Hiking and nature discovery

By following your guide step by step you will learn to soak up our nature, to rediscover it, appreciate and respect it. These direct encounters with our nature will allow you to observe animal life, identify flowers, to learn the best way to put your hand on the rocky cliff to climb, how to take off on your zip-line. Many hiking paths start directly from the campsite.

Hiking nature walks

800 kilometres of waymarked footpaths
are at your disposal

The Ubaye Valley offers almost unlimited opportunities for hiking, over 800 kilometres of waymarked footpaths are at your disposal, all clearly signposted and well-maintained.  The variety of hikes is never-ending – craggy peaks, rolling meadows, thundering waterfalls and crystal clear lakes.

The scenery is breathtaking, in late spring and early summer the meadows are carpeted with wild flowers such as orchids, anemones and gentians.  As summer gives way to autumn the vibrant hues contrasting with the clear blue sky are a photographer's dream.

Wildlife lovers and birdwatchers will not be disappointed, most of the higher altitude walks provide plentiful opportunities to see marmots, chamois and ibex, and large raptors such as eagles and vultures are frequently soaring overhead.

In addition to all the local footpaths, numerous national GR (Grande Randonnée) routes also cross the valley and there are a great number of refuges, both staffed and unstaffed, where one can get a meal or spend the night.

If you feel like trying something adventurous why not hire the services of an experienced mountain guide and tackle one of the famous local peaks such as the Pain du Sucre or the Brec du Chambeyron.
