Le Sentier Victor

  • Sentier victor

100 km of itinerant excursions in the Heart of Beaujolais

The Sentier Victor covers more particularly the Beaujolais Rouge, meandering through the vineyards.

Between vine stocks, heaths and forests, nature lovers will find their happiness on these marked trails stopping in 12 aptly named villages: Beaujeu, Lantignié, Régnié-Durette, Villié-Morgon, Chiroubles, Fleurie, Chénas, Juliénas, Jullié, Emeringes, Vauxrenard and Avenas. 3 variants allow you to take only part of the entire route.

The signposting is easily recognizable with the logo of the playful and friendly little character of Victor. Take a good look at the direction where Victor directs his gaze, he tells you the way to follow...

Variants of the Sentier Victor...

On the Sentier Victor, 3 variants were drawn, thus allowing to "cut" the entire route, to reduce the distances and to make loops of various mileage.
