This section of the ViaRhôna cycling trail goes along both terraced vineyards and orchards.The first part in Ardèche, as you come from Lyon, shows how the Rhône river supplies different farming land whether it be the culture of fruit trees, market gardening or vineyards where Saint-Joseph is King. When you arrive in Tournon sur Rhône follow the temporary trail signs to continue. At the dam south of Tournon sur Rhône the track heads to the village of Glun. Discover the unusual marsh around the village of la Roche de Glun with its fascinating, characteristic biodiversity.

2 points of interest

  • The King's table

    This rock standing in the middle of the river Rhône doesn’t have just any name ! It is said that in 1248, Saint Louis on his way to the crusades, stopped here for an unintended quick bite to eat in the shade of the grape vines on the Hermitage hillsides.
  • Lake

    Musard lake

    The old “Golfe des Musards” is now a lake ideal for taking a stroll. A tour round offers visitors a way to discover all about the local fauna (on information boards) and places for relaxing (picnic areas, playground). Activities available : fishing, walking, jousting (enquire for the dates). Bathing is not allowed. The lake is situated not far from the mooring post at La Roche de Glun on the neighbouring Rhône river. Information source : La Drôme Tourisme
