What you'll do

I invite you to a stroll under the stars. We meet around 9:30 p.m. to go to a place conducive to observation, calm and away from city lights. Then we settle in comfortably. The magic operates and a magical spectacle unfolds very slowly before our eyes. We will travel in time and space without any difficulty. The Greek and the Romans will be there with their incredible pantheon. Then we will go back down to the cars to go and have a mulled wine if you feel like it.

I have been patented in mountaineering for more than 20 years and guide to a ride in the stars for so long. Scientific training astronomy, astrophysics I am passionate about what constitutes our environment and especially the stars. But it is as much the knowledge of the myths and legends which populate our sky as of knowledge which I propose to you to share. For many years I have offered these timeless moments by going to discover the celestial vault and the stories it sends back to us. I know Vercors perfectly and you will drive to the right place to make these observations.

Where you'll be

We will leave the chalet in Vercors, to reach after a small ascent a plateau overhanging the plain of Villard de Lans, there we will settle in a belvedere allowing a perfect visibility to make a beautiful observation.

Merci au guide très sympa et accessible (et à Yakou le chien) Le thème est très orienté sur la transcription du ciel étoilé par rapport à la Mythologie. Je pense qu’une part des explications devrait être davantage dédiée aux explications scientifiques.

Vincent est au top et sait de quoi il parle. Nous étions en vacances dans le coin avec mon conjoint et nous aimons beaucoup l’astronomie. Ça a été un régal pour nous deux et nous avons eu beaucoup de chances. Il faisait beau, le ciel était bien dégagé et l’air était bon. Nous avons eu le droit à quelques histoires sur les étoiles. Je recommande à 100% cette activité 😊

Geweldige ervaring op een erg mooie locatie. Misschien door COVID iets te populair bij feestende jongeren. Maar de ervaring is er niet minder om.

Vincent est une personne qui aime ce qu’il fait et ça se voit, je recommande cette expérience pour les néophytes. J’ai appris beaucoup de choses et j’en ai pris plein les yeux !

Une belle rencontre, Vincent est passionné par l'astronomie et les légendes prennent vie à son contact. Dommage que le temps n'ait pas été clair.
