Picturesque landscapes with small villages, great wine and food are some of the ingredients that make hunting in Provence unique and make you a memory of a life time.
The landscape is diverse with picturesque villages along the mountain roads. It is no wonder that the fragrance industry originates from these areas in Provence, the scent of wild thyme, rosemary and many wild herbs fill the late summer and early autumn air.

Valberg is a skiing resort in the vicinity of the Mercantour national park ensuring ideal condition for the game and a great population. The park covers a core area of 685 km2 with limited access and no hunting. Surrounding the national park is an approx. 1200 km2 peripheric buffer zone. We have managed to secure exclusivity to the chamois hunting on a approx. 3500 ha terrain spanning from an altitude of 1200 to 1900 m.
Combining this hunting adventure with your family holiday is ideal with a little more than a one-hour drive to Nice, Cannes and Monaco, commonly referred to as the French Riviera. Alpes Maritimes offers plenty of activities and sights to visit for you and your family. Let us know if you need assistance with guided tours, wine tasting or a truffle hunt with Jean-Jacques.
Hunting in the mountains requires reasonable physique and challenges your skills as a hunter and marksman. Shooting distances can exceed 250 meters.
Guests are picked up at Nice airport and transferred to the place of accommodation.
Hunting Day 1 Morning: Arriving in the terrain 2 h before sunrise and assessing wind and weather conditions with a local guide, who will be guiding you in the mountains. We will be ascending at first break of light and stalking to strategic positions on the mountain to overlook the valleys and spot for movement and game.
Lunch is normally served in the green.
Hunting Day 1 Afternoon: The activity level of the chamois during the hours from noon to early afternoon is relatively low and we resume hunting early afternoon in a combination of stalking and overlooking valleys. As a rule of thumb, we stop the hunt in good time before it gets dark, avoiding dangerous walks and having to retrieve the game in the dark.
Hunting Day 2: Follows the same rhythm as Hunting day 1 at the same location or another location according to the abundance of game.
Departure Day: At your discretion we will stop at the local taxidermist and coordinate any potential taxidermy work. Hereafter transport to the airport in Nice.
