Summer stroll : Discovering the starry sky
Grande Rue - Le Village
There is no better place than the mountains to enjoy the starry sky. Far from any light pollution, Marc AYNIE proposes during three hours a discovery of the main observable celestial objects.
This is a half-day night hike (as soon as it gets dark), accessible to the whole family (children from 8 years old), lasting about 3 hours, including the round-trip walk and the observation.
Very difficult to observe in an urban environment, the Milky Way will be revealed here in all its splendor. The approach walk necessary to reach the site will be an opportunity to discover the natural environment in a completely different way, in the protected area of the Mercantour National Park. This outing is offered from spring to autumn
