Various levels of difficulty

On the coast

In terms of difficulty, coastal hikes involve walking along the Coastal Trail, which can be rocky in certain sections, requiring sturdy footwear. You will also encounter sandy passages as you cross numerous beaches. The coastal hikes typically don’t involve significant elevation gain, but the duration can vary depending on the chosen sections. For example, a round trip between Cabasson and the beach of Argentière along the coast can take 6 to 7 hours.

In the massif

For more challenging hikes, you can explore routes like Hauts de Bormes or Trois Cols, which are longer, steeper, and reserved for experienced hikers. These hikes may require bringing food and water, and it’s important to consider the time of day to avoid hiking in the dark. Alternatively, there are easier hikes, such as those starting from the village to Notre-Dame de Constance or the Lac du Trapan at the entrance of Bormes. These hikes offer sublime landscapes and take approximately 2 hours to complete. Another option is the Forêt du Dom, which is an easier but longer hike lasting around 6 hours.

Remember to plan accordingly, stay hydrated, and bring suitable equipment for your chosen hike. Enjoy exploring the beautiful landscapes of Bormes les Mimosas!
