Activity description

One in two people in the world cannot see the Milky Way because of light and air pollution! In France, in the most protected places from this pollution, we can distinguish from 3000 to 5000 stars. It is in one of these places that Marc de Rando Terre d'Azur invites you to follow him to see the sky as you have never seen it before...

In addition to being a huge playground and discovery area, with multiple climatic and historical influences that hides a unique diversity of fauna and flora in France; the Mercantour National Park is committed to preserving the night sky, currently working to obtain the label "International Star Sky Reserve".
The outings proposed by Marc are part of this approach. Their objective is to reveal the wonders of the sky and its secrets far from any light pollution.
He will introduce you to the main celestial objects that can be observed on the evening of the outing, which are very difficult to observe in an urban environment, and at the same time, snowshoeing!

A privileged moment where Marc will share with you all his knowledge of astronomy mythology and history, long distances, celestial objects, etc.
