“Park-therapy” in the Mont Avic NATURAL Park

Perhaps the term has not yet entered regular language, but when we speak of ‘park-therapy’ we are referring to specific symptoms: at the Mont Avic Nature Park, an experience that will enable you to observe herds of ibex and chamois, the flora of the high-altitude area (edelweiss, gentians, buttercups, columbines), the wetland flora (fresh water buttercups, orchids, sedges), ancient forests of mountain pine, larch and Swiss pine and a succession of Alpine lakes. All this will allow you to feel at one with nature.
