Paid for park, with all the local wildlife easy to see. The Marmozets are our favourite. Great place to stroll around with families. Beautiful views across the valley to Mont Blanc. If you don't want a long walk, keep driving as there is nearly always a space at the top! (Summer only)

Lovely park to visit to see animals in their habitat. Half a day visit.

The Parc Animalier de Merlet is not a zoo. It's a reserve for deer, chamois, bouquetins, marmots, llamas and more. Come see the animals in their natural habitat.

Animal park in the summer, perfect for children and a very nice day out.

A great escape for families to meet the fauna and flora and enjoy a fantastic view on the Mont-Blanc range.

Trail
“A gorge in Servoz with a very well maintained footpath (about 1.3km each way). In summer the water level is natural so can be impressive after rain (and you don't need clear blue skies to enjoy this walk). ”
