Traveling hikes

Tour de Pays

The Tour of Pays de Salers is a touring hike, divided into three loops of a hundred kilometers each, to go in four or five stages.

Marked in red and green, it allows to travel throughout our territory, combining both hiking and heritage discovery, through themes such as transhumance, Romanesque art or architecture.

For each of the loops, a guidebook is available in the reception points of the tourist office of the Pays de Salers and at the Maison de la Salers at a unit price of € 8.
The hiking sheets are also downloadable individually and for free on this page (see below).
