The Bévéra Valley

Through the Bévéra a lush green valley

A lush green valley in the south of Mercantour National Park, it owes its name to the Bévéra river that runs through it. This tributary of the Roya originates in the Authion Massif at an altitude of 2,078 metres.

I loved travelling through the Bévéra Valley, a beautiful green valley with stunning gorges.  We were even able to swim in the river.  You feel like you’re part of nature, and that’s a sure way to relax and unwind!
