Activities & leisure

On foot, on a mountain bike, on horseback, on skis or on snowshoes …Whether you’re active or more contemplative, the Albanais is the perfect place for your leisure. Numerous activities in the open air are available to you in privileged surroundings.

Mountain biking

As a centre recognised by the Fédération Française de Cyclisme (French cycling federation), the Albanais can now offer you 234 km of marked mountain bike circuits, a real playground for the beginner and the experienced mountain biker. You can go on bike rides supervised by qualified instructors all year round with the Maison du Vélo (bike centre). A map and a topo-guide are on sale in the Tourist Office.

Walking / hiking

On foot, the selection of marked trails will delight both family visitors and more energetic walkers. More than 20 routes are available in the region. Topo-guides and maps are on sale in the Tourist Office.

Fishing

Bounded by the rivers of the Fier and the Chéran, one of the wildest in France, the Albanais is the ideal place for all types of fishing. The lakes in Rumilly offer other types of fishing (carp, pike, rainbow trout etc.).

To sum up, the Albanais comprises:

  • 200 km of rivers and streams
  • 6 specific beats (Active Reserve and No-kill)
  • 2 lakes of 1 ha and 6 ha
  • 1 reservoir for fly fishing

On the Albanais’ two rivers, the Fier and the Chéran, you can enjoy white water activities or, quite simply, a relaxing moment with your feet in the water.
