GLR 27 Route info
Ever wondered what the interior of Southern France looks like? The GLR 27 gives you the right impression of the Mediterranean landscape, but also the richness of the ardèche region. This addition to the GLR Network explores the Department of Ardèche from Lalouvesc in the north, to Barjac on the southern border.
Just after your departure in Lalouvesc, you hit the dirt. This almost 5-kilometer long off-road section gives you a good impression of what lies ahead. Dusty off-road sections are followed up with somewhat longer on-road sections.
The Ardèche Department knows stricter off-road riding legislation and therefore for this GLR also less off-road sections. Despite the 35 kilometers of off-road sections, this adventure route guides you through one amazing region worth exploring!
While making your way down south, the route joins the GLR 4 the last 45 kilometers to end up at your destination in Barjac. If you’re continuing your adventure on the GLR 4, please keep this in mind while browsing the connections sections down below!

Château de Crussol
There’s not much left of the 12th-century castle, but it gives you the right impression of how adventurous this region was almost a thousand years ago! You’ll see the ruin from quite far, as it’s located right at a 200 meters high cliff.
Ravin de Corbœf
Visit this 500 meters long Canyon on your day off! Explore the local geography or the museum nearby.
Massif du Mézenc
This remnant of a volcano sticks out in its surroundings. The highest point reaches 1753 meters above sea level. A perfect place to visit for a day of hiking!
