Whether trekking or just out for a day’s walk, the Aveyron is a land for walking par excellence, ideal for discovering its countryside.
Not surprising that the Aveyron is the top département for walking in France.
There are more than 900km of long distance Grande Randonnée footpaths and a network of 4000km of shorter walks, which enable families to fully benefit from these great open spaces.
Walkers will always find something new here, from the most famous such as the Chemin de Saint Jacques de Compostelle GR65 to the most exclusive ones such as the Tour du Larzac Templier GR71. Plateaux, gorges, valleys, cliffs and mountains, but also sources, streams, waterfalls and lakes, there is something for everyone. From crossing the Aubrac plateaux to the corniches of the Tarn, from the Lévézou lakes to the Rougiers of Marcillac or Camarès, not forgetting the great cultural itineraries, the Aveyron appears as a concentration of discoveries that never cease to amaze walkers.
