Tende (06430) – 2 hours from Nice by train. The organisation “Neige et Merveilles” is located at an altitude of 1.500 metres in an isolated mountainous area, 10 km from the Closest village of Tende, and 50 km from Vintimille (Italy). Leisure activities: You will discover the Alpine environment, as well as the region’s historical and cultural heritage. You will also be able to participate in other activities such as hiking in the “Vallée des Merveilles” in the Mercantour National Park, swimming in the Bendola river, visiting local villages (Tende, La Brigue, Saorge), tying the Via Feratta and in the evenings, enjoying dance, photo-video sessions, stargazing, board games, barbecue, international meals, etc. One day per week in addition to the weekend will be dedicated to activities outside of the workcamp.
You will participate in the restoration of a site that represents an example of remarkably well conserved historical and geological heritage, and is one of the most important mines in the Alps. The Vallauria mine was exploited for its galena (silver-bearing lead), and blend (zinc based mineral) from the Middle Ages until 1930. Since 2011, volunteers have been reviving the accessibility to this site, both above and underground. Archaeological digs have also been taking place at the site since 2009.
You will be working underground at the entrance of the mine with some heavy material such as rocks and buckets of mortar.
