Want to get active?

Everything's possible in the Haute-Vienne! Climb in the trees for a moving adventure in a rope park, treat yourself to a sailing course on Saint-Pardoux or Vassivière Lakes, go waterskiing on Meuzac Lake. You could also venture out on the bike rail. Unless you choose to gallop at the foot of Mont Gargan, go fly fishing in the lively waters of the Vienne, play golf or go rollerskating along a Green Way…

Discover the Haute-Vienne in a different way

We invite you on an exploratory immersion of the major sites in our département. 360°-panoramic-photos open up perspectives and offer incredible panoramas.  What a view from the summit of Mont Gargan, the highest point in the Haute-Vienne; seeing the Auvergne mountains from the Monts d'Ambazac at Sauvagnac is worth the side trip.
