Parc Alpha, Saint Martin-Vesubie

3.4
#1 of 24 in Parks in Alpes Maritimes
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Saint Martin-Vesubie trip simple and quick.

  • Otherwise it is not much... And even with meals, it is a little rush in observation huts... It's doing what people are able to be the first lodges or to get their kids in the front... In short! If you have the chance to go outside school holidays, feel free... After that, the concept of captivity, I have a little trouble, that's why I put way, but we learn a lot about wolves.

  • Very pretty discovery, everyone is very friendly, good discussions with trainers, a magical wolves comment ;) of parents and some 18 months to the angels!

  • Everything was absolutely perfect! We had a lot of luck with the weather, I think it was the best period for this activity, we crossed the snowy Park it was absolutely magical! The host was really at the top, Audrey took care of us from start to the end and was able to respond with patience and passion to our questions! We were able to attend the medical training as well as feeding, so we have seen the packs very closely, healer of a day is actually a moment, away from the crowd, quiet in nature and close to the animals. A big thank you to the entire team and especially to Aurore, Audrey and the intern who went very well care of us, we have learned a lot and had a wonderful time. It's a pleasure to see a park where animals are treated so well by their trainers that preserve the best wild life.
