Discover Parc naturel régional du Vercors

Straddling the departments of Isère and Drome, here you can admire alpine fauna and flora in their natural state. From the 200m of altitude of the bed of Royans to the 2,341m summit of Grand Veymont, every stage of alpine life is represented in a pivotal location between the northern and southern Alps. All of this together makes for an exceptionally rich variety of flora (more than 1,800 species), not to mention fauna that is just as fascinating and dominated by some especially spectacular species - ibex, chamois, black grouse, large predatory birds? Plus some wild mountain sheep.
