Spending time as a family is a precious source of well-being.
Parents can relax in nature while the kids enjoy trying new activities in the dynamic, fascinating Vosges.
There are plenty of things to do as a family, with something for all ages and all tastes. Walking, for example, is a great way to discover the natural treasures of the Vosges Mountains in a new light.
Living and learning
The kids are not very excited about hiking in the mountains today. We’re sure that the fresh air will do them good, so we suggest a walk on the Goat’s Trail. The thought of coming face to face with animals brings about some unexpected excitement. For nearly 2 hours, the children have a great time walking the trail along the animal park. Appearances from goats, deer and other farm animals make this family outing a hit.
Walking as a family
At any age, hiking requires the right equipment and a bit of preparation. When hiking with little ones, it’s important to remember to hydrate, protect everyone from the sun and wear the right shoes. Read our list of advice and tips to fully enjoy your outing.
It’s an adventure for the kids! Along every hike, there are lots of questions about the plants and animals that surround us. Step by step, we take the time to explain a few of nature’s secrets and teach the kids about preserving the environment. The children quickly understand how important it is to protect nature’s treasures.
21 family walks
Hikers of all ages can discover the Vosges Mountains in both summer and winter. Discover the landscapes on one of the 21 family-friendly itineraries, categorised by difficulty. The short, mostly flat walks are perfect for kids. Once everyone is geared up, all ages can follow the waymarkers maintained by the Club Vosgien.
So that everyone can participate in the hike, some of the walks are stroller-friendly.
Walking and having fun
We don’t walk just to walk. Hiking with the children is about spending time as a family in a natural setting. We adapt the hike to their needs, and we often stop along the way to rest or play a game. Nature is a larger than life playground that is just waiting to be enjoyed.
The Vosges Mountains are a preserved natural site; please don’t leave your rubbish behind.
