Mercantour National Park
In order to protect their wildlife, the central territories of the Mercantour massif were first classed as a Royal Hunting Preserve in 1859 by King Victor-Emmanuel II, then made Hunting Preserve by order of the prefect in 1946 and finally a Reserve by ministerial order in 1953. The national park was created in 1979.

Each year the park attracts a growing number of visitors, with more than 800,000 annually, drawn by the hiking, mountaineering and ski touring... Amongst the most popular sites are the Merveilles Valley, with its 40,000 prehistoric carvings, Allos Lake; the largest natural high altitude lake in Europe and le Boréon, with its larch forests and sub-alpine atmosphere.

The park boasts 600 km of marked out pathways including the GR 5, the GR 52A, and the GR 56.
