Infos & Booking


I propose you a weekend around Villard-de-Lans in the Vercors massif, far from the classic tourist circuits, to enjoy the amazing spectacle of the deers in period of bellowing.

After an hour's walk, we'll be in the center of the forest to observe the deers in the middle of the bellowing. Verbal jousts, intimidations, everything is good to appropriate the harem of the hinds... We will bivouac on the spot in order to immerse ourselves to the maximum in this incredible atmosphere and not to miss anything of the show.

The portage is moderate: provide a backpack for the raid, your personal belongings and your meals.

If you are interested in observing animals, I also propose a hike with wildlife observation in the Vercors. But also other theme outings, like this heritage hike in Villard-de-Lans and a flora discovery outing.
