The Via Fluvia is a cycle route that connects two magnificent rivers that never cross, namely the Loire and the Rhône.

It's a concentrated route – 120 km, in the end – but with great ambition: for these sumptuous landscapes of volcanoes, forests, mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes will serve as an ecological introduction, with sport and Zen at the same time, for the discovery of our regions. By following the Via Fluvia, everyone will be able to go at their own pace to find nature but also to meet the men and women, producers, artisans, and creators who live there. More than just a bunch of experiences, the Via Fluvia is an open-air museum! We're carried from one universe to another!

The Via Fluvia crosses the departments of Haute-Loire, Loire & Ardèche, three territories with unique landscapes and environments… a chance to discover different universes between nature, history, heritage and micro-adventure through this new route between green trail and cycling route!

Replenish your energy and travel differently along this route, take the time to stop and listen to the singing birds, observe every little bit of the heritage and landscapes that surround you.
