Touring in France

France has 48 regional nature parks. These large rural areas encompass several adjacent communes and cover over 20,00sq miles. Each of these territories has its own identity, shaped by a common natural and cultural heritage. By developing these in such a way as to improve facilities whilst respecting the balance of nature, the regional nature parks aim to preserve their natural treasures, skills and traditions.

These regional nature parks encompass a wide range of French landscapes, all of which are rich habitats for the native species including peregrine falcon, lynx, common crane and harbour seal. Tourism in these parks therefore favours sustainable approaches.You can discover all these parks online with the France-Voyage guide. Here you can find features the regional nature parks of the Camargue, Chartreuse, Luberon, Perche, Upper Jura, the Auvergne Volcanoes and many more.

Away from the countless signposted hiking paths, the rivers, torrents, gorges and waterfalls provide a wonderful opportunity to indulge in white water sports like canoe-kayak and canyoning. For the thrillseekers, the mountain areas are ideal for rock climbing and mountaineering.

These parks are unique across Europe, places to discover exceptional natural environments.
