The Way of St James and the major trails
Running from Le Puy-en-Velay to Santiago de Compostela, the GR65 today is much more than a pilgrimage trail. It’s a real adventure. The universal heritage associated with this legendary trail is best appreciated on foot, but also by bike – and even by motor bike.
Velay is at the crossroads on several major hiking trails. It’s not unusual to come across pilgrims on the Way of St James, literary types following the Stevenson Trail, fans of the River Loire on the GR3 footpath, history buffs on the Régordane Trails and the pioneers on the new trail between Le Puy-en-Velay and La Chaise-Dieu… among others!
A hike on the big trails can also be enjoyed in a single day. Say goodbye to the Sunday stroll on a nameless route and start to see big!
Fitness and cycling fans will love the possibilities on offer in the Velay region. Mountain-bikers, road-cyclists or bicycle tourists will find the ideal playground in Velay.
