Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges information

Head away from the crowds into the serene Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges, 3000 sq km of pristine greenery in the southern Vosges.

In summer, hang-gliders take to the skies, cyclists roll through pristine countryside and walkers can pick from 10,000km of marked paths, including GRs (grandes randonnées ; long-distance hiking trails). When the snow settles, three dozen inexpensive skiing areas offer modest downhill and superb cross-country skiing.
