Parc Naturel Regional Du Vercors - Review
A massif of mountains and plateaus, the park is one France’s most beautiful landscapes. Whether you go there to spelunk, hike, ski or climb, or simply drive through its roads, you’ll quickly realise that this is unlike any other place you’ve been to before. The twisting, climbing roads have an otherworldliness to it, something you have to be careful to not let affect you (the drive can be treacherous at times). There a number of charming villages along the road.
The park is broadly divided into three area:
- The Coulmes: Which is the most forested, most plateaud.
- The Northen Plateaus (Quatre Montagnes) – most popular with tourists for skiing. There are four villages ehre - Autrans, Méaudre, Lans and Villard de Lans, that still maintain a very traditional mountain lifestyle.
- The Western Plateaus (Vercos Dromois) – numerous in number, but smaller in size, these plateaus offer spectacular vistas of plains, mountains and canyons.

Parc Naturel Regional Du Vercors, Grenoble Reviews
This park is breathtaking! Near the Alps but so much less known. The hike to Grand Veymont, highest point of the region, is not difficult and absolutely amazing. It offers stunning views on the summit and the hike itself is also very interesting. Highly recommended!
Really great place. I do speleology and this is a paradise for us but it's good for hiking too. And let's not forget the French food and vine.
If you get the right weather this is a great destination. Very green, tons of trees surrounded by clouds, stunning views and food all around. End of June early July is best for flowers and weather. Plenty of activity, in particular hiking.
Must visit. There is tons to do. Walking, cycling, driving etc. Caves to visit, memorials, coffee shops and quaint towns.
I went there cycling uphill from seyssinet and followed some nature trails. The trails indeed take you inside the forests and time and again you can have look at the valley below with the city of Grenoble nestled within it. Also there are routes which lead you to sassenage and you can visit the château there on the way.
