  • The Vercors is really a massive not to miss in the Grenoble area, so many ballads breathtaking

  • On foot, ski (track or background) or by bike, the variations are endless. The sites are varied with each their own character. Whether side plate or behind the cliffs, the possibilities are endless and whatever the season. Impossible to get bored of this as varied as wilderness, the cliffs, the sweetness of the plateau, caves and friendly locals smiling and willing to share their land the Vercors, we love!

  • Unforgettable memories of a hike of 6 days riding with "The Vercors on horseback", equestrian center located at La Chapelle in Vercors. We rode in the regional park, and also in the heart of the Park, the reserve, which offers a wilderness to the unsuspected beauty. If we're not cavalier, we can also discover these places on foot. A few tough climbs to the Highlands, but we go at his own pace and we'll meet at the end of the world, the effort is well rewarded. On foot, by horse, ski, etc., can be found an excellent reception at the cottage of the Vercors, hamlet of slow, BOUVANTE. Of course, go through major bottlenecks, the Bourne Gorge, climb to the Grand Veymont if you have the form, admire the Mont-needle and so many other wonders, but go into the reserve in the Highlands! Unforgettable!
