  • I suggest you park as high as possible as it climbs well! The car from the top is reserved for the bus, people with reduced mobility, strollers... and yet it will still walk a steep portion before reaching the Park. Allow sneakers, water, a little jacket. Adult admission is € 7, is quite reasonable. I advise you to go from the start, because the animals will still be eating close to you! It is obvious, that you are not with your 4-legged friend, you hold your children, that you avoid running and shouting. We don't give food to animals, we don't touch them, even if they touch you... Don't forget that we are at home. You can follow the "inner" loop, ride family, easy, fast enough, or the "outer" loop that climbs, it takes longer, but you will see the same animals. There are no fences, animals move so you will see in all cases. This Park is really very nice, and the summer there is the freshness that is welcome. At the beginning of the course you have a panoramic restaurant with a magnificent view of Mont Blanc, nothing that the view's worth eating there! Savoyard specialities but not that, and the price is not excessive. 2 adults, with appetizers, dishes, desserts, drinks, we had to for € 62. I really recommend you to finish your morning with a small meal in head to head with our beautiful Mont Blanc! Arriving at the Park, be sure to book as the tables fill up quickly, and the first who have booked are at the forefront of this beautiful landscape ;)

  • Amazing animal park. For the price of 7 euro you can walk among animals. Highly recommended to reach the park by feet!
  • A truly amazing attraction. The tickets would be worth it at double the price to be honest. The café is very reasonably priced too considering they have a captive market there. My wife and I saw marmuts (came within a couple of metres of us), an ibex(surprised us by sneaking up on us, got to within a metre of us on the path before we turned round and saw it), deer, chamois and other wildlife too. Thoroughly recommended!
  • Wonderful place to go with children, amazing views and animals freely running near you. An absolute must-see when you are in Chamonix.
  • Great farm with lots of animals. Great place to hike at the same time. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Wild animals - awesome
