The park is a mosaic of landscapes in which open pastures, mountain forests, and long cliffs define the land. The nature reserve hosts fauna and flora that include a wealth of different species, including the very rare Tengmalm owl.
The park encourages the development of economic activities that respect the environment and preserve precious traditional and agricultural know how.
Although some traditional activities (timber harvesting to build royal marine ships, hemp growing, metallurgy, etc.) have disappeared from the park, the production of the famous eponymous liqueur remains, as well as numerous passionate artisans and authentic local products.
Hiking is the king of outdoor activities in Chartreuse.
The park has marked off many paths, dotted with lookout points and informative signs.
Hikers can climb up to Chamechaude or Charmant Som, trek from village to village, and cross the Savoie vineyards.
You can discover the park on foot or by car, taking a journey into the park's natural and cultural richness and diversity.
As a tourist respectful of the natural beauty and human activities going on here, you will help contribute to the balance of a living territory.
