The Tour des Monts d'Aubrac is a nice and easy hike, lasting about a week, without excessive altitude differences, between 900 and 1,300m.
Created by an association, ADECA, it had from its earliest days involved farmers who open their premises to tourism. Since then, the accommodations offer has grown with local cottages and inns, but also hotels and guest rooms.
Pleasant in spring when the vegetation explodes with an immense variety of flowers, and in autumn when the colours are beyond compare, this hike is also easy in the summer because the nights are always cool and compensate for the summer heat.
While nature is the region’s main attraction, the trail also allows you to discover a small and abundant rural heritage with its crossroads, traditional farms, bread ovens, burons (stone cabins) or mills. Not to mention Laguiole with its forge and dairy, the Romanesque churches of Saint Urcize, Aumont-Aubrac and Nasbinals, and the Aubrac dômerie (monastery).
This hike can be combined with a section of the GR 65 Santiago de Compostela on one of its most emblematic segments, Aumont-Aubrac/Saint Chély d'Aubrac.
