Hiking in Vendômois

Taking a breath of fresh air in Vendômois is easy thanks to hiking! Alone, with family or friends, explore our hiking trails to discover the local heritage.

Shoes on, backpack, map in your pocket (or GPX track on smartphones for the most connected!), let’s discover our circuits:

In the Perche: about forty routes will take you on a journey through the country of Roussard, this typical brown stone of Perche Vendômois. The Intercommunal Syndicate of Equestrian and Pedestrian Circuits of Perche has carefully designed circuits adapted to your practice with their character, their charm and their particularities.

In Haut Vendômois there are no less than 250 km of marked walks and hiking trails which are listed in a topo guide sold for €1 in the reception desks of the Tourist Offices.
The Perche & Haut Vendômois Intercommunal Tourist Office has been organizing the Perche & Haut Vendômois hike from Fréteval for many years. This event offers experienced walkers and families the opportunity to explore the lands of Perche & Haut Vendômois, rich in nature and local heritage on 11 routes ranging from 6 to 48km.

In the Loir Valley and Vendômois, there are approximately 200km of marked routes, most of which are classified in the Departmental Plan of Spaces, Sites and Routes. A joint work carried out with the Agglomeration Community of Vendôme Territories, the Loir-et-Cher Departmental Hiking Committee and the Departmental Council 41 to offer you quality circuits.

Find all our Vendôme circuits on IGN Rando – Vendôme Tourisme: walks, bike rides or horseback rides… You can download the sheets for free and print the circuits, export the GPX track to your GPS, synchronize the circuit on your mobile.
You will also find details of all the tourist points of interest for each hike: visits, sites, accommodation, catering, tastings, etc.

Sunday morning walks

The Loir-et-Cher Departmental Hiking Committee publishes a calendar every year in August in which it lists all the Sunday morning hikes organized by local associations.

Each club marks the 2-3 circuits set up for the morning. Hikers start hiking between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. at their own pace after paying the registration fee if they want to claim the snack break in the middle of the route.

A good way to discover hiking trails off the beaten track once a week.
