The Vézère valley is a true paradise for hikers. With more than 675 km of hiking trails and rich history you will have plenty to explore in this beautiful landscape. There are many wonderful nooks and crannies to explore such as shelters used by cavemen that are hidden amongst the rocks along the trails.
You only need to cross the street to walk into the forest of Campagne. With an area of 317 hectares and a wealth of flora and fauna, it is something you cannot miss. The large forest consists of two large curves (3 and 6 km), where you will find signs that indicate the types of fauna that can be found in the area. In the Campagne forest you can find rare and protected animal and plant species such as the peregrine falcon, the short-toed eagle, wild orchids and more. On this route, you can also find many caves and ancient medieval living environments.
During the high season, we also organize guided walks in the woods that allow you to explore the beautiful natural environment.
