Local hikes

“What if we went on a hike?”

Come and discover the fabulous scenery of the Morvan, the Avallonais, the Vézelien and the Serein.

We have several walks and hikes of different distances, for the pleasure of the senses as well as the soul (or should I say soles?)

Le Chemin Bleu

The educational trail “Le Chemin Bleu” in Avallon was created to raise awareness of wildlife conservation whilst bringing together our natural and historical heritage.  The Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan invites you on this 2.4km round trip to better understand the aquatic life of the Cousin valley.

randonnée St Jacques


Whether you start from the Basilica in Vézelay or from the Cistercian Abbey in Fontenay, this hike of approximately 84 km has it all.  Along paths that are not particularly challenging, you will discover our heritage and some incredible views  : Terre-Plaine landscapes with the Morvan hills in the background or the panoramic view of Vézelay before reaching Asquins.  This hike can done on foot, on horseback or by mountain bike, and will not fail to enthrall you.

Local hikes

Are you in search of hiking heaven?  Well you’ve come to the right place. Whether for a short hike, a day’s hike, or even several days worth of trails, you can choose the level of difficulty and your starting point.  Just come to one of our local information offices where you will find sixteen different trails that are clearly indicated along the way and have been tried and tested, and to top it all you can buy them as individual route maps!
