The mountains

SkiIt is often forgotten that the name of the department includes the word Alps and these are not small mountains with the highest summit of the department being more than 3,000 meters high.

SnowIn winter, skiing is less than three quarters of an hour in the small ski resorts of Greoliere des neiges and Audibergue . These resorts are perfect for an afternoon of family skiing . And, for the fittest, the three Mercantour stations of  Auron , Isola 2000 and Valberg  have nothing to envy from the villages further north.

VerdonIn summer the area is full of wonderful hikes. Mercantour Park and the Canyon du Verdon are the crown jewels of the area but there are  also plenty of smaller tours to be made in the area, including the gorges du loup, the canyon du  Cian , and the Siagne Valley.
