On foot, on horseback or by bike, Rouen’s forests are a true natural heritage to explore.Walkers will find a source of escape, sportsmen a diversified playground and dreamers fabulous reasons for contemplation.
Three state forests in Rouen hold the national label Forêt d’Exception. A particularly selective label that recognizes the richness and enhancement of the massifs. The latter constitute real green lungs for the Norman capital since they cover 25,000 ha of greenery, i.e. a third of its territory!Rouen is thus the first agglomeration with a forest heart in France.Walk on its educational trails, discover its arboretum or its animal park. Experience the forest in sporting, contemplative and even artistic mode!
