Due to the great risk of forest fires during the summer months, new regulations came into force during the spring of 2013 making it more difficult to plan for summer hiking.
The new regulations makes all areas within Bouche du Rhone and Vaucluse subject for immediate closure depending on conditions like heat and strong winds etc. On the morning of the hike, you therefore need to call 0811 201313 (Bouche du Rhone) or 0811 208484 (Vaucluse) for exact information for the area you plan to walk in during the period 1st July till 15th September. Unless the conditions are very difficult, however, you are allowed morning hikes in most areas (till 11 am).
