Description

I propose you a very varied hiking route along which you will discover the incredible diversity of the massifs of Arves and Écrins. Between alpine plateaus steppe-like and wild valleys, the route of this hike offers magnificent perspectives on the surrounding peaks, and especially on the Meije. Close, or contemplated from a height, you will approach the glaciers, to better understand their functioning, their role, their future. Despite this high mountain atmosphere, the hike does not present any technical difficulties. The nights in shelters allow to walk with a light backpack.

Program

  • Reasonable walking days (4 to 5 hours a day)
  • Portage limited to the business of the day, comfortable nights in a hut or lodge
