Sunrise and sunset hiking tours
from the summit of Mont Sainte-Victoire
On the northern side of Mont Sainte-Victoire, 15 miles from Aix-en-Provence, on a short trail near the village of Vauvenargues, you can reach the crest of the mountain within an hour. A few minutes later, you will be standing on the Pic des Mouches, top of the mountain, that offers a 360-degree panoramic view. Around sunrise, emotion is at its peak. The sky colours are different but very beautiful too, in the last two hours of the day, as the sun sets.
Walking time : 2.5 hours (Out-and-back)
