Walking in the land of mountains and lakes

The Vosges Mountains offer you masses of walking opportunities.  Throughout the year Mother Nature offers the walkers something special.  There are marked trails everywhere that take you through a varied landscape of forests and lakes, splashing streams, green mountain valleys, and breathtaking views.

In the Vosges there is something on offer for everyone! For the hiking fanatics there are the Grand Randonée trails. But there are also lots of short leisurely strolls for the whole family or trails that entail strenuous climbs for the real enthusiasts.


Here at La Vieille Colonie you will find yourself at the right place as walkers.  From the gîte you are able to walk straight into the forest!  We have a variety of maps and trail maps available for you to look in or borrow.  We will be delighted to help you plan your route or give you tips from our own walking experiences.
