The Alpine Garden presents more than 250 species of flowers and plants of the alpine mountain level. In addition to the thematic tour, it offers every summer many activities for families.


The alpine flora, and more particularly that of Haute Maurienne, is exceptional, with endemic species especially on the site of Mont Cenis.
On nearly one hectare, the Alpine Garden presents these flowers and plants in free access.
For those who wish to learn more or to have fun discovering them in the company of a park ranger, a complete program of visits and activities is offered from mid-June to early September.
