Festival Grandes Heures Nature

The outdoor festival Grandes Heures Nature returns this year in the aim of helping us revive those joys of the great outdoors.
Due to the health crisis, the programme has been reworked and split between 3 different dates.

The first was in spring, the next is on Sunday 18th July and will give pride of place to watersports and cycling, with a spotlight on ecotourism, the ViaFrancigena long-distance trail, and soft mobilities. Finally, the 25th September will be a multisports day featuring the "Raids X’Périences" (orienteering, trail-running, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, climbing and various challenges…)

 

Practical info:

Dates: 3 different dates

Venue: Besançon
