The Vercors Regional Nature Park, an Eden of greenery. The largest nature reserve in France, the Vercors Massif, "citadel of freedom" for Paul Dreyfus, is a cradle of the humanist ideal. It enjoys the collective and concrete commitment of women and men who, through their activity, have opted to preserve their local area. It was certified under the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas in 2003. Earning this label made it possible both to recognize the quality of the actions undertaken or supported by the park and to define a framework for the future. You will discover exceptional natural landscapes such as high white cliffs carved out by erosion and products benefiting from the Vercors Regional Nature Park brand, which has a quality and tradition charter. Over the past 30 years, the nature park has been working to develop a network of walks and hikes which allow the various activities to thrive over more than 1,864 miles of perfectly marked and developed trails. Fishing, caving, canyoning or skiing are also among the many activities possible. Unforgettable getaways, a few miles from your hotel Première Classe Grenoble Nord Moirans.
