Walking/Cross-Country Cycle Trails (Randonnées) are abundant in the area, and there are many accessible only a few minutes from La Blanquette. There are some national GR trails (Grande Randonnée) such as the GR6 and GR64A within a short walk or cycle which have some amazing sights (such as the castle above in Carlux, dating from the 1200s, right on the GR6 trail). Also there are some lesser known trails and circuits (‘boucles’) in the Dordogne valley which provide many beautiful surprises along the way.

The trails are very well signed in the area, local trails with yellow or green capped posts and signs or the national GR routes with the red and white waymarkers. This makes them very easy to follow, even without a map (although one is recommended!)

We can advise on some of the best walking/off-road cycling/mountain biking trails and provide pocket sized trail maps and recommendations on some of our favourites.

There are of course our own short woodland walks exploring the old stone dwellings, flora and fauna of La Blanquette but we also can help with guidance on other great walking and cross-country bike trails of only a few kilometres through to longer expeditions covering many miles of scenery.
