The start of an adventure : a passion for exploring the world on foot
- It all started in 2003 in Avignon, France. It was founded by a small team of passionate hikers and cyclists with years of experience in walking & cycling trips decided to create their own company. They shared a great knowledge of Mainland Portugal, Madeira, Azores, Cape Verde, Italy and so they created the first Intura tours based on what they really loved doing: walking & cycling tours!
- We began creating and running trips on behalf of major and prestigious international tour operators – and still do – acting as the local expert and ground agency.
- Today, all our trips are 100% created and run by our team: no intermediaries.
- 15 years on, Intura remains the same: a small company with a family-atmosphere, where we do everything ourselves from A-Z.
- Today, we still have the same enthusiasm as in our early days with a team of passionate and experienced experts.
Expansion to self-guided trips
- Over the years the company grew into a real success and decided to branch out and add self-guided walking and cycling tours to its catalogue!
Creation of Provence walking and cycling holidays in France, our homeland !
- Recognising the potential of the local region with its magnificent perched villages, vineyards and lavender fields, Provence walking and cycling tours seemed the obvious choice for company expansion and reaching out to a wider, international clientele. Made famous by people such as Van Gogh, who chose to set up home for a while in Arles and St Rémy and the author Peter Mayle who writes with such enthousiam and beauty about the villages of the Lubéron; Oppède le Vieux, Bonnieux, Les Baux de Provence... that the Intura guides were spoilt for choice!
- As a result, the Provence hiking trails range in diversity and difficulty allowing future clients to choose to meander through villages and wine estate to a more challenging cycling holiday in France with the Alpilles mountains and the infamous Mont Ventoux.
