HIKING IN DENT D'OCHE
HIKING IN DENT D'OCHE
This 8 hour day trip focuses on finding the herds of wild Alpine Ibex living in the area of Dent d'Oche. We will also watch and photograph birds, as we will have good chances to see the Golden Eagle, Common Kestrel, Peregrine Falcon, etc.
Located in Haute-Savoie, France, close to Lake Geneva, Dent d'Oche is a stunning mountain of the French Alps. The view is absolutely breathtaking. You can see Lake Geneva, the Jura and the Alps.
In this nature wonderland live good numbers of Alpine Ibex. We are able to encounter them almost every single time. Approaching them slowly and with respect, it is possible to have them coming only a few meters from us. This is an incredible wildlife experience.
