Treetop Adventure Park

Come and try out this adventure trail in the trees, at the Parc des Ecureuils, right next to the village.
Swing, like Tarzan, from one point to another. Or else, cycle the whole length of the rope rigging, 20 metres above the ground! Thrills guaranteed! 4 circuits available, for all ages. Open every day.

Chairlift rides

At 200 metres from the campsite, take the Plateau chairlift to an altitude of 2,000 m to see the marmots, flowers, the communal flock, the panoramic view, and watch a paraglider taking off.
Taking the chairlift, experience this magical scenic viewpoint with its 360° panorama from the 2,300m-high ridge, go for refreshments at the Dormilleuse fort, at 2,500m, or you can go down the other side towards the high-altitude Col lakes.
Open every day during July and August and weekends only during off-season.


200 metres from the Village: paragliding school, and introductory flight and courses available.
Montclar is a paragliding mecca. The site, which benefits from a good height differential and an exceptional climate, is much appreciated by clubs. Numerous competitions are organised here. “Ushuaia: The Ultimate Adventure”, the famous TV programme on adventure and nature, was filmed here.


Numerous lakes, rivers, and high-altitude lakes are accessible, roughly 1.5 km from the campsite; fishing licences are required.
On the lake of "Le Lauzet sur Ubaye", 10 km away, fishing is free.

Horse riding

You can take lessons at an equestrian farm, 5km from the village, or go hacking and trekking to explore our beautiful valley, a land of contrasts.


From our campsite, you can explore numerous hiking trails, either in valleys or along ridges.
The activity leaders will suggest some magnificent walks for you. In Reception, we can lend you route sheets and maps. You can also book hikes with a guide. You'll be amazed by the diversity and beauty of our unspoilt countryside, and by the stunning views that you will discover from the ridges!

Mountain-bike trails

Just 200m from the village, mountain biking lessons and mountain bikes for hire, maps for hire, circuits using GPS or guided hikes with chairlift included or not included.

Grass scootering

Just 200m from the village, you can hire a downhill grass scooter for use on the resort's pistes. Guided outings which go down to the lake (a descent of 1000m) can be arranged.

Cycle touring

500 metres from the village and we’re at the Col St Jean, which is the first of the 7 Alpine passes that you’ll be able to climb (la Bonette-Restefond 2,809 m, Allos, La Cayolle, Vars, and Larche). At each summit, a machine will enable you to record your passage and thus to obtain your certificate of the 7 passes! A real challenge! You will appreciate the cycle-tourism sign-posting on the kilometre markers!

Via Ferrata

50 km away, these are rocky routes, of Italian origin, which are made quite secure by a cable or metal steps. Novices must be accompanied by a guide. Booking required.


30km away you'll find 100 routes, ranging in difficulty from 4 to 8b, throughout the sector. 50km away, le Rocher de Céüse is a cliff 4km in length, between 30 and 130m high, with 400 routes ranging from 5a to 9a+.

Montclar bike park

Just 200 m from the campsite, the ski resort of St Jean MONTCLAR has created 8 downhill pistes, from blue to black, during which you descend by 600m. You go up by chairlift (detachable) and the journey takes 7 minutes.
