Ecrins National Park

Introduction

Covering 918 km² (354 sq mi), Écrins National Park extends over most of the Dauphiné Alps in Massif des Écrins. It is comprised between Grenoble, Briançon and Gap.

Peaking at the Barre des Ecrins ( 4,102 m / 13,458 ft) the park boasts 50 mountains over 3,000 metres (9900 ft) and over 20 glaciers. It attracts 800,000 tourists each year, and is one of the six natural regions in France to have been awarded the European Diploma of Protected Areas.

Approximately two thirds of the park lie in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, and the other third in the Rhône-Alples region.
