Geology of the southern Vercors massif

The Vercors is made up of a variety of limestone rocks formed during long phases of sedimentation around 100 million years ago. Its marine origin is attested by the presence of numerous fossils, so keep your eyes peeled!

The interior of the massif is made up of wooded plateaux and lush green valleys for magnificent walks. The sheer cliffs that surround it make it a veritable natural limestone citadel, with numerous via-ferrata and climbing routes.
