The red gorges de Daluis
Magnificent hikes wind through the regional nature reserve of the gorges, crossed by the river Var, situated in the back country of the Alpes Maritimes between the Mercantour Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.
Over 900 meters in the red Permian pelites, you will admire these spectacular and unusual views simular to the grand canyon, nicknamed “Little Colorado”.
The Nature Reserve has a rich mineralogical heritage. More than 70 species of minerals have been identified here.
A privileged meeting place between Man and Nature.
This protected area is a lively territory that welcomes pastoralism, hunting and fishing. Managing many different hobbies and frequency of visitors are priorities on this site where many outdoor sports meet: hiking, mountain biking, canyoning, bungee jumping, etc.
The Mercantour National Park.
Traveling in the Mercantour causes astonishment and constant wonder. Glacial and then fluvial erosion has shaped amazing landscapes in the Southern Alps.
Sometimes as austere as Mount Mounier or mysterious as Mount Bego, the panorama that offers the succession of lakes, passes, peaks and gorges is simply majestic.
From the charm of Provence to the grandiose of the Alps!
