A breathtakingly beautiful cirque created from water and ice erosion.

A soaring cliff in the shape of a horseshoe – always recognisable, utterly unforgettable! To reach the astonishing rock arena of Creux du Van, leave Noiraigue on the legendary "14 Contours Trail", the most physically challenging section of this hike. A breathtaking vista awaits you at the summit, before you take the "Single" path to return to your starting point.

- Due to the presence of suckler cows on the pastures on the edge of the Creux du Van / Le Soliat, it is strongly advised not to come with your dog. Livestock can be very aggressive towards walkers accompanied by a dog and safety cannot be guaranteed. The farmers are not responsible for any liability in the event of non-compliance with this preventive measure.
