A day with the Ibex – Bouquetins of Vanoise National Park #FabulousOutdoors

On today’s photo walk we came up to Champagny Le Haut, it’s part of the Parc National de la Vanoise, so we went for a walk up the valley with the hope to get to see some wildlife. The place is known.. people say they keep spotting deer, mountain goats.. so we went up hiking and.. it’s been our lucky day, finally!  I keep promising in this videos I’m gonna show you some wildlife, and I keep wandering around in mountains and forests andI rarely get to show you anything.. but today we are in luck, there’s a group of mountain goats, or ibex how you wanna call them, just up here and I’m just filming them with this other camera.. so let’s have a look.

So, for the viewers that never seen them before, this is called the Alpine Ibex, or cabra Ibex, is also known as the Steinbock ..or Bouquetin in French. It’s a species of wildlife, a goat that lives in the mountains, in the European Alps, and this is being springtime, it’s the period when they mate, so occasionally you see them fighting, as the males fighting to get the females. This is a protected specie that lives in the Grand Paradiso National Park, in the Aosta Valley of Italy, so just on the other side of the mountain, or over this side, the Vanoise National Park, which is in the Savoie Rhone Alpes region, these two National Parks are actually connected and they’ve been created to help the IBEX to survive and to thrive.

What I found fascinating is that these animals live in the wild, and they go through tough wnters, and lack of food.. however this is a Nationa Park, so every now and again they get fe somehow, but.. it’s just fantastic to see them. Champagny Le Haut is the beginning of the Parc National de la Vanoise, and it’s in a fantastic valley quite open and just at the foot of big mountain peaks such as the Grande Motte and the Grande Casse, and there are several mountain hiking trails and cross country tracks in the winter time, a fantastic area for mountain biking.. and for the outdoor enthusiasts. That’s why I couldn’t miss to come and explore, and to have a wander around, and to show you.. and is alsa a place where the wildlife it’s protected as been a National Park. All right, so here is the end of our first trip to Champagny Le haut, which is in the Tarentaise, Rhone-Alpes, Savoie region of France, so.. maybe we’ll come back again, so.. today I’m pretty pleased as we’ve got these IBEX on camera, so finally I could show you something.. as i keep sayin.. we are in hunt for filimg wildlife.. but today we did get some.. and, so you’re welcome, if you like this video, to SUBSCRIBE to the channel, by clicking the button below.. below, and follow and hopefully I can get you to see more of this king of stuff.

Cycling Tours Guide – Annecy Lake France by Fabo

Cycling Tips for beginners: Climbing Tips – Nutrition Advice.
Annecy Lake is one of the best places for cycling in Europe, whether it is for a family cycling holiday, for a training camp or just for touring by bicycle.

It is a great place for getting back on the bike after the winter months, as there is a fantastic cycling path that goes all the way down to Albertville, about 35 Km long, and back, pretty much all flat terrain amongst beautiful countryside.
The lake is surrounded by beautiful mountains, so for the more advanced cyclists or for those passionate about climbing, there’s a lot to do.
The cyclepath has even got its dedicated tunnel to cycle through, which was built for the old train line, hence the old train in exposition along the way.

The scenery that you get whilst climbing are simply stunning. Wherever there are lakes surrounded by mountains, it’s a cyclist’s dream, and Annecy Lake with its beautiful surroundings is one of those special places.

In this video, as climbing tip for beginners, we spoke about the cyclist’s position whilst cycling uphill, seated or standing was the question. The answer is, a bit of both: every now and again, the cyclist must get up on the pedals, so as to give a rest to the major muscle groups, to gear down is very important and efficient, also for sprinting. As per nutrition advice, what food to eat and to take with you out cycling: we recommend to eat fruits, particularly bananas, dates, dried fruits, but also some juicy fruits that, together with lots of water, will contribute in hydrating the body.
Hydration is a very important factor to consider when exercising outdoors, and particularly when cycling long distances or riding uphill.

Annecy Le View is also a photographer’s dream, so I had to hang out in the evening to take some night photos with the Canon 600D, of which I’ve included some in the video and I’ll post some more here on the blog by clicking here:Annecy Le View ..a photographer’s dream location

Went to Annecy for a nice day of cycling around the lake, then shoot some photos on the way to dinner.
