Mercantour National Park
A pas feutrés : snowshoeing in a Panda gîte
4 days
Medium

In partnership with Argos Rando, Christiane RAY ANEZIN will accompany you on snowshoes for 3 days to discover the Mercantour National Park, its villages and their history, its hamlets which will reveal the life of yesteryear, but also how nature has adapted over time and seasons.

You'll discover the Haut Verdon valley in the heart of the Mercantour National Park. Topics such as flora and fauna (ruminants, birds, insects...) will be covered, as you make your way through marvelous landscapes including the glacial cirque of Lac d'Allos, Europe's largest high-altitude lake.

Detailed program:

* Day 1 : Meet at the gîte in Colmars les Alpes from 6pm

Installation and presentation of your stay by your guide. Night in gîte

* Day 2: Departure from gîte at 8:30 am - climb 400 m - 14 km

This first day of hiking will give you a panoramic view of the highest peaks in the Haut-Verdon.

* Day 3: departure from the gîte at 8:30 am - climb 600 m - 5 hrs walk

A beautiful loop starting from a small hamlet that used to be the border between France and the County of Savoy. You'll have the chance to spot chamois, eagles...

* Day 4 : departure from the gîte at 8:30 am - lac d'Allos - altitude gain 650 m - 15 km.

A number of themes will be covered on this final day, including the protection of wildlife in winter. After the hike, you can stop off at the Sainte Brigitte farm, which makes cow's milk cheese.
