Don’t just stuff your face silly in Provence, but actually learn from a Michelin-starred chef how to make each dish and bring the deliciousness back home with you. As part of Backroad’s six-day Provence Active Gourmet Walking Trip, guests will get a crash course in making classic Provençal plates and tasting local favorite wines, including Côtes du Luberon. In between meals, walk off calories—anywhere from two to eight miles depending on your fitness level—to make room for your next feast. Visit quaint perched villages, meander through markets (be sure to sample the goat cheese and olives), duck into 12th century churches and cathedrals, and take a stroll with resident van Gogh expert, Marie-Charlotte Bouton.
