  • Parking: 5 euros but then the visit of the site is free. There are 2 courses, a somewhat longer than the other but all is done in 1 h 30 maximum by really taking the time to walk softly and making breaks photos. Fabulous colors from white sand, yellow, ochre... very nice walk in nature, accessible even to children.

  • The ride is mandatory when moving near Rustrel! The site is beautiful, there are two hikes (a very simple and one for more experienced), worth a visit! Only problem parking € 5 per car!

  • Very funny day out. The place is really worth the parking price. Best at sunset
  • Some very interesting formations, the shortest hike is ~1h light roundtrip, worth doing it!
  • Some nice trails and the red sand is nice, but the hikes are pretty standard and after a while it gets repetitive, but if you like hikes, I am sure you will love it.
  • At Colorado in Provence! Stunning scenery with everything from ochre to iron oxide. Maybe this is what it's like to be on March (bar the trees and tourists, of course! :) A must-see, landscapes of another world between ochre and iron oxide. You might think on Mars, vegetation and tourists and more! :)

  • What beautiful place of Provence. It is very relaxing, especially when it's fine. The largest circuit is 3 hours of market taking its time. Provide a few euros for the parking. Otherwise the rest is free.
