    Majestic and proud, the Vercours commands respect with its superb landscapes and steep and difficult access between cliffs and canyons where you can see grandiose scenery and waterfalls. Nature is everywhere, alive, fragile, diversified and magnificent. The largest natural reserve in France is here in the heart of the massif. The Vercours has a rich history and invites the hiker to discover the remains of its ancient religious wars and, more recently and tragically, those of the Resistance during the last war.
