More than 2 participants meet each year in March on the Aubrac plateau, to celebrate Laguiole AOP cheese. As its name suggests, Les Traces du Fromage is an event organized by the Cooperative Jeune Montagne, which offers to discover our territory and its flavors by dedicating a day of walking to it. Laguiole AOP cheese, mulled wine, gentian, fouace, aligot are there to invigorate you.

This day of hiking is placed under the sign of the meeting. Les Traces du Fromage is also the discovery of heritage: you walk from buron to buron, these small shelters where the herds were kept during the summer and where the cheese was made by hand. You are warmly welcomed and you interact with breeders and producers, while enjoying yourself!
