In the month of May, when the seasons are transitioning and the snow is slowly melting away, the mountains come alive. Some of these animals have been sleeping for most of the winter, like the marmots, and start foraging for food. The alpine ibex and the mountain goats begin to moult, which is why you'll often see them scratching their fur with their horns or rubbing against trees or rocks.

Visiting the Gran Paradiso National Park is a great opportunity not only to go for a beautiful mountain hike, but also for the amazing encounters with this lovely wild creatures.

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. Remember to.. GET OUT MORE ..as it’s #FABULOUSOUTDOORS!
