About

Come and observe the mountain animals wandering freely in this animal park with a magical setting, at 1500m altitude, just in front of the Mont-Blanc. Online booking required on weekends and daily in July and August.

Merlet immerses you in its vast wildlife area, the time of an easy hike, crossing forest and sunny meadows, marked by its old traditional mountain chalets. The unusual proximity with its many animals surprises and almost makes forget their wild character..
Species to discover: ibex, sika deer, lama, mouflon, marmot, chamois and fallow deer!

Easy hike in the park, 2 to 3h of visit.

Several benches and deckchairs allow you to take a break during your visit. You can even enjoy the sun and lay down at the altiport, a large and flat pasture where you can lie down.

Discover the exhibition and projection rooms, the souvenir shop, the educational and fun displays and the guided tour in 4 languages on your smartphone!
In July and August, daily free activities about the animals and the mountains.
