Situated in the Orbiquet Valley, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Auge Region, Orbec lies on the banks of the river from which it took the Scandinavian name of the "Trout River" following the Viking colonisation. This small town of the Upper Auge Region is a not to be missed stopover, full of charm: take the time to admire the wood timbered houses and townhouses or follow one of the delightful footpaths proposed by the Pays de l'Orbiquet tourism office to discover Les chambres d'hôtes de Véronique et the local natural environment.
The source of the Orbiquet River is the meeting point of several underground. With an average supply of 450 l/second, it is one with one of the most important rate of flow in France. It was used as of the 11th century to operate many mills wheat, tanbark, fuller's earth or paper spread along the valley. Classified as a sensitive natural site, this restored area is perfect for walkers.
