The attraction of this geographical region lies in the beauty of its landscapes, which are a blend of high mountains and Provençal scenery. Unique, magical locations offer breathtaking views, including the Ecrins and Queyras regional parks, Lake Serre-Ponçon and the Verdon Gorge. The Southern Alps abound with natural treasures for you to discover or revisit.

Summer or winter, the almost untamed nature of the Southern Alps is the ideal setting for sporting activities:
- the rapids are the destination of choice for kayaks, rafts and hydro-speeds;
- the mountain plateaux, paths and tracks are the arena for hikers;
- the high peaks are home to the resorts (Isola 200, Par Loup, Val d’Allos, Orcières, etc.) for winter sports lovers.
