Description

Between Savoie and Haute-Savoie departements, the Skyline of the Bauges is a beautiful route between earth and sky, aiming to climb 12 of the 14 peaks over 2000 meters in the Bauges massif, in sports walking, trail or alpine hiking mode. Those are different terms for the same objective: to have fun together in the mountains.

This new itinerary allows you to follow a 3-day route, with 2 nights in a prepared bivouac, on ridge paths, sections of the GR (Grande Randonnée = Great Trekking) trail, forest tracks... It has been designed to be a loop, in order to limit the vehicle transfers and minimise the carbon footprint that other proposals would increase.

Many passages are on narrow ridges, and it is sometimes necessary to "use your hands" for some easy climbing (grade 3). Safety will always be present, I will be there to help you get through these passages without stress, roped up if necessary. The vertiginous impression will be our companion throughout the adventure, so it is necessary to have a minimum affinity with it.

The two nights in bivouac are done in a place prepared in advance. You will not have to carry any sleeping bag, tent or anything else, just a sheet! These two evenings will be a moment of connection with Nature, in simplicity, around the fire, in the silence of the forest. But with minimal comfort to recover!

This Skyline of the Bauges is a next door adventure for intense natural immersion, vertiginous journeys and great moments!
