Infos & Booking


I propose you to follow me, during summer, on the most beautiful summits of more than 3000 meters (or almost) of the Maurienne valley.

In the heart of Savoie, we leave from the forests or the mountain pastures, via the alpine moors, the scree slopes or the névés, to reach the high mountain and enjoy fabulous panoramas on the surrounding massifs. These hikes are also an opportunity to discover the fauna (feathered and hairy), the flora (flowers, plants, shrubs and trees), the geology (landscape reading, fossils, crystals, rocks) on the trails and especially off the trails.

Each outing is an opportunity to climb one of the many peaks of the Maurienne region that are over 3000 meters high, or very close to it. Each time the objective is different.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the summits you can visit: Pointe de Lanserlia (2909m), Grand Coin (2729m), Cime de la Sambuis (2727m), Cime des Torches (2958m), Pointe de Pierre Fendue (3037m), Mont Thabor* (3178m), Aiguille de l’Épaisseur* (3220m), épaule de la Grande Chible (2854m), Dôme de la Cochette (3041m), Cime de la Valette (2858m), Pointe d'Emy (2797m), Cheval Noir (2832m), Bellachat (2822m), Mont Brequin (3131m), Pointe du Fréjus (2934m), Pic Blanc du Galibier (2955m), Crête d'Argentière (2887m), etc.

*: Ascent requiring to spend a night in a refuge.

The objective and the departure time are given as an indication, they can be modified according to the weather, snow conditions or the mountain.

The meeting point will be communicated to you after the reservation according to the planned summit. You will be driven to the start of the hike.
