Rich in historical and cultural heritage, the stretch of the Seine valley that connects the region of Paris to Normandy boasts spectacular landscapes carved by the entrenched, meandering, cliff-lined River Seine. This part of Normandy has captivated painters and writers for centuries and today, it makes for an inspiring horseback adventure immersed in nature.
This 76km horse-riding trail follows the Seine Valley through many changing landscapes, from atmospheric woods to rolling grasslands, from steep hillsides punctuated by white chalk pinnacles to open moors. Explore the beautiful Meanders of the Seine Regional Natural Park, Impressionist villages and medieval abbeys steeped in thousands of years of history.
