|Why not stay at the Airotel Pyrenees to vsiit the Pyrenees National Park ?|
We have attempted to draw a map showing the approximate locations of the different national parks relative to some of our campsites :
The Ecrins National Park is located between Grenoble, Gap and Briançon. It has 740 kilometres of walks and includes peaks like La Meije (3,983 m) and La Grave (3,946 m). You may see chamois, ibexes, marmots and golden eagles while walking ! The Ecrins National Park.
The Mercantour National Park is where you can explore the “Vallée des Merveilles” with its 40,000 prehistoric engravings as well as visiting the largest altitude lake in Europe. You may even catch a glimpse of a Wolf !
The Port-Cros national park stretches between Port-Cros and Bagaud islands and is the first marine European park. The small town of Port-Cros has a castle and an ancient harbour.
La Vanoise National Park was created in 1856 to protect ibexes against the hunters. The ibexes are now numerous but you can expect to see other wildlife like chamois and golden eagles.
The Pyrenees national nature park has high mountain peaks and many high altitude lakes and a rich variety of flora and fauna, including raptors, lynx and the last wild bears in France. (Is that true ? - have any of you seen a bear there ? Maybe not a good place to pitch a tent !!)
If you like the sound of these areas and enjoy wildlife, walking or scenery then why not book one of our campsites near these areas.
