Hiking

To consult on the Randos du pays des ecrins website !!


Dozens of hikes are available to you from our house.
We are located in particular on the GR54 - "Tour de l'Oisans et des Ecrins", as well as on the red route of Via Alpina - portion R128 .
From 0 to 2000 m elevation, youcan walk alone or with family on the iconic hikes of our valley: the White Glacier at 2542 m or the Eychauda lake at 2538 m above sea level.

But many lesser-known paths will be advised, the playing field is immense ...

Climbing & Via Ferrata

Ailefroide, the last village at the top of our valley, is a Mecca for French climbing and mountaineering. Ailefroide offers more than 120 large routes from 100 to 500 m in length, boulder routes of all levels, but also several rind sites and schools.

Apart from this mythical site, you will find many sites also in the valley and surroundings, to consultHERE . Near the house we recommend the Traverses site .

If climbing seems difficult to grasp, you may want to try the Via Ferratta, which are walls fitted out as natural sites, equipped with steps or ladders, with a continuous cable allowing you to walk in complete safety. Most of the sites have free access, but it is essential to be equipped with the necessary security equipment, which can be hired throughout the valley at low cost. The closest to us is the via ferrata of the Ailefroide torrent .

All the professionals of the valley are of course there to guide you in your first lengths

Whitewater and swimming

You can enjoy several rivers and streams in the valley and choose between rafting , canoe-rafting, hydrospeed, kayaking, or canyoning ... or have a good fishing trip .
If you prefer a quieter swim , you can go to the municipal swimming pool of Pelvoux.

Or spend an afternoon at the edge of the Roche de Rame lake , about fifteen minutes away, set up on a small beach for swimming in shallow water. A play area for the little ones and the possibility of paddling, and eating a snack on site make it a nice place.
