The Forest of Chambord

The Domain of Chambord is surrounded by a 32 kilometer (100 ft) stone wall whose construction started at the end of the reign of François I. Oak groves, pine forests, moorland, swamp and clearings are all present in this landscape. In the national hunting and wildlife reserve that was founded in 1947, deer and boar live in natural state. The woods of Chambord serve to repopulate other forests in Europe with deer, and also welcome numerous rare species (both animal and plant). Special attention is paid to the biodiversity of the natural habitat. The whole domain is managed according to the principles of sustainable development.

Whether on foot or by bike, benefit from nature’s serenity at Chambord with 800 acres of forest open to the public. The animals live in the wild all over the domain, and there are specially equipped viewing points for visitors to observe them.

Visit the reserve with an off-road vehicle You can benefit all throughout the year from this marvelous way of discovering the nature reserve in Chambord. Accompanied by a forest guide, aboard an off-road vehicle, you are all set to explore this peaceful yet complex natural habitat. A visit around the lakes, meadows, and moorland in the largest enclosed nature reserve in Europe will bring you some interesting knowledge on how wildlife is managed. When you stop at Trophy Hall, the largest trophy display in France (400 items exhibited), you will also see how the antlers of the same stag evolve over a seven-year period. It will be an hour and a half of unforgettable moments amidst ferns and clearings. You may even turn a corner and be pleasantly surprised to catch a glimpse of some of the larger animals in the forest. Duration: 1h 30mins - Fee: 18€/10€ - Number of places: 8

In a traditional horse-drawn carriage To the gentle clip-clopping of hooves, you will spend 45 minutes visiting outside the château, taking forest tracks which are normally closed to the public. The coach driver will give you a running commentary throughout the tour. Tours depart from the Chateau.
