Pre-Alps Great Crossing (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Hautes-Alpes)



In France, the Pre-Alps extend over approximately 100,000 km², from the Mediterranean to Alsace. They are divided into several massifs, the most important of which are: The Southern Prealps, which extend from the Côte d'Azur to the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. They include in particular the Mercantour, Écrins and Vercors massifs. The Northern Prealps, which extend from Isère to Alsace. They include in particular the Jura, Vercors and Vosges massifs. The Pre-Alps are characterized by varied relief, with peaks reaching 3,000 meters above sea level, deep valleys and plateaus. They are made up of limestone, schistose and granite rocks. The vegetation of the Pre-Alps is varied, depending on the altitude. There are deciduous, coniferous and maritime pine forests. The Prealps are also an important place of passage for migratory birds. The Prealps are a region rich in natural resources, notably water, wood and minerals.
