Welcome to Power Hiking Paris, registered law 1901 non profit Hiking Organisation, member of the French Hiking Federation (FFRP*) and a beneficiary of a Tourism Licence**.
Established from scratch in 2015, we proudly serve the Hiking Community ever since.
We are a friendly group of international hikers living in the Paris area. We use English as our official communication language. We walk an average of 22-30km, every WE, in Ile de France at a brisk pace (5 to 7 km/h).
Our walks are rated as below :
- Newcomers (5-5.5 km/h)
- Regular (5.5 - 6.5 km/h)
- Challenging (6 - 7 km/h)
You need to be fit enough if you want to take part (otherwise you might not be able to keep up). BEAR IN MIND THAT POWER HIKING IS A WORKOUT ACTIVITY (NOT SIGHTSEEING) AND THEREFORE NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE.
All our hikes are led by trained and volunteers international hike leaders (we don't get paid). We are not professionals, we don't do it for a living, but we try to organise our activities as good as professionals (with a legal structure, insurance policy, training ...).
We are committed to our members so we are not all about blathering on quality of our activities and doing very little but we actually walk the talk.
Since our first day of operation in 2015, we have organised 600+ events comprising Day hikes (several hikes available each WE), WE aways and Hiking Adventures in other France's neighbourhood (Queyras July'17, Vanoise July'19, Pyrenees Sept'19, Jura Jan'20) or abroad (Scotland July '16, Vietnam November' 16, Portugal May '17, Bulgaria August' 17, Sri Lanka November '17, Madeira March'18, Madagascar November' 18, Bulgaria Snowshoeing March'19, Ireland July'19, Vietnam Sept'19) .
Thousand of hikers have walked and traveled with us, with a high level of satisfaction. Proof is they are coming back over and over again :-) .... No wonder why Power Hiking Paris has become, over time, the most successful, the most active Hiking Group on Meetup in the Paris Region.
Last but not least, this community is also about building bonds of friendship between the members. Respectfulness, Courteousness and Friendliness are our values.
