The Colorado of Nice
The red canyons of Cians and Daluis, wonders of Nature
The Cians and the Daluis canyons are among the geological marvels of Europe!
Unique with their red rocks that resemble Colorado, they are testimonies of the creative capacities of Mother Nature. The road which passes through them is one of the most beautiful you can imagine, dotted with numerous balconies where you will stop.
This tour is also a journey through history with the discovery of Entrevaux, an antique roman city which became a strategic site of the kingdom of France, fortified and developed by the famous Vauban. At first look the visitor is impressed by the hilltop citadel and this impression will only magnify during your visit.
Between the 2 canyons is nestled Peone! A pure jewel of the Southern Alps, this mountain village is a testimony of centuries of isolation, a place you will not forget. Hundreds of meters above, Valberg is one of the oldest ski resorts in France, one of the sunniest as well, where we will stop for a promenade on the « planetary path » between the Sun and Neptune.
Your guide will take you to an abandoned sheepfold of the 18th century, providing you a taste of real life in the « high country », and also offering a unique panorama of the Southern Alps.
A tour made of beauty!
