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
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.Consult the descriptions of all the Hikes... Theme itineraries...
