Culture and heritage
Burgundy invites you to come and explore a remarkable historic heritage, where each church and château is even more elegant than the last. Not-to-mention the museums and other places to visit that showcase the many treasures of the region.
Walks and bike rides
For a long time, Burgundy has been a favourite destination for walkers and hoards of pilgrims on their way from Vézelay to Nevers. Today, there are 6,000 km of trails, from short walking tours, to the long "Grande Randonnée" (GR) trails. By bicycle, the Tour of Burgundy by bike is also a great way to explore the region along the 800 km of cycle paths. There are also other routes to try out: the Voie Bleue cycle route, the Greenway cycle route from Chalon-sur-Saône to Mâcon, among others.
Theme parks, treasure hunts in a château, treetop adventure courses, etc. For your children, opt for something original and to enjoy the great outdoors at affordable prices!
There are countless ways to enjoy the water in Burgundy. There is, of course, a simple dip in the waters to cool off when it's hot. But you can also choose to enjoy the waters in a canoe, on a sailing boat or even on a jet ski if you're feeling more adventurous.
Golf courses to improve your swing, treetop adventure courses to practise walking the tightrope, fishing areas to try and lure the fish out of the water... In Burgundy, there are countless outdoor activities available in the lush-green environment! And between two leisure activities, why not head to one of the many picnic areas and treat yourselves to a delicious meal.
