During spring and summer seasons, beautiful species of flowers blossom and paint the ultimate postcard picture of Mercantour National Park. In the winter season, when the mountains are covered in snow, the park turns to a top ski destination. There are chalets built at the ski resort if visitors choose to stay there.
There are different itineraries for day trips from Nice to Mercantour National Park, depending on the interests of the visitors. Some just go there for the views, others want to hike or ride a donkey in the hills, and some take the gourmet tour that comes with a complete lunch.
