Full of nature
Open your lungs and breathe! Once this first step is done, all that remains is to indulge in the outdoor activity of your choice. Amateurs or experienced? Looking for spaces in soft or performance mode? The relief and the climate of Haute Provence are naturally adapted to all your desires for nature.
From the summit of Estrop at an altitude of 2961m in Haute Bléone to the gentler reliefs of Verdon, or the Val de Durance, Haute-Provence is crisscrossed by an infinity of marked paths crossing through splendid and preserved spaces. Hiking is a way of life here, practiced by everyone all year round.
The largest mountain bike area in France
By bike, the hike is available with or without electric assistance. As a family, cycling becomes a pretext for discovering remarkable natural sites. Take a walk in the clues of Barles or the fields of lavender...
Mountain biking takes on an air of adventure in the "black earth" world famous spot for insiders. L'EVO Bike Park in Digne-les-Bains is the ideal ground for sustained training! Roaming is king on the major marked crossings such as Alpes-Provence, Transverdon and the Chemins du Soleil.
All the emotions
Halfway between heaven and earth, if you are looking for thrills, let yourself be seduced by one of our two via ferrata in Digne les Bains and Prads Haute Bléone. These vertigo hikes can be supervised by climbing and mountain professionals for safe practice.
But let's take a little height to join our world champion and Dignois François Ragolski at the controls of his paragliding. The aerology being exceptional in Haute Provence, this is the opportunity to try the experience! From the sky, this sun-drenched nature throughout the year will take on another dimension.
The water sports are not to be outdone since Haute Provence is bounded to the north by the lake of Serre Ponçon and to the south by the lake of Holy Cross of Verdon. From the pedal boat to the Gateway spinning at full speed on the turquoise expanses, everyone has their own pace!
Of a generous nature conducive to the development of the body, Haute Provence invites you both to discover its landscapes but also to give free rein to your desires: golf, peach, climbing… Everything is possible here!
