Drôme is brimming with exceptional natural sites. Once such place is the Archiane Cirque, to the south of the Vercors massif, a dozen kilometres north of Châtillon-en-Diois. Its immense limestone cliffs tower over the Diois landscape and offer a stunning spectacle. That's why this place is particularly popular with hikers and climbers.

At the foot of these cliffs lies the little hamlet of Archiane. It's the starting point of a marked path that will take you around the site. On a journey of around 3 hours, you can admire unspoilt landscapes on a trail combining rocks, undergrowth and box trees. A hike where authenticity meets tranquillity...

The Archiane Cirque is also the habitat of many animals that visitors can watch. These include the Alpine ibex, griffon vulture and bearded vulture, reintroduced respectively in 1989, 2007 and 2010. Seeing them thrive in this exceptional environment is quite simply magical!
