Hiking, Nordic Walk and Animations Nature


"The BPMGL (Greater Lyon's Mountaineering professionals' bureau) gathers together professionals who live in Lyon or Greater Lyon and have a passion for their professions. BPMGL members offer a wide range of activities and destinations for locals and tourists alike.
The main activities on offer are hiking and an even healthier athletic version in the form of Nordic walking through Greater Lyon and its surrounding hills (Monts d’Or, Monts du Lyonnais, Val de Saône…) and the Alps: hiking in the Alps, snowshoe walking, canyoning… We can also meet all your incentive building activity requirements (in relation to previously listed activities).
Regular activities in the heart of nature for locals and visitors in the Lyon area.
Our weekly programme is available on www.promontgrandlyon.org and our regular info for locals and tourists visiting the Greater Lyon area details seasonal activities and a variety of locations and destinations. We can also help companies in search of professionals. The BPMGL is made up of 5 AeMs (Mid-range Mountain Guides) and therefore perfectly capable of dealing with large groups.
Our environmentally friendly Eco-Gône hikes aim to limit our carbon footprint. They involve walks in the surrounding countryside with a mountain guide acting as a mediator in this totally natural environment and opt for green travel solutions (Lyon's public transport system bus (TCL), its regional express train (TER) and/or ride pooling…) departing from Lyon. We also organize effective 'fair for all' car-pooling for longer trips or destinations not served by the public transport system.
We offer daily theme-based activities related to the environment and characteristics of the territories we are visiting. We organize all sorts of tours (meditative, cultural, energetic) all of which are accessible to a wide range of people.
Tours last 4 to 5 hours with transport lasting 30 to 45 minutes.
Departure from the appointed bus stop or train station for a day of hiking in the hills and exceptional landscapes surrounding the metropolitan area of Lyon.

People with disabilities are also welcome to join these hikes thanks to the help of a qualified Handisport guide and specially adapted tools (a joëlette, a one-wheeled chair that can be carried by two assistants or an all-terrain wheelchair) subject to prior booking."
