VTT-FFC of the Lac du Der in Champagne

The mountain biking trail in the Pays du Lac du Der invites you on an unusual journey on the edge of the sea which lies inside 77km of coastline, situated in a verdant setting.

Take the time to discover the charm of the half-timbered churches and observe nature all around you. This will give you the opportunity to see deer, falcons, kestrels, wild cats and even thousands of grey cranes.
