The GR5: Trekking from the Alps to the Mediterranean with 10Adventures founder Richard

October 4, 2021

On this episode, 10Adventures founder, Richard Campbell swaps seats and puts on his guest hat for an incredible episode highlighting his favourite trekking route of all time, France's GR5.

Richard shares how we went from putting in 70 hour work weeks to setting off on this mesmerizing trek with his newlywed wife to explore 750km of epic French alpine scenery. Having previously trekked in the French Alps, this area had long held a special place in his heart, but setting out for 5 weeks to explore it anew with his wife in around 36 days was truly remarkable.

The French section of the GR5 starts in Thonon-les-Baines and goes through some of the most incredible parts of the French Alps, before ending Nice, on the Mediterranean. 

Tune into this episode and find yourself whisked away to the French Alps and it’s cozy mountain refuges, charming mountain villages, and it’s endless peaks and valleys.
