Hiking with a donkey - Between St Guilhem mountain, Vis river gorges and Larzac plateau

Chemin de St Jacques and trails of Larzac
5 days / 4 nights and 7 days / 6 nights

En direction de St Guilhem le désert

Located to the north of the Hérault department, the Seranne mountain is a real limestone barrier made up of chaos, rocky escarpments and narrow valleys. Characterized by a great diversity of landscapes, one discovers a Mediterranean type environment on its southern slope and the wide open spaces of the Larzac plateau in the North. Accompanied by a donkey, you leave with family or friends on the Way of St Jacques de Compostelle to discover and meet a backcountry rich in historical and natural heritage.
You will discover in particular the magnificent medieval village of St Guilhem le Désert, where you can visit the Abbey of Gelone (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Your hiking companion will carry your luggage and, at the end of the day, tired children. Undoubtedly, a great complicity will be born from these exchanges and will thus contribute to the success of your stay.
