Infos & Booking


I propose a weekend of hiking and mushroom picking in the Hautes-Alpes, in the heart of the Champsaur valley. These two days are all about discovery, and are aimed primarily at people who want to learn about mushrooms, how to pick them and how to cook them.

The hikes are of an easy level: the effort is moderate and the difference in altitude modest, the main thing being to enjoy yourself.

In addition to the fun aspect of these outings, this weekend of hiking and picking will put you on the road to self-sufficiency. You will discover different types of mushrooms and how to cook them. You will also enjoy the magnificent Champsaur countryside as you stroll at your own pace under the Hautes-Alpes sun!

The weekend is organized in small groups of 8 people maximum, to ensure a convivial atmosphere.

To continue discovering the region, I also offer a 4-day trekking in the Valgaudemar and a complete tour of the Écrins massif.
