The 10 French national parks

The 10 Parcs nationaux de France - the Vanoise, the Cévennes, Port-Cros, the Mercantour, the Écrins, the Pyrenées, Guadeloupe, the Reunion Island, Guyana and the Calanques - are rich with exceptional landscapes and are home to some remarkable fauna and flora. They are also places of life and revitalization for men and women. It is their role to ensure that this precious patrimony is available to the public and to transmit it to future generations. While protecting biodiversity is one of their essential missions, the national parks also play a role in the safeguarding of cultural heritage and contribute to the valorisation of activities which are compatible with respect for nature.

Today they are taking one step further with the creation of the brand Esprit parc national , which represents the values of the national parks.

A brand inspired by nature

Guided by the values which the national parks have represented for more than 50 years: commitment, authenticity, respect, sharing, and vitality, the Esprit parc national  brand promotes products and services imagined and created by women and men who are committed to safeguarding and promoting the exceptional territories of the French national parks.
A collective brand,

Committed to the respect of the environment and the protection of the territories, and carrying a message of solidarity by giving priority to the local economy, for the consumer the brand is a sign of confidence and standards.
