Field trip at Mont Aigual

Discover the Mont Aigoual, its beautiful landscapes, its history and its natural richness!

Mont Aigoual

Mont Aigoual is the highest point (1567 meters) of the southern part of the Massif Central. It is surrounded by a unique meteorological observatory founded end of the 19th century, which is the last permanently inhabited mountainweather station in France. Office National des Forêts, the French National Forestry Office is happy to welcome you for a full-day visit of the summit of the Mont Aigoual. Our forest rangers will share their knowledge and love of its forest and natural environment. The journey from La Grand Motte to Mont Aigoual will bring you over a great variety of natural and man-made lanscapes, representing a large climatic gradient, from the Mediterranean level to the medium-altitude mountains.

You can choose between three different visits, all starting from the summit. More information here.

Registration information and costs are available here. Registration includes coffee and a light breakfast at the Conference Center, a snack with local products when arriving at Mont Aigoual and the lunch.

The field trip is organized by ONF and Irstea. Information is also available on the website of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015.
