The Vosges, unspoilt nature
An outdoor vacation paradise
Divided between the Vosges du Nord nature park and the Ballons des Vosges nature park, the Vosges stretches across sumptuous, wild and wooded landscapes, hollowed out by valleys where a taste for tradition is cultivated. With hundreds of kilometers of trails to discover on foot or by mountain bike, this region, which has managed to stay away from modernism, is a paradise for outdoor sports, including water sports on Lake Gérardmer and the Moselle River. The hiking possibilities are endless, whether you stay deep in the valleys or tackle the rounded peaks of the Vosges massif. From the Hohneck, views of the Vosges and Alsace will leave you speechless.
Our campsite is located in the Vallons des Vosges. In the Vallons des Vosges, you’re definitely in hiking country. That’s why we offer you our mountain bike area with its 380 km of marked trails, our hiking trails combining forest paths and views of the surrounding valleys, and our GR de pays. Mountain bikes and VTCs can be hired from the tourist office in Bruyeres.
CULTURAL AND WELLNESS VISITS TO SPA RESORTS
But there’s much more to the Vosges than its unspoilt nature. The region is dotted with towns and villages offering many reasons to visit, from Xonrupt to Épinal and Bresse. Not forgetting Alsace, whose treasures await you on the other side of the Vosges passes. In the heart of this vineyard of tempting appellations, let yourself be seduced by the flower-filled balconies and half-timbered houses of Colmar or Kayserberg. Finally, enjoy the benefits of the waters of the Vosges at the spas of Vittel and Plombières-les-Bains.
The Vosges will delight food lovers with its many gastronomic specialities, from cheeses such as Munster to mirabelle plums in all their forms, from tarts to spirits. Let yourself be tempted by a brimbelle tart (wild blueberries from the Vosges) or tofailles (made with potatoes and bacon). All accompanied by a succulent Alsace wine.
