Orcières is located in the Champsaur & Valgaudemar valleys, and more precisely in the Haut-Champsaur. It is also what constitutes its richness by the variety of the landscapes and the multitude of atmospheres to be discovered !
The Champsaur valley, a beautiful patchwork quilt of fields and hedgerows spread over gently rolling hillsides, and Valgaudemar, a deep and dramatic Alpine valley, often compared to a Himalayan landscape. Enjoy the liveliness and warmth of the local people and the tranquility and solitude of nature. Experience the intimacy of a village festival and the openness of a vast natural wilderness. A gentle mountain environment accessible to everyone, and for the initiated, a true high mountain experience. It's an area of unparalleled contrasts !
Around Orcières, the territory of Champsaur is first revealed by the valley of Champoléon, where flows the Drac Blanc and nestles many hamlets with discreet charm. Then opens the door of multiple hikes in the heart of the Ecrins national park, with the most initiated itinerant itineraries linking Orcières, Champoléon, Valgaudemar or even Freissinières and Vallouise...
