Lac Blanc’s barefoot trail

The barefoot trail of the Lac Blanc is located in the Parc d’Aventures of the Lac Blanc. Lac Blanc is a ski resort near Kayserbserg. In summer, you can hike, bike, mountain bike, try “accrobranche” and… walk a barefoot trail!

The concept of barefoot trails was born in Germany. The idea is to rediscover forgotten sensations, to reconnect with nature and to benefit from a nice foot massage. It’s also a good opportunity to do something a bit different.

You will take off your shoes at the entrance, leave your shoes in a closed locker and off you will go on the barefoot path, in the beautiful forest of Lac Blanc! You walk in turns on the forest soil and on grounds especially built (stone, wood, barks, gravel, water…). Some sections are very pleasant, but on the whole, it’s a bit too painful. Maybe my feet are too sensible, I don’t know… The experience is still fun, even though I did not get a chance to relax.

You will find along the walk some pedagogical workshops about the 5 senses. Sweets to try, odors to smell, trees to recognize… It’s well made, fun and instructive!

The barefoot trail of Lac Blanc spreads over 1.2 km. Please count about 1h30 to do it, including the walk and workshops. At the end, there is a shower to wash your feet.

I liked

  • Being able to walk barefoot in the nature
  • The beauty of the forest
  • Pedagogical workshops on the way, perfect for children

I liked a little less

  • It’s a little bit too painful for the feet!
