We have enjoyed every walk

Do you like hiking? The regional parc du Haut Languedoc has tremendous scenic hiking areas. There are one day walks and longer routes of several days.

There are many types of different hiking routes available. To get an impression about hiking in and around camping Domaine LaCanal here's a small piece from a message from one of our guests;

 "As we have promised, we will send you pictures of our hikes near your campsite. We have done all routes according to those routes on that paper that we got of you and followed the signs. It were all beautiful walks. Sometimes it was a lovely landscape with sheep and rolling fields, then again we walked through a forest and then to be treated on a beautiful view over the Lake. If the walks up claimed it was, well, autumn but very beautiful. The landscape was rougher. There was hey, rocks and magnificent views over the valleys. Again and again we were curious about what is now came again. The small villages in the distance were the villages where you ran through it later. We have enjoyed every walk. October-Agnes and Jaco."
