For the moment, on the Geneva trail, we only provide our transport in the Haute-Loire region, from Les Sétoux to Le Puy-en-Velay
Leaving Geneva, the pilgrims trace their route through a hilly landscape of groves offering views of the snow-covered peaks of the Jura.
The Rhône river then presents its hillsides covered with vineyards and its drained marshes cultivated with poplars. The climate is so temperate that we refer to the area as “petite provence de la Savoie”.
After the green hills of the Bas-Dauphiné where the horizon is steeped in mountainous peaks, the walker reaches the foothills of the Pilat massif. Then, orchards and vineyards give way to plateaus and pastures.
While we are sinking into Haute-Loire, the volcanic imprint gradually takes possession of the landscape, large basalt organs or volcanic peaks. All around, the forest surrounds the hiker with its dense and welcoming coat.
The arrival on Le-Puy-en-Velay gives a foretaste of the Galician final goal, because here too one of the last stages is called “Montjoie”.
