The Parc National des Écrins
Discover Diverse Landscapes
Created in 1973, the Parc National des Écrins, located between Gap, Grenoble and Briançon, is a jewel of nature in the raw. With 150 summits more than 3,000 metres high and its thousands of hectares of glaciers, it majestically asserts its incredibly diverse character. Pine forests, screes, snowfields, vertiginous rock walls, meadows and mountain pastures stretch over 750 kilometres of trails where no fewer than 2,500 plant species bloom. It is also a great playground for the very varied fauna it houses, including the iconic chamois and mountain goats. Finally, the Parc National des Écrins is a popular meeting point for hikers and mountaineers from around the world.
