  • Very interesting to walk around, well organized, striking colors. We all really enjoyed it. Takes less than an hour. Don’t miss the neighboring town which is gorgeous as well.  more »
  • We stayed in the small village of Roussillon and loved it there. The Ochre cliffs are an amazing site. The village is cute with little shops and restaurants. The hike among the ochre colors are...  more »
  • Of course there is plenty of iron rich soil in the world, but the Ohcre formations in Rousillon are truly spectacular, as is the whole village scenery !  more »

  • Really enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Colors are amazing. Coming from Australia and having traveled the outback there, I was interested to learn about the similar way in which the colors were created. The walk itself is very well cared for, and you are encouraged not to go off-track to preserve the environment. It is around five minutes walk from the town up the hill past the car park. The price of entry is definitely worth it
  • The beauty is at the very beginning of the route, the rest is nothing special, just a usual trail in the forest. The small route should take 35 minutes, but it actually takes 20 minutes max. of 3 euro per person, children under 14 free. Parking 3 euro for 24h. The city near the Trail is small and unpresentable. I would say you need half a day for the trail and the city.
  • Cute little town with unique color. But watch out the weather, the walking trail was closed when we visit due to security reason (rain and heavy wind). The red mountain and surrounding view were still nice for photo.
  • Interesting and beautiful to see. The paths are easy to walk and the posted information along the way was informative.
  • Spend the 2.50 euro or whatever it costs and go for a little trek through the rocks. It’s gorgeous. The colour of the surroundings is immense and it is so wonderfully quiet in parts of this walk.
