routes together, and there is also an explanation of how to understand way-markings.


Advice : A good walker is also a good reader : read the explanations of the route carefully.
