Discover Sisteron's natural environment

The Rocher de la Baume, the Gorges de la Méouge and the Grotte du Trou de l'Argent are natural wonders of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, presenting a fascinating picture of geological beauty and untouched nature.

The Rocher de la Baume, near our campsite, is the focal point of Sisteron. This immense rock face consists of vertical layers that have been compressed. This gives this rock formation its rather unusual appearance. The steep cliffs are used as climbing walls, so it is not uncommon to see people hanging from the rock face. Not far from here, the Gorges de la Méouge offer a unique water experience. The Méouge River winds its way through impressive gorges, offering visitors the chance to swim. The turquoise water contrasts beautifully with the red cliffs and lush green forests, creating a breathtaking landscape.

The Grotte du Trou de l'Argent, near Sisteron, is a challenging hike, with 680 metres of climbing. The reward is well worth the effort, with a breathtaking finish that literally merges into the rock, before offering remarkable views over the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence.
