About us

Elodie, nature guide and urban storyteller

Elodie is the founder of Reisetrip. Nature walk leader and tour guide, she has a mas­ter’s degree in for­eign lan­guages and I is enti­tled to work as a tour guide since 2020 where she got her licence.

Orig­i­nal­ly from the Nice, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, she spent part of her life between Tunisia, France and Switzer­land, and she’s trav­elled a lot, vis­it­ing over 30 coun­tries. She inher­it­ed her love of nature and sail­ing from her father, for­mer mem­ber of the French Alpine Club (CAF) and a ama­teur scu­ba div­er.

After a peri­od in Paris work­ing in audio­vi­su­al trans­la­tion, she became a tour leader between 2016 and 2018.

She prac­tis­es well-being dis­ci­plines with her moth­er intro­duc­ing her to the tech­niques and today she’s con­vinced of their ben­e­fits. She needs to be immersed in nature, take the time to breath in the sur­round­ings and let her­self be trans­port­ed. She wants to share this pas­sion and raise aware­ness among peo­ple about the knowl­edge and ben­e­fits of plants and yoga for the body and mind.

She’s also com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing the envi­ron­ment, and her aim is to pro­vide infor­ma­tion in favour of organ­ic farm­ing and the work of farm­ers and inform­ing the pub­lic of for­mer indus­tri­al sites that are being rede­vel­oped.

The ReiseTrip Tours concept

ReiseTrip Tours is a jux­ta­po­si­tion of the Ger­man word “reisen” = “jour­ney” and the Eng­lish word “trip”.

The con­cept ? To organ­ise immer­sive excur­sions and walks in Provence com­bin­ing cul­ture, nature and well-being, thanks to exclu­sive part­ner­ships.

Elodie works togeth­er with crafts­men, farm­ers, skip­pers and yoga instruc­tors.

Each tour is avail­able in four lan­guages: Ger­man, Eng­lish, French, Ital­ian and Span­ish.

ReiseTrip Tours is com­mit­ted to sus­tain­able, local and respon­si­ble tourism, focused on the well-being of par­tic­i­pants.
Expe­ri­ence med­i­ta­tive walks on coastal paths, hike in the foot­steps of Cézanne in the hills of Provence, dis­cov­er organ­ic farm­ing in Haute-Provence, learn to recog­nise wild plants on botan­i­cal walks, redis­cov­er the nat­ur­al her­itage of the sub­urbs, and be swept away by sto­ry­telling on a sail­boat as you soak up the myths and leg­ends of Provence.

Get to know our region’s nat­ur­al and cul­tur­al her­itage, learn about its ecosys­tems while you recon­nect with your sens­es.
