Hiking and wildlife discovery activities : Les Bouldouïres campsite, nature campsite Hérault in La Salvetat-sur-Agoût

Hiking is spectacular in the area around La Salvetat-sur-Agoût. On foot, horse or mountain bike, hikers can explore a diverse countryside that will more than fulfill their expectations. Deep and varied forests, river banks of rushing rivers or the spread-out shores of a lake, mountain slopes with sometimes easy, sometimes challenging reliefs : the natural site of this mountain land of the Haut-Languedoc is made up of varied landscapes that offer different levels of difficulty, making hiking here very attractive. Interpretive trails are open for outdoor sports and recreation, the recreation center ‘Les Bouldouïres’ adds an extra element to the experience with the creation of an interpretive nature trail that provides a better understanding of the evolution of the area’s wildlife.
On request of the townhall of La Salvetat-sur-Agoût, the CPIE of the Haut-Languedoc created an original trail inspired by the local legend of the Drac.
Scattered along an educational and playful path, 15 casts of animal traces (from feathers to fur) create a trail that challenges the sense of observation :
for those wishing to join in, the footprints and clues progressively become more than just something to pass the time, but a lesson on life.

Route of St Jacques
de Compostelle
One piece of advice : don’t leave the village without seeing the chapel of Saint-Etienne of Cavall (11th Century), where the Black Virgin Notre-Dame-d’Entraygues is still worshipped.
Th miracle Virgin, dating from the 11th Century, was allegedly found by a cow at the confluence of the Agoût and the Vèbre rivers (Entraygues means « between the waters ».).
