Visited with friends - a 30 min trek to get there, weather was amazing. Once there, the view is beautiful and makes for some good pictures.

You can come here alone or with friends, even if there is a bit of snow. The path is a bit slippery when wet, so be prepared. The view of the little canyon is amazing, although I never went at this time, I assume the...More

The area around Creux Du Van offers some great hikes. I like to climb from Noiraigue, which is a short steep climb lasting around an hour. The views over Creux Du Van (on a clear day) are simply stunning. There is a restaurant 5 mins...More

It's a nice place, and the access to it is very easy (if that's what your after). Anyone can take a stroll at the top of the cliff and enjoy the views. When we visited we were caught by a sudden storm; we got very...More
