A thoroughly interesting open air museum. There is a shorter route which we took ( I would think that was enough). Spectacular colours and a most photogenic place.

Pretty easy hike in beautiful surroundings. We did the long hike which was easily completed within the 50 minutes that stands for it.

We loved walking the trails through the ocra mines, the colors and beauty of the area. It's a bit of a hike on a hot day, but it's a perfect break from all the wine and cheese!

Luckily we were staying in Roussillon and we went to the park early one morning. By 11:00 the tour buses were arriving and there were a lot of people touring. The park is beautiful and an easy hike. Tip: 1) go early in the AM; 2) don't wear any shoes that you don't want to get the ochre colored dust/soil... More

I've been to similar-looking Sedona, Arizona, but this was BETTER! After a scenic drive down country roads to get to Roussillon, we easily parked in the on-site parking lot. What a beautiful site! The orange cliffs and rocks are just stunning. We paused to let our kids play in the orange dust along the trail. There is a short walk... More

Good value for money, very sympathetically adapted for visitors so that although there are set paths and steps they don't intrude on the views. Against the ocre, the blue of the sky and the greens of the trees are startlingly bright. Most suited to able bodied visitors at there are lots of steps.

Just a short walk from the town centre, this is a lovely visit. Quite unique. Marvellous colours. Lots of steps. Well worth the miniscule entry fee.

While visiting Provence we traveled thru the hill towns of the Luberon. What a treat to experience this amazing place. The town itself is just as charming as it gets...but the unexpected walking path we came upon thru the ochre trails was a highlight of the day.
