At Porquerolles in the Port-Cros National Park, an electric bicycle with an adapted platform for people with reduced mobility is available

This tricycle, loaned free of charge to the Maison de Parc national, allows families, one of whose members is in a wheelchair, to discover the island of Porquerolles by bike. It allows you to walk with a person with reduced mobility without moving them from their wheelchair thanks to a tilting platform. Electric assistance facilitates pedalling. The bike can accommodate almost all types and sizes of wheelchairs, including power wheelchairs.

In Florac-Trois-Rivières in the Cévennes National Park, hike on the Chemin de Stevenson

 It is now possible to walk on Stevenson's Way when you are visually impaired! On the Lozère part as far as the Gard, from Florac-Trois-Rivières to Alès, a GPS in the form of a free digital application for smartphones has been designed to overcome the impossibility of a cartographic representation of space by a person with visual impairment. The heading is given orally based on the person's body axis and is updated every second.

“La nature en partage”
Since 2008, French National Parks have made a strong commitment to better take into account the handicap and to improve the accessibility of the territories.
Numerous actions have been implemented to facilitate access for people with physical, hearing, visual and intellectual disabilities in the national parks of France: making the Maisons du Parc national accessible, adapting hiking trails, creating tools of suitable discoveries...
National parks also have reception facilities accessible to all audiences and can, in certain places, provide you with suitable equipment.
Want to explore suitable hiking trails? The hiking portals of the national parks provide you with perfectly described routes to adapt your practice to your handicap.
