Guess: what is Grenoble’s largest, and locals’ favourite playground? La Bastille, of course! Let us guide you up there: you may either hike to the top, or quietly ride with the cable car.
At the foot of the towering limestone cliffs of the Vercors spreads a rich and diverse territory. As part of the Vercors Regional Park, these protected areas are the ideal backdrop for a hike. Follow the marked paths, climb up a bit, and admire the sprawling city of Grenoble at your feet. Somewhere in between history and nature, discover the must-see sites like the Chateau and Cisterns of Sassenage. Of course, wild natural places await as well, places steeped in legend like the mysterious Ardente Fountain…
Sappey-en-Chartreuse opens the way into the Chartreuse mountains, just 15 minutes from Grenoble. Its wild nature is carefully preserved in the Chartreuse Regional Nature Park.
Grenoble makes it all possible: yes, you can love city life and wildlife at the same time, enjoy winter and summer altogether, mountain hikes and contemporary art exhibitions on a same day.
At the crossroads of paths that lead to the highest of summits, Vizille opens onto the Oisans and Belledonne mountains and lies between the two. This hilly landscape is perfect for hikes and is home to The Vizille Estate, with its park and Museum of the French Revolution. Open the doors and come on in.
