Around Flers

At the gateway to the Suisse Normande, come and enjoy 20 walking routes (including two through the centre of Flers) that are as varied in terms of topography and setting as they are rich in natural and architectural heritage, bearing witness to the area’s historical and industrial past (textiles in the north and mining in the south), as well as to the agricultural activity that is essential to the life of this area.

Each has its own difficulties but also its own special features. Some are suitable for a short stroll, whilst others involve a bit of effort. Whatever the walk, you’ll discover the natural environment that is still very much present. Come and enjoy the circuits, or take the long paths through a beautiful range of varied landscapes: meadows bordered by hedges, streams, forests, steep hills and sunken lanes. To help you choose, look out for the pictograms on the leaflets: they will tell you the theme of the routes, i.e. sporting, family, nature, heritage or “coup de cœur”.

A paper version of the “Le Pays de Flers” walking guide is available for €5 from Tourist Information Offices.
