The Merlet animal Park offers you the opportunity to discover more than 80 mountain animals in their natural environment.

For a family stroll or a hike and for the finish: magnificent views and a rare place to discover. The Merlet Park is a must see site for both summer and winters. Former mountain pastures, Merlet is above all an exceptional balcony on the Mont Blanc.

  • Two circuits allow you to discover the Merlet Park and its animals: The green circuit is the easiest, it lasts about 1 hour and its layout allows you to do it with a stroller.
  • The blue circuit will be longer, it will take around 2 hours in total. It allows you to go around the whole park, with a little elevation. It is for good walkers and is not accessible for strollers (provide a baby carrier).

The direction of visit is free, it is you who organize your visit as you wish.

Your visit will be punctuated with fun and educational stages marked by stars.

The animals are in total freedom, there is no fence between you and the animals. We call this visit system a
“Immersion park”.
