3000 KM OF MAINTAINED AND SIGNPOSTED FOOTPATHS
A MULTITUDE OF RIDING CENTRES
Each of these routes is named after a geographical or historical feature, sometimes a legend of the department. For optimal safety, they follow cycle tracks or roads with little passing traffic.
For each of the 32 tourist cycle routes, special signposting has been set up, showing the name of the circuit and the direction to follow. At each departure point, a signpost tells the cyclist about the difficulty of the route and the distance, and gives safety advice…
With more than 3000 km of well-kept, signposted footpaths, Pas-de-Calais offers you a fantastic choice of walks and rambles.
While discovering the heritage and natural sites of the department, the walker will cross marshes, rivers, gardens, canals, hills and dunes, from the Opal Coast to the Sensée river passing through the Boulonnais, the Audomarois and the Artois areas.
From romantic forest rides to wild canters along the beach, Pas-de-Calais has it all. There is a choice of routes along bridle-paths adapted to every pace. The variety of tracks means that everyone is able to select one that matches their level and their tempo!
One sure way to combine walking with talking is to stop off at a sociable ramblers’ inn (Estaminets de Randonnée). Set up by the Parc Naturel Régional (National Parks), the ramblers’ inns are country pubs, located close to the footpaths, offering traditional games, services, tourist information and simple country food.
