Must see · Forest · Park
At Creux du Van, hike around an amphitheatre-shaped natural rock formation situated within a large nature reserve. Created by natural water erosion from a glacier millions of years ago, the semi-circular formation is 1,400 m (4,593 ft) wide and 150 m (492 ft) deep. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, such as lynx and ibex. The formation offers views from above and can be accessed by car or foot. Stop by one of the farms with animals or one of the small restaurants on your way up. Be careful, as the area is not fenced, and the drop is steep.
