A 48-day, 970 km walk through Burgundy and down the Loire.
Starting at Cluny, we walked north via Nolay to Autun. From there we continued through the forests of the Morvan, to Vézelay, Chablis and Auxerre.
Turning south, we followed the Yonne River and the Canal du Nivernais to Tanny, then turned west to join the Loire at Cosne-sur-Loire.
For almost the rest of the walk we went downstream on the Loire, past Orléans and Tours to Saumur, before finally running out of time at Saint-Mathurin-sur-Loire. Our only deviation was to Azay-le-Rideau and Chinon.
