Our Region, Royans Vercors
Located in the Vercors Regional Natural Park between mountains and rivers, the Royans is characterized by its lush greenery.
A multitude of springs gush there at the foot of the limestone citadel of Vercors.
One of them formed the majestic circus of Combe Laval.
Protected as a classified site, Combe Laval is the ideal place to hike with the sound of the river and discover and flora and fauna.
Not far from there, you will find at the edge of the water the suspended village of Pont en Royans, where the colorful houses are reflected in the waters of the Bourne.
A hikers' paradise, the Vercors is a unique and idyllic mountainous area. It includes vast expanses of grasslands and forests as well as the opportunity to venture to peaks with remarkable perspectives.
Looking up towards the sky, you will surely have the chance to see a golden eagle, unless it is a peregrine falcon or a lyre vulture.
