Best time to visit is 1 hour before thru 1 hour after sunset. Bring your camera, sturdy shoes and a walking stick if you use one. Disabled can not make this walk so don't buy a ticket. There are two paths to choose, a long or shorter one. From the 1st viewing area the ocher cliffs are striking and very... More

We chose the long one that said 50 minutes but it did not take that long depending on how fast you walk... More

The name for the town of Roussillon came from the color of the cliffs from which much of the red pigment used in paints was found. The walk takes about a half hour and offers you an easy path or a more strenuous and longer one. The entrance is just a short uphill walk from the main road located in... More

This amazing spot is the place where ocher was mined for decades, and what is left behind is the most lovely soil imaginable.

What is interesting about the park is that depending on the time of day, your perspective of the cliffs and the colors can vary. We visited late afternoon and the contrast of light between the sunlit sections and shaded area was interesting. In some ways it reminded us of our visit to the Valley of Fire state park in Nevada.... More

This place in so surreal. The colours of the rocks are so bright and vibrant, its so pretty and considering its only 2.50 to walk round, you can't go wrong. It's a lot of steps and hills and make sure you wear suitable footwear as its sandy and slippery but its an amazing experience. Roussillon is a beautiful place to... More

We would have enjoyed spending more time on this - allow enough time for the one hour walk. We got there 30 min before closing and so missed the full walk. Well worth the visit!

While in Roussillon we decided to visit the famous ochre cliffs. A product of nature they offer a beautiful view ow what she can provide. The cliffs are viewed via two hilly walkways; one of 35 minutes and the of 50 minutes. The cost for either is 2.50€/person. The walk, although amazing, is strenuous and is best done when the...
