Lans En Vercors

Map on/off

Lans En Vercors is a small mountain ski village where a friend relocated from Paris. Life is much different for his family in this small village where everyone focuses on outdoor sport. My friend took me for bike rides, farm visits, and a glorious hike on the Moliere ridge above the town. (2011)

My friend leads me on a bike ride through the fields of his small mountain village. Majestic views of the Alps can be found even in the middle of summer. I love the contrast of flowered fields and stark white mountains. This rustic ski refuge might still be used when this area becomes a blanket of white in winter. Beautiful views of the French Alps in the distance. In the valley below you can see the city of Grenoble.
