We grouped the ways to actively explore the landsape:
|>||Walking||Light strolls around town or villages|
|>||Hiking||Longer trails away from the pavement and into the countryside|
|>||Long distance hiking||Hiking trails consisting of several section taking several days to complete|
|>||Cycling||Reasonably flat and paved surfaces provided by dedicated 'voie vertes' or cycling paths|
|>||Biking||All terrain trails often shared with hikers or horse riders|
Most of the walks are based on hand-out leaflets of the local tourism-office or government. The hiking (and biking) trails are public trails signposted and maintained by the departmental government. A number of private companies provide services on kayaking and biking.
