What can you do during your stay at Camping La Rochette?

If you want to recharge your batteries and get away from it all, venture into the Queyras valley. Particularly sunny and full of activities combining nature, hiking, sport and discovery, your stay in the Guillestrois will leave no room for boredom. With hiking boots on and suitcases packed, all that’s left to do is plan!

Hiking and nature

Guillestre is the ideal base for nature lovers, hikers and slow tourism enthusiasts.
In the heart of the Hautes-Alpes, take the time to discover the region at your own pace and admire the landscapes combining relief and vegetation, divided between the Queyras Regional Park, whose landscapes are among the most beautiful and highest in the Alps, and the Ecrins National Park. On foot or by bike, explore the many paths and tracks between passes and valleys. There’s a wide range of circuits to suit all ages and abilities. It’s a rejuvenating activity to share with the whole family!

Nature and discovery around Eygliers

A ten-minute drive from the campsite takes you to the sublime village of Eygliers and its many hilltop hamlets. In addition to its particularly high level of sunshine, this village, rich in ancient heritage, rises to an altitude of 2,617 metres, at the foot of the foothills of the Catinat ridges. Its broad palette of colours is also home to a wealth of flora and fauna, including the region’s star animal: the marmot! For a chance to spot them, follow the signposted trail from Eygliers-gare. Not very shy, these little creatures can be seen from April to October (and like their peace and quiet to be preserved!). On the higher ground, you can see the historic fort of Mont-Dauphin, overlooking the valley.

Eygliers lake and leisure centre

Need to spend some time on holiday? Head to the Plan d’Eau d’Eygliers! Inaugurated in 1972 and accessible free of charge, this superb site is also the gateway to a host of water-based activities, including kayaking, pedal-boating, paddle-boating, canoeing… In summer, you can take a dip in the lake, where bathing is supervised. For our lazy tourists, the beach is equipped to keep the whole family occupied: play area for the little ones, picnic area, restaurants, trampolines, fitness trail… Everything you need for a great day out in the Durance Valley. Fishing is available all year round (permit required). In summer, the site offers a range of activities designed to help you discover the art of fishing.

Fortified village of Mont-Dauphin

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this architectural masterpiece by Vauban bears witness to a rich historical past. As you stroll along its ramparts, you’ll enjoy a unique panorama of the Queyras mountains, glistening in the southern sunshine. Named in homage to the king’s son by Vauban and strategically located, the town was originally built to reinforce the Alpine defences under the reign of Louis XIV. Since then, it has seen many wars, and is now a place steeped in history that you can explore at your own pace.

Simoust waterfall

For a breath of fresh air with the family, take a stroll and admire the impressive Simoust waterfall. The 50-metre-high waterfall is fed by water from the Canal de la Chalp, which rises in Ceillac. You can get there from the Plateau de Simoust. A natural spectacle that will not leave you without memories.

Sensational sports!

In the Queyras region, discover a whole host of activities to contrast with days spent relaxing. Try your hand at rafting on the wild Durance river. Several kilometres long, the courses on offer are also suitable for beginners. From a different angle, enjoy time with friends or family in a picture-postcard setting. If you’re a white-water enthusiast, you can also explore the rocky scenery on a canyoning trip. On the Guil or at the St-Clément white-water base, there’s plenty to choose from! Let us guide you…

Via ferrata

Looking for a little more height? Then take a look at our Via Ferrata routes! Suitable for all abilities, they are the ideal compromise between climbing and hiking, and all in complete safety! Breathtaking scenery will fill the air as you climb the rock faces. Overlooking the Gorges de la Durance, all you have to do is get your gear and enjoy a unique experience in the heart of nature!

Mountain biking

Now that the snow has melted, it’s time to get out and explore the mountains on your mountain bike! It’s the ideal activity for groups or families, and the perfect way to get some exercise. In the heart of a dense larch forest in the Vallée du Guillestrois, hurtle down the mountain at your own pace in a lush green setting and take advantage of an exceptional setting to recharge your batteries.
