Discover Réserve naturelle nationale des Aiguilles Rouges

An ideal balcony over the Mont Blanc mountain chain, this protected 13mi² area is also worth visiting for its fauna (marmots, ibex, more than 70 species of migratory birds) and for its flora (peat bogs, moors with rhododendrons, spruce on the southern slopes, larches on the northern slopes).
Visitors follow a botanical path through this rich biotope, with Mont-Blanc in the background.
