Vercors mountain range

 

Limestone fortress, along the east of Grenoble, the Vercors, swallowing the setting sun, emerges in shadow. From Sassenage to Die, the Vercors is much more than a massif, the Vercors is a country. Variety of landscapes and diversity of atmospheres, always authentic and sometimes wild, the gems of Vercors, at the gates of Grenoble and Valence, offer you pure moments of disconnection.

A land of history

From this fortress, history has sculpted the landscape. It is an entire architectural and cultural heritage in which we immerse ourselves: typical villages, vertiginous roads built in the 19th century in the rock, abbeys and remains of the Resistance which offer the opportunity for instructive visits. Many museums and educational panels relate the highlights of the history of Vercors.

In winter

Dressed in its white coat, the Vercors winter is sparkling. Temple of cross-country skiing, the padded atmosphere, snow-covered roads, the morning mist shrouding the plateaus and the twilight lights on the summits of the Vercors will amaze you. Whether there is snow or not for the practice of cross-country skiing, Nordic skiing, ski touring, dog sledding and alpine skiing in the many family resorts, winter is here to be savored with eyes and heart.
