Must-Sees in the Trièves

Passing through the gateway of Grenoble city into Trièves country, let yourself be transported by the glorious mountain landscapes between Vercors and Dévoluy, by the sense of history all around you and the freedom to explore!

The Trièves is a land of awe-inspiring diversity. Take the time to enjoy its landscapes but also to discover its hidden treasures, two of which are among the 7 wonders of the Dauphiné. Via the Réserve Naturelle Nationale des Hauts-Plateaux du Vercors, you can take in the Mont Aiguille and the Grand Veymont mountains as well as the East Balcony of the Vercors, where the ski station Gresse-en-Vercors gently nestles.

In the heart of the Trièves and its picturesque villages, the Musée du Trièves will educate you about the history of Mens village –  a Protestant stronghold, and a centre for the Resistance, among other things. You may follow in the footsteps of Jean Giono, the French author, under the eye of the Dévoluy massif and its peaks, the Obiou and the Grand Ferrand.

Last but not least, let yourself be cast away on the ever present thermal winds of Lake Monteynard-Avignonet,  succumb to the attraction of its turquoise waters, and tremble a little as you walk across the Lake’s two Himalayan footbridges!
