Lake District, England

The Lake District hills offer a constant 360-degree view on a unique landscape, shaped by 500 million years of geological processes. For this journey we’ve selected the cream of the crop: some beautiful U-shaped valleys that we reach through sustained ascents and exhilarating descents, checking off stunning summits on the way. Without a doubt, these are real mountains, and the Atlantic Coast being a stone’s throw away, you can expect a true adventure! One must not be afraid of a bit of rain or wind, although when the sun comes out and casts shadows on the surrounding hills, magic happens. As the day comes to an end, enjoy your endorphine kick or local cask ale at a 300-year old pub, and watch lambs jumping around at sunset.

Peneda-Gerês, Portugal

The only national park in Portugal is named after two massifs (Peneda and Gerês) that meet in the far north of the country. This unique landscape is part of UNESCO’s World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Lush forests, refreshing waterfalls, wild horses, and granite tops punctuate our journey in these incomparable mountains where time seems to stand still. Our circuit is dotted with several ruins – castles, monasteries, and shrines – that have blended with the landscape for centuries. Local hospitality is unmatched, while dishes that never cease to appear on the table at night are for sure the secret of optimal recovery! Our local guide, ultrarunner Carlos Sá, is a well-known athlete in Portugal and internationally. This is your chance to discover a country and its history with one of its best ambassadors.

Dalmatia, Croatia - Road trip

Croatia is known for its endless string of islands (over 1,100!) along the Adriatic Coast. On a road trip and thanks to Croatia’s excellent ferry network, we explore some of the prettiest : Brač, Hvar, and Korčula. We also stop by the Pelješac peninsula, wine paradise, and the area of Omis, a must for outdoor enthusiasts. Our driver takes us wherever we want to run and greets us at the other end of the trail with food and drinks. During leisure time, feel free to swim in the Adriatic, nap in the shade or visit the many historical sites that we encounter on route. In the evening, explore amazing cities before sitting down to sample a black risotto and a glass (or two) of local Malvazija. After all, you’re on vacation…

Sierra Norte de Oaxaca, Mexico

First, discover the amazing Oaxaca City and its rich colonial heritage. Then, get carried away by the stunning scenery and clean air of Sierra Norte de Oaxaca, a splendid massif covered with mature forests that are remarquably well-preserved. More than a century ago, eight native communities that live in the area created a system of “pueblos mancomunados” (literally: “joint villages”). This unique socioeconomic model, in which private property does not exist, promotes sustainable management of natural resources and the protection of ancestral traditions. The paths linking these high-perched villages are our playground and we are welcomed with open arms by these people, who participate to our expedition in various ways. Trail running as an excuse for going on an adventure is exactly that!

Around Mont-Blanc: France, Italy, Switzerland

There is no doubt that UTMB is the most popular trail running race. The 2017 edition brought together the greatest athletes of our time and resulted in the victory of François D’Haene, ahead of Kilian Jornet, second. This mythical circuit is however not the privilege of elite runners. For more than a century, hikers have walked the paths that surround Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe. In this tour, we give you the opportunity to run these trails – although we might walk on a few long climbs and technical sections. As we move from France to Italy, and from Italy to Switzerland, you will discover the culture and gastronomy of each region, animated by this same love of the mountain.
