    Abondance

    Culminating at 2432 m altitude, the Mont de Grange dominates the Abondance valley. The massif is part of the European network Natura 2000 (1,261 hectares) since 2003 and is a game reserve.

    The most discreet hikers can observe chamois, marmots, ptarmigan, foxes … As well as many mountain flowers.

    Natura 2000 is a network of protected natural sites across Europe, identified for the rarity or fragility of their wild species, and the natural habitats that house them. The objective is to preserve the biodiversity of these spaces in the long term without banishing all human activities and to enhance the natural heritage of this territory. Natura 2000 is not a nature reserve in the strict sense.
