Infos & Booking


I'd like to introduce you to Lozère, one of France's least populated departments, where the countryside is still very wild and unspoilt.

A change of scenery is guaranteed on this tour of the broom-scented Mont Lozère, through chestnut forests and century-old beech groves.

This hike is for walkers capable of a daily effort of around 5 to 8 hours.

The solitude and length of the route make it a long-distance hike.
