Gap, in the heart of the Alps

Gap, the capital of the Hautes-Alpes, is the department's cultural, administrative and commercial centre. The city is also a tourism hub on the Route Napoléon which links Golfe-Juan and Grenoble. Gap is situated between Grenoble, Embrun, Serre-Ponçon and Sisteron.

Surrounded by the mountain peaks of the Ecrins Massif and of Le Dévoluy and Le Champsaur, Gap is the ideal starting point from which to explore the valleys and the Ecrins National Park, just a few kilometres away.

The presence of the Conservatoire Botanique here is an indication of the city's commitment to taking steps to protect the environment and preserve local natural heritage.

With its pure air, its wide range of sporting and cultural activities, its outstanding landscapes, and its 300 days of sunshine per year, Gap is a place you will never tire of exploring and makes the perfect destination for a relaxing and unforgettable holiday with family or friends.
