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.

  • Loved this tour. Predict at least 3 hours to do. We had time to do workshops for children. Inquire about schedules for feedings at the risk of not seeing the wolves. We spent a good afternoon. Despite the work. The staff is very available and very pro. Only downside we're very directed in the Park.

  • Still a park or looking for wolves! This season in September you get wolves especially with the work in the Park making a noise... so expect the feeding to see a pack fro what interest you can go your way. I have the memory of a Wolf Park in the Ariège which was much more exciting. Here at the end of the season we make fun of tourists. No attraction, work, noise and a park not made for people with reduced mobility

  • What a disappointment! You should know that the wolves are fed at 3.45 pm... so having arrived on site at 16:10. . (because given the lack of signage, we have of the return to the start of the path to buy our ticket) the shadow of a wolf... Maybe because they are full...? seen 2 from far away... not for us personnel Guide... Very disappointed with our visit, no response to my mail sent to our return...
