To travel happy, travel light!

The 3 steeples hike

Soissons is often referred to as a city in the country: the countless valleys and plateaus that surround the city are so many possibilities for discovery routes in the heart of nature.

On foot, on horseback or by bike, the possibilities of routes and itineraries are numerous and will meet all requirements! So, prepare your backpack, your itinerary and your shoes and go discover the axonaise nature!

Your visit

One of the emblematic routes of the territory remains the hiking route known as “Les Trois Clochers”, which will take you from Septmonts and its well-known keep, to the castle of Berzy-le-Sec, passing through the village of Noyant-et-Aconin in the Crise valley.

As you walk the shaded paths of this itinerary along the river, or on the balcony with their panoramic views, you will be surprised by the beauty and diversity of the landscapes that the Crise has created as it carves its course through the Soissonnais plateau.


As you pass from village to village, you will discover a heritage of rural architecture of an unsuspected and original richness, with first of all, the houses with sparrow steps so typical of the Soissonnais.

All in all, it is a route of some 12 km that presents itself to you, enough to enjoy a nice half-day with the family to discover landscapes and atmospheres so typical of the GrandSoissons!”
