Forêt de Fontainebleau


This protected natural space, extending over nearly 62,000 acres, is a genuine green lung just 40 minutes from Paris. 


With 1,600 km of forest paths and 300 km of marked trails, the Forest of Fontainebleau is paradise for walkers and hikers. Discover peaceful paths, learning trails, nature trails, and special paths for people with limited mobility. The many different paths available provide visitors with a chance to discover the array of landscapes, between heaths and coniferous forests, with sandy areas and sandstone landscapes. More adventurous visitors can opt for a mountain-bike tour. That's one of the best things about Fontainebleau: you can travel across the forest by bicycle, on foot, or on horseback. 


The Forest of Fontainebleau is also a world-renowned site for mountain climbing. This sport, too, is open to those of all levels, from families to experienced climbers. The ancient Brie forest has become a grand natural leisure centre, while keeping its exceptional biodiversity.
