Because every day is different, and our form also varies, so we adapt our hikes according to our desires. One day, at the water's edge, another around Puy-en-Velay or not far from Mont Mézenc and then why not the 2-hour Sunday walk to do with the family. And that's good, there are 365 days in the year!

How to make our children walk

A family looks at the map of an easy hike in Haute-Loire, Auvergne

Difficult to make our pitchounes work? We have the solution! Low-altitude hikes for a maximum duration of 2 hours. The interpretation trails will satisfy the “Why” and the “How” of our budding curious. They'll play Sherlock Holmes as they investigate orienteering routes with pinch clips and compasses. Caresses and tickles guaranteed when the animal becomes their hiking companion, astride a donkey or towed by the adorable Husky dogs.

Fun hikes with animals or in search of treasures
