Lying at the heart of the Norman Seine River Meanders Regional Nature Park, on the left bank of the Seine Estuary between Sainte-Opportune-la-Mare and Tancarville Bridge, the Vernier Marsh is a huge peat bog - the biggest in France, with its 4,500 hectares! - and a listed European area of ecological interest.
Occupying an old meander of the Seine, this peaceful and unspoilt area, made up of reed beds, peat bogs and humid prairies and home to beautiful Highland Cattle, is rich in important fauna and flora: plants such as alders, pollard willows, apple trees, wild orchids, reeds and irises; and wildlife such as grey herons, white swans, common teals, ospreys and other migrant birds. Along the paths and quiet little roads, discover all its natural treasures and traditional built heritage, made up of thatched cottages full of traditional charm...
Above view of the marsh Vernier is a flight of paragliding and hang gliding area, the wind from the northeast.
