The Vosges have long been held in high standing as French peaks of substantial value. Their history is endless, dating back to pre-Roman times, and the enchanting landscape is just as amazing. Hidden among the forests and meadows is the Lac de Pierre-Percee, also known as “Petite Canada” for its iconic maple-leaf shape.

Your hike explores this delightful wonder on a half-day full of surprising facts and marvelous enchantments. The lake itself boasts a meandering shoreline with delectable trails, a network of paths covering nearly 35 kilometers. Tuck yourself into one of its many coves and engulf yourself in the wooded magic of the Vosges. Whether you are watching the world go by from the shoreline or perusing its compelling countryside, the allure of Lac de Pierre-Percee knows no bounds.

Our trek will place you directly into this captivating destination, a perfect choice for a relaxed program. France is known for having a stunning and serene nature, and nowhere is this more profound than along the calming paths of Pierre-Percee.

This is one of my favorite areas to wander through in the entire country, and I know you will enjoy the experience as much as I do. Everyone who loves hiking, history, and culture will appreciate a half-day immersion in this natural paradise.

Head to the northern Vosges and book your hiking program NOW to fall under the spell of the Lac de Pierre-Percee and the relentless beauty of eastern France!

We can also take some time to visit Mont Donan and learn of its culturally significant history! Or we can spend a half-day hiking Col de la Chapelotte!
