Hiking

The Périgord is the ideal place for a hiking excursion. For nearly 400,000 years, it has

seen generations of hunters, hikers and pilgrims pass...

For your encounter with nature, history, culture, and rural and built heritage, the

Périgord provides 1,130 kilometres of long-distance footpaths (GR) and 7,000 kilometres

of short-distance footpaths (PDIPR). On the Compostella route, 200 kilometres of the

GR 654, marked in white and red, cross the Dordogne from north to south, through the

towns of La Coquille, Thiviers, Sorges, Périgueux, Bergerac and Monbazillac.

To find your way, the Comité départemental du Tourisme de la Dordogne publishes the

collection

Sentiers du Pérgord,

featuring 41 map-guides to reveal the Périgord as seen on

foot. These pedestrian maps were designed for hikers as well as horseback riders and

all-terrain bike riders. They indicate the networks for all types of circuits, from loop

walks to long-distance trails.
