Admire the Rolampont tufa formations
The Rolampont tufa formations are a rare and fragile, lively and active biological environment. This monumental natural staircase built by flowing water is a listed and unique site in France. The numerous observation platforms set up in the tufa field immerse you in the serenity of the place and the wealth of its biodiversity. The water, overflown by dragonflies, transforms the mosses into "tufa" and accentuates the green look of this natural laboratory.
Enjoy the purity of Chalmessin National Nature Reserve
At the bottom of a valley called "Combe Forquot" or Goulottes Valley", there is one of the most remarkable tufa marshes on Langres Plateau. Topped with a limestone grassland, it forms Chalmessin National Nature Reserve, a natural treasure in the middle of the woods that is completely free of noise pollution. Here you will sharpen your sense of observation in search of rare and protected butterflies, such as the Woodland Brown, the Marsh Fritillary or the Large Heath, dragonflies or Spotted Salamanders.
