With a wealth of exceptional wild flora and fauna, the Mercantour National Park reveals sumptuous landscapes, framed by sea and mountain. As you hike you will meet chamois, mountain goats, marmots, eagles and bearded vultures. The iconic wolf is present in the Mercantour. In the heart of the park regulations are in place to reconcile exploration and respect of nature. The area of the park is made up of dynamic villages of character. Nearly 20,000 people live in the Mercantour.

The Mercantour National Park covers 1 615 km2 at an altitude of 490 metres (Gorges de la Bévera) to 3,143 m (Cime du Gélas) above sea level.
It stretches from east to west over 7 valleys and 2 départements, the Alpes-Maritimes and the Alpes- de-Haute-Provence.
