A red kite soars elegantly in the sky.
At the edge of the forest - there, in the grass - two deer.
Take a breath, feel. Out here you are free.

15 stages or three loops await you on a total of 140 kilometers of circuit: full of freedom, longing and adventure.

You can also do an entire circuit in one go with 140 km and 2,750 metres of altitude gain. Decide for yourself! The route is completely signposted and runs in a counter-clockwise direction. Imposing wooden portals, milestones and wonderfully designed animals as motif milestones also show you the way. There are idyllic places to rest along the way.
