Wine and Fossil Hunting Walking Tour in the Hills of Luberon

Product ID: 43331

Hike the hills of the Luberon in search of fossils from 20 million years ago

Tour type: Group, Duration: 3 Hours

Hike the hills of the Luberon in search of fossils from 20 million years ago, when this part of Provence was underwater.
 
During this beautiful nature walk, you will learn to recognize fossils, identify wild herbs growing naturally in the countryside and drink homemade Pastis mixed with water from a natural spring, like a Provençal native straight out of a Peter Mayle novel.
 

After the hike, your hosts will take you to a beautiful fish pond in the countryside, where a table will be waiting for you with a traditional apéritif (rosé and red wine, homemade Provencal pâté, tapenade, mushrooms) and great stories.
 
Please note: Ancient fossils from the Luberon National Park cannot be taken from the site. Photos, however, are encouraged!
