The start of the walk isn’t easy to find - either start from a fire road behind the lower restaurants, or follow the route from the top car park. Both end up at the same place. This was mostly a fairly easy walk on well-marked...More

Great mountain area with very good activities like canyoning. The canyoning is very good and great fun.

The hike was in one word ‘fabuleuse’. Stunning views whereever you go. However, directions are minimal, to say the best. One advice: take the ‘trou de la bombe’ hike. But be aware that this is the path with the red paint on trees and rocks....More

Nice , well marked trial for a whole family! Crowded place but worth seeing. Good point to see two neighbouring monuntains. Shorter and easier trial marked only with footprints and stone piramids on Punta di San Petru. Excellent views!!!

We had only half a day and decided to walk the 'Trou de la Bombe' trail. The trail is easy and it was quite busy at the time we did it. At the end, there's the whole in the rock. It's nice and the overlook...More
