In the Chartreuse Natural Park

Plateau des Petites Roches

The Plateau des Petites Roches is a group of 3 villages in the heart of the Chartreuse Nature Park, set in a setting of outstanding beauty: a veritable natural balcony, overlooking the Grésivaudan valley and opening onto a horizon of peaks: Belledonne, Vercors, Mont-Blanc...

The Plateau des Petites Roches is a popular starting point for hikes in the Chartreuse region, as well as being a renowned hang-gliding site. Every year it hosts the legendary Coupe Icare, a not-to-be-missed event in hang-gliding.
