From village to village, the tour of the Mézenc-Gerbier-de-Jonc massif will reveal to the hiker vast plateaus contrasting with rugged valleys, and exceptional landscapes that offer a panoramic view of the Alps on clear days.

This massif of ancient volcanoes, where water can be found everywhere, shelters the famous Gerbier-de-Jonc at the foot of which the Loire river finds its source.

In this still preserved setting, you’ll enjoy the diverse flora of these high plateaus.

At the bend of a path, a traditional farm with a lauze (slate), Scotch broom or rye straw roof will open its doors to you for a visit to the heart of the life of the inhabitants of yesteryear: an invitation to discover all the richness of local traditions.
