After hearing so much about this place I decided to finally go there. Les Vasques de la Lance are basically natural pools made by the river “La Lance”. Together with a friend we hiked approximately 20 kilometers in total. A huge hike, but so worth it!
To go there we drove in the direction of Colmars-les-Alpes. As the hike was not that well described, it took us some time to find the starting point. If you want to do this hike; please be aware that you should take the direction of “La Boussière”, just before the village. From there you take the road until it leads you to an off-road piste. Here you have 2 choses:
- You park at the piste and you hike the 16km off-road piste and the 4-km hike
- You take the piste by car and only do the 4km hike
The hike itself is easy and offers beautiful views on small and big waterfalls. At the end point you can even bath yourself in the Vasques!
