How to keep the summer going a little bit longer? Follow our guide!

A change of air

Accompanied by your guide, set off for the peak of Mont-Brouilly in the early hours. From there, you can take in the sunrise and the stunning view of the surrounding region, as you enjoy a delicious local breakfast prepared by Gare aux Gourmands, and learn about history, geology and life in the local area.
A well-organised outing and a timeless experience!

Fun outing

We have found the perfect recipe to explore the Beaujolais as a family. With Randoland, you can let the kids be your guide as they follow a treasure hunt-trail sheet filled with clues about local heritage, history and nature. Several sheets are available, each one offering a free and easy walk (only in French). 
Available to downland at randoland.fr

A tasty experience

Located at Le Château des Vergers in Lantignié, Frédéric Berne is a passionate winegrower who uses biodynamic methods. Discover his organic wines (Beaujolais Villages, Régnié, Chiroubles, Morgon) and estate during a walk, a tour with tasting, or an oenology-themed escape game.

Guided tastings

Alone or as a group, TastyLyon takes you on a mini-van discovery tour of a selection of wine and food attractions. These well-organised, multi-sensory trails offer a chance to experience the best of Beaujolais’ heritage, including introductions, tours, and tastings of wines and local specialities.

Take to the skies

An experience to be had at least once: a hot air balloon flight over the landscapes of Beaujolais, with Alti Rêve. Setting off from Bagnols, on a solo, duo, family or VIP balloon flight, the team ensure your comfort (small gondolas) and safety. After landing, you are treated to some of the local charcuterie and a wine tasting.
This is an exceptional moment of peace and freedom.
