Description

For hikers in search of achingly beautiful landscapes, the Monts-Valin give you the region's highest accessible peaks.


In winter, it's a fat bike and cross-country skiing paradise. The Monts-Valin and ghostly Vallée des Fantômes serve up nature of such stunning beauty that you’ll want to stay overnight: in a hut, traditional cabin, or more unusual accommodations.


There's more than one way to answer the call of the wild.

The expression "On the northern borders" expresses the special soul of the Monts-Valin National Park, which protects and enhances a sample of the natural region of the Mont Valin massif. In summer, hiking, canoeing, fishing and holidaying are the star activities. In winter, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing and cross-country skiing allow hikers to meet "Mummies and Ghosts".

Open: June to October

The river Valin gives canoeists the opportunity to admire the mountain from a new angle.
