  • Great place, well worth the trip. Changing colors of the water according to the hours of the day and the sky, driving tour typical of the region.

  • It was my first Via Ferrata, with my 15 year old son. We had a guide, Stéphane Husson very friendly and gives plenty of information about the fauna, flora, geography and history (you can find contact information on the net). The course of Via lasts between 4 and 5 hours including the approach March and return, Via a little physical is still part (we're rather sports: running, mountain biking and other sports regularly). It has impressive moments, including the monkey bridge between 2 peaks, should not be too afraid of the vacuum. But what a feeling and beautiful views over Lake Roselend (despite the clouds). Thanks to the weather we have seen almost no other Biped, and ran into an ibex and marmots. It's really an output top in Nice area which includes lots of trails for hiking. Come on ventilate you to the Cormet de Roselend without hesitation. Thanks again to Scott for his explanations and tips.
