Ideal for families, this hike from Champagne-en-Valromey follows the course of the wild Arvière river to la Source du Groin, an impressive water resurgence of emerald color.
The walk also allows you to discover the Adoue site, its source, its fountain and its 17th century chapel, then the Vieu en Valromey church and its unique history.
