Bivouac at the Bastille

Nature and biodiversity Living in the city of the future Walks, visits and inaugurations

The bivouac area at the Bastille is ready to welcome you to take the high ground just a stone's throw from the city to discover the joys and good practices of bivouacking in the mountains.

The creation of a bivouac area at the Bastille will allow all publics to discover the night in the mountains, in particular for those who do not practice mountain activities. It will be a place of environmental education and bivouac for all.

The bivouac area will be open every day (except Sunday evening) from 4pm to 10am with the presence of a refuge keeper to welcome bivouacers and give them advice and information on the mountain environment. It will be possible to choose between coming with your own meal or benefiting from a catering offer including evening meal and breakfast.

This bivouac area is primarily intended for people who are not very familiar with the mountain environment, but it can also be used by anyone who is curious. It will not be possible to spend more than one night per week on site.

The bivouac area will be composed of 6 huts and 6 tent sites as well as a shelter for meals. Accompanied groups will be able to benefit from the loan of equipment: tents, sleeping bags, headlamps, etc.

Animations around the environment and the transition will be proposed every evening by the guard or by local associations partners of the project.

The bivouac area will be completely dismantled in October 2022 without leaving any trace on this natural space.
