general information

A trip that’s a match for your passion!Following on from the success of the Mediterranean version, the first Diagonale, TrailRando have gone all out on this Atlantic version which crosses France in the other direction from Oberschaeffolsheim in Alsace to Ainhoa in the Basque country. It is a more demanding route as you cross certain steeper mountains: the Vosges, the Jura, the Monts de Mâconnais and Forez, Margeride, Aubrac, Pyrenees… As always the itinerary uses tracks open to traffic and a whole network of minor roads that criss-cross France, full of charm and little used. In these hidden areas, where each meeting is magic, the traveller can take advantage of the calm and perfectly preserved nature
Total Distance of the Trip: 1900 Km
