ULM Parc Naturel Régional de la Forêt d'Orient

Vineyards, lakes, forests, plains… Aube en Champagne is full of colourful landscapes and different atmospheres for a total change of scene. On foot, you can get lost, you can enjoy smelling the scents, up in the air you watch and admire the differences in colours: a peak of adrenalin at take-off, and all that’s left is to let yourself glide. In addition to our selection of activities, let yourself be inspired by Yonder’s programme for a weekend in Champagne.
