Vosges

A haven of peace in the heart of unspoilt, warmly welcoming natural surroundings, the Vosges Massif is a favourite destination for hikers, outdoor sportspeople and lovers of wide open spaces. You feel in harmony with yourself there, and that can’t be bad!


For lovers of the great outdoors

A welcoming, vibrant and invigorating mountain range, the Vosges Massif makes a great destination whatever the time of year, whether you come with your family, alone or as a couple, to explore at your own pace and as the mood takes you. Your next experience awaits you!

Roam two Regional Nature Parks, including a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and make your way along more than 16,500 km of hiking trails in discovery of the Massif’s outstanding fauna and flora. Get on first name terms with clouds at the top of the “Ballons” and on the Crest Road, explore the Valley of Lakes, climb the Sacred Le Donon Mountain, keep a lookout for red deer, go in search of wild myrtle berries… On foot or by mountain bike, you’ll want it all over again!

Chamois

Answer the call of the mountains

The Vosges Massif puts on a new face with every season. The return of fine weather brings an explosion of outdoor sports with it, including paragliding, night walks, and paddleboarding on lakes worthy of Canadian landscapes. As you round a cliffside, you’ll catch a glimpse of chamois frolicking among the daffodils or gentians, depending on the season.

In winter, with its landscapes of snow-clad fir trees and shimmering ice-covered lakes, the Vosges Massif whisks you away into a fairy tale. Set off to try your hand at some of the Nordic activities on offer at its twenty mountain resorts, from the ever-popular cross-country skiing and rather more unusual pleasures of horse tubing to slopes suitable for all levels of downhill skiing. And after having filled up on excitement, take a table at one of the convivial farm inns and enjoy some of the products of the local terroir
