Gourmet Riverside Ramble


This foodie adventure is a feast for all the senses, a delicious stroll along the river in the idyllic They Valley, with gourmet food-tasting stands along the way!

Join us on Saturday August 21, 2021 for the 13th edition of this hugely popular event, the Goûts du Terroir au Fil de l’Eau!
Participants can choose between two circuits, depending on how far they want to walk or how many delicacies they want to sample. The ‘Petits Gourmands’ is an 8km hike with 6 tasting stops along the way. The ‘Grands Gourmands’ is a mighty 12km hike with no fewer than 8 gourmet stops to keep you motivated. This is the perfect way to experience the region’s natural beauty and culinary delights at the same time!
