HIKING TRAILS FRANCE, the Morvan Burgundy

A six day walk in the National Park "the Morvan"

Getting there: The National Park of Morvan ( Parc Régional du Morvan) , the heart of Burgundy, is easy to get in by car. You will find here a nice and imposing landscape, friendly, hilling and beautiful perspectives. A rich flora, like anemones and orchids. Or the fauna: foxes, deer and martens.
And a lot of way-marked routes, including Grande Randonnées( GR13). Or le Tour du Morvan (220 km.).
Accommodation: Plenty: hotels, pensions, Gites d’étappe, chambre d’hôtes, Gites ruraux, at the farm, at a castle, whatever you want.
Maps: You easy can buy maps in the cities and villages in the Park. We used IGN 2825 OT and IGN 2723 ET, Carte Randonnée. The trails are well marked.
