Suisse Normande is a great place for outdoor activities with numerous footpaths through countryside rich in wildlife. There are plenty of mountain bike tracks too, although the hills can provide some serious challenges ! The area has many trout rivers and some are very fast flowing like at Vieux Saint Aubert.
Rivers and lakes are great for kayaking and canoeing. At Pont d’Ouilly in Calvados, in fact the river marks the boundary between the 2 départements, the outdoor activity centre offers training courses. At Pont Erambourg try a different type of vehicle and go rail-biking along the old railway line.
Suisse Normande has a wide range of holiday properties : gites, B&Bs, unusual accommodation and gites for groups. Suisse Normande has no fixed boundaries and in the 1920s Bagnole de l’Orne claimed to be part of it ! The area is within a large triangle between Flers, Falaise and Thury-Harcourt.
