A setting of purity
Conducive to wellbeing and sporting challenges
Head inland to the Southern French Alps, where the air is pure and the sky is crystal clear. Green pastures, snow-capped peaks and natural stony slopes are the wild kingdoms of groundhogs, chamois and ibex. This lively and untamed nature, crossed by impetuous rivers, lends itself wonderfully to outdoor activities: hiking, winter sports, paddling and kitesurfing on the Serre-Ponçon lake. This pure and preserved nature is also to be admired. Wrapped in a blanket, watch the stars shine from the peaks. Set off to meet the wolves in the Mercantour National Park.
Culture and know-how
Travelling through the Alps is also about discovering the architectural heritage left by Vauban to Briançon and Mont-Dauphin, the local woodcraft and terracotta craftsmanship, and tasty culinary specialties that will bring you a touch of authenticity.
The 68 resorts of the Southern French Alps offer a multitude of activities for your sporty or lazy vacation: winter sports, outdoor activities, activities in high mountains (white-water sports, aerial sports, climbing, etc.) and roaming in all its forms (hiking, horse riding, cycling, car and motorcycle rides, etc.).
