The Font d'Urle Plateau...

 

Magnificent, stunning, wild...these are the words that come to mind when trying to describe the Font d’Urle alpine meadow.

An atmospheric place where you can experience the fear of wide emptiness, come face to face with chamois and see beauty in the structure of the cairns...
An open space where you can breathe in the wind, the scent of the flowers, the vast grassland and the wild horses...

A place full of surprises where shafts, caves or a carpet of daffodils are waiting to be discovered at each turn...

Also, a place of history that tells of exploration and caving, as well as wild storms and the tough working life of shepherds.

Here is the easy route called ‘Le Sentier du Karst’ and a booklet to help you explore this area better. > Icon "The Karst track" (1.2 MB)

In winter, the plateau can be crossed on snowshoes or by dog sled, and is located close to the Chaud Clapier ski resort, with its areas for alpine and cross-country skiing.
