Description

During this beautiful weekend, the highlands of the Vercors massif will offer you an exceptional wild environment for the practice of snowshoeing.

But these days of snowshoes hiking are also full of history: that of the maquis of the Vercors and the ascent of Mont Aiguille. The high plateaus of the Vercors Regional Park Conservation Area are also the home of preserved fauna and flora, and they exude an incredible sense of wholeness.
