slow tourism is all about the experience
Free yourself from the temptation to do and see as much as possible. Explore a new way of travelling.
Embrace slow mobility!
A hike on your own or with your loved ones offers something for everyone, be it food or nature with a guide. With its many hiking paths taking in hills, lakes and forests, Champagne is a prime destination for discovering gorgeous landscapes without rushing. Why not hire a mountain bike or an electric bike to explore the cycle paths of Champagne with your family? Or take your partner on a kayak or riverboat to discover Champagne’s lakes and rivers?
Getting away from your daily life also means choosing authentic, peaceful accommodation among the locals and deeply rooted in the heart of nature. From a charming and incredibly romantic B&B to unusual tiny houses and shepherd’s huts, rediscover the pleasure of a personalised cosy cocoon.
Admire the wonders of Champagne at your own pace
When someone says Champagne, incredible vineyards immediately spring to mind. Discover surprising sights nestled among the rows of sun-kissed grapes, such as the Verzenay lighthouse, and unusual villages, such as Oeuilly, which feels like it’s still in the 1900s.
For an invigorating breath of fresh air, head to the numerous natural sites that pepper the region. The largest artificial lake in Europe, Lac du Der invites you to enjoy an enchanting stroll, accompanied by the gentle lapping of the water and the song of thousands of birds who call the lake their home. For a complete immersion in wild fauna and flora, the Regional Nature Park of La Forêt d'Orient with its large lakes offers the ideal introduction for children. In Haute-Marne, the brand new Forêts National Park is a real treat, perfect for a walk in the shade of the leaf canopy.
