The site of Arvière
Located 6km from the campsite, it is an exceptional natural site at the foot of the Grand Colombier massif
L’Arvière is the name given to the 12 km long river that crosses the site. It is famous for fishermen looking for trout.
A change of scenery is guaranteed for this walk. A loop of 8 km (3h30) is possible from the car park located near the welcome sign. A forest house transformed into an inn will welcome you in all conviviality and will make you discover the local products. In this magnificent setting, you will find the remains of a chartreuse.
With a surface area of 370 hectares, a great variety of reliefs is added to the diversity of the species of fir trees, spruces, beeches, maples, ash trees and even some fruit trees. About fifty chamois, a few lynx, roe deer and hinds live in the forest.
The Devil’s Claw Biological Reserve is an old forest named after the remarkable size of the trees. This part of the forest is left to evolve freely, without any management by man. This 100-hectare area is home to more than 54 species of lichens, 39 species of birds, and 21 species of bats.
