Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web
Parc Alpha offers an intimate look at the famous wolves of Mercantour, also known as the Alpha Wolves of France. These creatures returned to the French mountains in the early 1990s and have remained here since. About 12 hectares (29.7 acres) in Mercantour National Park have been enclosed to help perpetuate three packs--more than three dozen individual wolves. In this semi-wild environment, they coexist with the forest's existing predators. Ask about feeding opportunities. Kids will enjoy this attraction, but it's not designed for strollers.

  • Great Park! We came by car and already the journey to reach is absolutely sublime! The Park is beautiful and very well maintained! The wolves have large enclosures and seem to evolve naturally! Not the impression of seeing animals running around in circles as sometimes in zoos, really a beautiful environment! We have the chance to observe them closely when feeding!

  • an immersion in nature in the world of the Wolf. A good bowl of oxygen in the heart of the Mercantour. Think about taking good shoes. Duration of the tour about 2 to 3 hours. Attention, to see the wolves eat, 3 schedules which are 11: 00, 12:00 and 15:30. A focus on the schedule from 11:15 because you the healer which is present after the meal. As a couple, focus on a week day because weekend, there are a lot of children and noises, so less nice as for the wolves as visitors (for peace)
