Le Livradois-Forez en vélo à assistance électrique, de Thiers à Ambert

The stay

5-day/4-night stay on an electric-assisted bike in the Livradois-Forez Regional Natural Park to discover its ancestral know-how and its magnificent landscapes as far as the eye can see.

Want a change of scenery, welcome to Livradois-Forez, Auvergne on the rising sun side!
During your stay, go to the north of this territory which you will discover thanks to its famous cutlery know-how which for generations has made the history of the town of Thiers.
Then, off to the countryside with a gentle stroll discovering the built heritage of Sermentizon: the Pisé, then a visit to its famous castle.
The second part takes place on the crests of Forez, cradle of the Fourme d'Ambert. You need to gain altitude to discover its history and manufacturing secrets. But it is precisely in the Hautes-Chaumes that you discover the most beautiful landscapes of this territory that resembles the Scottish Highlands.
Unforgettable bike rides at an altitude of more than 1200 meters, where you are alone with the immensity of this nature. A finale to keep you breathless.
