Our South of France Expeditions are our flagship runcations. The entire idea for Albera Expeditions were born here, on the trails we’ve run our whole lives. Now we have 4 expeditions from Morocco to Thailand. But here, in the South of France, is where it started.
This geographically diverse region has everything a runcationer could dream of. You’ll run along the impossibly blue Mediterranean Coast, traverse the highs and lows of the Pyrenees, tread through villages and cobbled street, soak your legs in the ice cold Mediterranean Sea, and fuel up with amazing French food and, of course, recover while sipping wine in rolling vineyards.
We have designed two unique South of France Runcations experiences. Read more to find which expedition is made for you.
