Walks and mountain-biking

The Lot département is full of walking and mountain-biking trails. The famous “St James’ Way” (the GR 65 trail) goes through Cahors. You will cross the Quercy Blanc (“White Quercy” area, named after the colour of the rocks and soil) in the “Causses du Quercy” Regional Park. You will admire magnificent contrasting landscapes, with arid plateaux and dry grasslands, and fertile valleys where vines and cereal crops grow.

During your walks, you will certainly come across our famous dry stone cazelles or gariottes which served as shelters for shepherds and farmers in days gone by (and sometimes pilgrims).

You can also go horse-riding in one of the many clubs and riding centres around the area, and even cross the rivers on horse-back.

You can find out about the many other trails and routes and the different levels of difficulty at the campsite Reception.

Another circuit not to be missed

the Cahors wine route (Route des vins de Cahors). Of course, you must stop in at the vineyards to taste the famous “black wine” of Cahors, meet the local wine-producers and learn about the history of our wines. The wines from the valleys and the wines from the limestone plateaux have very different characteristics.
