Infos & Booking


I propose you to live a unique experience by coming to spend an incredible and unforgettable night, suspended under the sky of the Hautes-Alpes or in the Verdon gorges!

After the ascent climbing route or a vertiginous hike, we will stop on a comfortable ledge to spend the evening and have dinner far above the ground.

Then you will settle down on your two-seater portalegde* for a night out of the ordinary, before enjoying a coffee in the morning, in front of the sunrise, with your feet in the air!

If you feel like other vertical aventures in the Hautes-Alpes department, why not follow me in the via ferrata of the gorges of Ailefroide in Pelvoux?

* The portaledge is a folding and very comfortable platform for bivouac that climbers use during climbs lasting several days. Comfortable, flat, light, it's a hotel where you can't count the stars. During the night, you will always be attached and connected to the cliff for a total safety.


D1: Easy climb et hike, then evening and night on a cliff.
We meet together in the late afternoon, or before depending on the choice of access (easy multi pitch route climbing or hiking).
After climbing a few easy pitches, or a path requiring the usage of the rope if you are not a climber, we will land on a ledge in the sky for a well deserved dinner.
Then we will install together your two-seater portaledge above the wall, for a magic sunset and night.

D2: Breakfast in the void and abseiling.
In the morning, you will have a coffee and a croissant whenever you want, facing the sunrise, with feet in the air!
Dismantling and storage of the portaledge and bivouac equipment.
We will leave the place by abseiling down.
Separation in the middle of the morning, or extension for those who wish to climb (not included in the price, contact me for more information and rates).
