There is a lot of action waiting for you in Champagne!

WALKING, HIKING & CYCLING

Let your feet do the walking... With over 5,000 kms of sign posted footpaths (circular walks and longdistance routes), serious walkers and hikers find their paradise in the region. You will be accompanied by nature's diverse landscapes ranging from great forests, deep valleys, open plains, vineyards, lakes and rivers. Champagne offers you 450 kms of dedicated cycling tracks. Choose from short cycle rides best enjoyed with family and friends, to longer circuits that take up to a day. 

LA CHAMPAGNE AND LES ARDENNES BY BIKE

The regional and departmental tourist boards have set up a quality charter with hotels, guest houses and camp sites in the region to identify places of accommodation that specifically cater for cyclists. Providers who have signed up to the scheme agree to abide by its criteria to manage and improve facilities for cyclists, such as providing a place to clean bikes and having a covered storage area. Some
establishments can also provide a packed lunch or a luggage transfer to the next hotel. Places where bicycles can be rented are also listed under the charter.

Further information about the charter and a full list of the current members can be found on the tourist board’s web site:
