This Mediterranean part of the Alps has many interesting
features. The wolf has reintroduced itself from the neighboring Parco
de l'Argentera. The flora is abundant, the fauna is fairly tame and easy
to observe. It is common to have chamois, ibex or marmots graze just a
few meters away. It is the place of the oldest known mountain civilization,
who left stone engravings over 5 000 years ago.
Refuge de Nice area in late spring
La Vallée de la Gordolasque, near Belvedère give
access to various hanging valleys and summits like Mt Clapier and Gelas.
Great place for snowshoes and skis until late spring.
