Hiking along the St Guilhem Trail

On the ancient medieval way in Languedoc
14 days / 13 nights or 3 times 4 or 5 days

St Guilhem le Désert mounts

Some routes such as this itinerary deserve to be highlighted… The hikers cross major natural sites and pass by rich architectural heritage. This medieval pilgrimage route used to be taken by those who walked to the Gellone Abbaye in Saint Guilhem le Désert. This route was usually taken for sales exchange and by shepherds for migration of cattle between Langguedoc and Central Massif.

Between Aubrac and Saint Guilhem le Désert, there is a wide range of landscapes :

Aubrac with its prairies bordered by low stone walls, the Causses and their steppe like landscape, the Tarn and Jonte Gorges, the Aigoual Mountain, the Vis Gorges, the impressive Navacelles Cirque  and before finishing the trip overlooking St Guilhem from the ridge of the Seranne.

Walking along this trail is a wonderful experience to visit the natural and historical heritage and meet people.

Take a chance to take a deep breath far away from our buoyant lives.
