Who are we?

Who are we?The history”

The Javerlhac tourist board was created in 1969 by local residents so it has been active for decades.

It is responsible for sign-posting, clearing cleaning walking/hiking trails plus publishing booklets.

The first website was introduced in 204. It was hosted by multimania. The link disappeared in 2012.

2011 a new team took over the callange.

2014 the competence of tourism was transferred to a new community of municipalities. The president did not want the unions of initiatives to keep their historicalnames that is why the association has relegated the tem 'syndicat d'initiative' in second place of the name, which, therefore has continuity since 1969. Since the summer 2014 the official name is 'Javerlhac Discovery'.

The supply of tourist brochures is now officially dependant on the intercommunal tourist office.

Volunteers often look for leaflets to display in the tourist office.
