Between Grenoble, Briancon and Gap is the national park of Ecrins, in the territory of which there are at once 3 four-thousandths - Barre-des-Ecrins, Dome de Neige des Ecrins and Peak Lorik. The area of the park is occupied by pine and oak forests, alpine meadows; glaciers are located on the hills. There are more than 30 trails laid in the park which are in excellent condition. On the island of Corsica is the Kalanka National Park. It is a deep valley filled with the sea. The valley is surrounded by orange and pink rocks, which spectacularly rise above the sea line at an altitude of about 300 meters. The rocks were heavily eroded, and therefore took quite original and unusual forms. This unique and incredibly beautiful landscape is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
