The Vercors massif is a French mountainous massif of the Pre-Alps, which dominates the Drôme and Isère. Due to its calcareous geological nature, the relief is made up of cliffs, valleys, ridges and gorges, forming a complex and very interesting ensemble to visit!
In the Vercors massif, there are many activities that can be practiced. In its waterways, you can face natural obstacles during canyoning sessions with family or friends. In summer, you can climb the cliffs of the massif, as well as hiking and horseback riding.
In winter, the Vercors massif is covered with a soft white mantle. From then on, you will be able to practice all kinds of activities such as ski joering (ski joering), snowshoe trekking or cross-country skiing. Sledding and downhill skiing are also activities that can be offered.
In the Vercors massif, there is a regional natural park with an astonishing biodiversity. The Vercors is a natural fortress, which extends between the Isère valley and the Diois, over more than 186,000 hectares. This limestone plateau has powerful shapes, softwood and beech forests, and a wide variation in altitude. In this immense space, wild nature still reigns and offers its splendid landscapes. At the bottom of the narrow gorges flow streams and rivers, then bordered by spectacular cliffs. The Vercors massif offers vast and open landscapes, as well as caves and natural chasms!
In the Vercors massif, several tourist sites await you, such as Les Grands Goulets. There are also some historical remains in the Museum of the Resistance of the Vercors, and at the memorial.

A museum of prehistory awaits them, as well as the old town of Die and the village of Saint-Nazaire-en-Royans and its magnificent aqueduct!
