Lormes to Auxerre

This six-day section through northern Burgundy began with a visit to Vézelay, starting point of one of the famous pilgrimages..

Then, after a short but difficult transition to Avallon, it was a river walk along the rivers Cousin and Cure, as far as Cravant (just past Vermenton), where the Cure finally flows into the Yonne. At that point we branched off, attracted by the name Chablis, to visit this famous wine village, before making our way back to the river Yonne at Auxerre, the largest town in the district and a fascinating one.
