Combining GR97 with some other trails - GR4, GR9, GR6, GR653 - allows you to go round Mont Luberon (1256 m) in the Provence. To enjoy the pretty countryside in full, set apart ten days. Drought and hard winds make the area vulnerable to forest fires, forcing authorities to close large areas and trails. It's best to plan your hike before july.
