I take you to Mandelieu-La Napoule, the mimosa capital, for a fragrant hike !

Between December and March, the largest mimosa forest in Europe is decked out in its most beautiful shades of yellow, contrasting with the blue of the sky : a fantastic sight for the eyes as well as for the nose.

Take advantage of the moment and let yourself be guided along the little-known paths to discover this flower, so rare and ephemeral...

We leave for a hike of about 6km, between the Estérel massif and the Tanneron.

Depending on the period and the route, you may be able to make a beautiful bouquet of flowers (mimosa harvesting is regulated).

You missed the mimosa period ? Come and join me for a hike in the Estérel Hill or the Pays de Fayence, we will discover and taste some local plants.

Wonderful Hike in the Mimosa Forest

Commenté le 21/02/2024

Maddy provided a wonderful hike in the Mimosa Forest during the peak blooming season. Even before our activity, she was very flexible as our plans changed and we requested to switch our dates - this was accommodated with kindness and no questions. On the hike, she was able to provide information in both French and English for the mixed group. It was clear that she loved the area and was knowledgeable about the history and botanical details of the terrain. We loved meeting her and sharing a few hours together. It was beautiful, peaceful, and memorable! I would (and already have!) recommend this activity to anyone who is visiting the area.

One of unforgettable experiences

Commenté le 07/03/2023

Our experience was absolutely amazing. I didn't even hope to see so many mimosa trees - it was really fascinating! The hiking itself was pleasant and easy, a kind of great walk through the forest. Special thanks for our support during the journey and help to get to the airport (we had a flight right after the hike, so it was valuable)
