Between lakes and wolves in Mercantour
5 days

A 6-day family trip, semi-itinerant (level 2) and accompanied, to discover the Mercantour Park, its exceptional setting with a great variety of landscapes, lakes and fauna, as well as sites of prehistoric engravings, with accommodation in gites and refuges.

Level 2 walking : 4 to 5 hours per day on average on an undulating course.

The Mercantour National Park offers children a wonderful playground: lakes, impetuous torrents and basins to swim in. It also offers an incredible fauna. I promise you children, you will see chamois, marmots, wolves and certainly ibexes!

Detailed program of the stay :

* Day 1: Welcome at the Boréon gite in the late afternoon.

* Day 2: Discovery of the beautiful larch forest and progressive ascent to the Cougourde refuge. Discovery of our first chamois and ibex. Evening in the heart of the mountain, in a superb refuge. Lightened portage for this night at the refuge.

* Day 3 : A pleasant path leads us to the lake of Trécolpas. Marmots, maybe mouflons, or even chamois? The descent to the Boréon lodge is done in the forest. At the end of the afternoon, visit of the Alpha park and discovery of the wolf packs! Exchange with the teams of the center. Settling in the lodge for three nights. Your guide will leave you after the hike.

* Day 4: The wolves and the Alpha center. In the morning, guided visit of the wolf park and animation around this animal. After a picnic, we will go to the Cougourde refuge, for an evening in the heart of the mountain. Light porterage for this night at the refuge.

* Day 5 : Appointment with a guide of the Vésubie valley for a half day of canyoning in an easy and exotic site for the approach of this activity. A guide is with you and will share his knowledge with the children. The necessary equipment is provided.

* Day 6 : End of our services after breakfast. Why not spend one last day in Europe's largest indoor outdoor activity center. A great place to try climbing, canyoning or swimming in the huge pool... Or live a last crazy emotion with the giant zip line of La Colmiane ?
