Take a walk along the green route
The route of the Voie Verte cycle route is designed to follow the course of the river through the heart of the Vézère valley. Most of the route will use existing rural roads, but it will also use former towpaths. These paths, almost invisible until now, accompanied the river which was a major communication route for the valley at the time.
By summer 2024, this cycle route will link four villages on a single 22-kilometre route Les Eyzies, Le Bugue, Limeuil and Saint-Chamassy.
