One or two suggestions?
- Envie de vous faufiler au cœur de la vie sauvage ?
Empruntez les 3 itinéraires (110, 105 et 60 km) de la « Route de la Dombes », le « pays aux mille étangs ». Un circuit très nature et tradition, sur une route touristique labélisée Site remarquable du goût. Profitez-en pour déguster les spécialités inspirées par le poisson-roi de ce territoire : rillettes de carpes, carpe fumée, filet de Carpe à l'oseille, filet de carpe au beurre rouge et autre cervelas de carpe sauce à l'oseille !
- Want to wind your way around the heart of the wildlife?
Take 3 itineraries (110,105 and 60kms) of the “route de la Dombes”, the “land of a thousand lakes”. A circuit full of nature and tradition, on a tourist route labeled as a notable area for taste. Make the most of it by tasting the specialties inspired by the king of fish of the area: potted carp , smoked carp, fillet of carp with sorrel, fillet of carp with red wine butter and carp sausage with sorrel sauce!
- Interested in unusual history?
Between Montmerle-sur-Saône and Ars-sur-Formans, take the ‘Chemin du Curé d’Ars’ and follow in the footsteps of a parish priest, honored by the Catholic church, who Pope Pie XI chose as “patron saint of all parish priests”. An out-of-the-ordinary route, with several possible detours: park (and lake) Cibeins, Chateâu de Fléchères, the Roman chapel at Amareins
Ready for a little adventure at the entrance to the campsite?
Go just a few meters to the tow path along the Saône, and there you have 14kms of protected pathway along the riverside. Unless of course, you prefer the thrills of a more physical route going as far as Lyon, and there, the possibility of joining …. the 815kms of the ViaRhôna!
Now, it’s up to you!
At the campsite reception there are all the maps available for these routes, as well as bike rental. And for alternatives, the Tourist Office has many more on offer. For example, the tourist Office at Trévoux proposes ‘high tech’ routes “Water and Man” or, only 2.6km long, a guided tour into the heart of “the land of art and history”.
