Description

"Hiking with a donkey, it is to walk differently, it is to choose to live in nature taking with you all that superfluous that allows to be oneself".

This tour will allow you to enter the wild natural reserve of the Vercors massif highlands, to appreciate the silence, to discover a very interesting fauna and flora and to better understand the pastoral life. Thanks to our four-legged companions you will be able to travel light and in autonomy and thus to install bivouacs in places of dream.

An ideal formula for families and lovers of authentic nature.

Program

D1: Climb on the Vercors highlands. 
Meet in Bénevise at 9.30am. Presentation of our fellow travelers, distribution of loads. Climb on the high plateaux of the Vercors massif passing under the Aiguilles de Bénevise through pine forest, fields of lavender and walnut trees... We will access the plateau and the reserve at the sheepfolds of Tussac.
3 hours of walking, installation of the bivouac near the sheepfolds, night in the camp.

D2: Hiking to the Jardin du Roy sheepfolds.
Perhaps we will have the chance to observe chamois, ibex and marmots. Many routes are possible on the plateau. We will choose a superb location for the bivouac taking advantage of the few springs.
4 hours of walking, night in the camp.

D3: Tête Chevalière, superb belvedere towards Oisans and Obiou.
Then it will be the return to civilization by the col de Greuson and bucolic Combeau valley. Latest cuddles (and even a few tears sometimes) to Prince, Baptiste, Zoé ... This is a goodbye!
