Morning: Via Francigena trail and biodiversity. A 9.2 km hike from the town centre along part of the famous pilgrimage route linking Canterbury to Rome. By downloading the resource flyer available on the Grandes Heures Nature app, you can find out more about the flora and fauna along the route. It's a great way to recharge your batteries in the heart of nature and reconnect with the living world.
Other routes listed on the GHN application also offer other walks with integrated flyers on the natural and cultural heritage:
- Sentier des Grand Prés at Pugey, 9.5km and 290m ascent
- Sentier du Patrimoine (Heritage Trail) at Deluz, 3.5km and 100m ascent
- Notre Dame Du Mont trail in Thoraise, 5.4km and 180m ascent
Afternoon: Rowing with awareness, learning with fun
Hire a canoe, kayak or paddle from the WOKA water sports centre in Avanne-Aveney, and you'll be on your way to a great river trip in an unspoilt natural setting. The only one of its kind in Franche-Comté, the Eco Pagayeur course gives you the chance to navigate in complete safety along natural waterways and discover the flora and fauna that lurk there. You can also hire an audio guide to help you learn more about the local heritage.
Open to all, families and children aged 5 and over, this 8km route offers an exceptional spectacle for a 2 to 3-hour walk, a route that requires no particular physical or aquatic skills. All this while respecting the natural environment!
