A mosaic of landscapes , alternating open alpine pastures, high-altitude forests and long cliffs.
Local history is strongly influenced by the presence of the Carthusian Order, and the long historical dispute.
In the Chartreuse, hiking is the main activity. The park has marked a number of circuits dotted with the orientation maps and information :
climb to Chamechaude and the Charmant Som, hike between villages, explore hamlets and superb panoramic vews and follow routes throw Savoie's vineyards. In the winter, you can find snow-shoe and cross-country ski routes and downhill ski slopes at 7 resorts in the Chartreuse range.
