After a physically demanding start, you follow the paths along the wide ridges of the Grand Luberon and enjoy a panoramic view of the sea to the south and the Mont-Ventoux to the north.
You next reach the summit of the Grand Luberon, the Mourre Nègre, which has a height of 1125 m. An easier descent then leads you into the refreshing valley of the Aiguebrun, where you pass the foot of the Fort de Buoux, then climb up to the plateau of Claparèdes, with its cortege of lavender fields and borie villages.
The route takes you gently, through a beautiful landscape of bocages and orchards, to the beautiful village of Bonnieux.
