in spring and fall
The chalet is an ideal place to start marvelous hikes throughout the region/in the mountains. The chalet is situated just around the corner from the National Parc des Écrins which is a paradise for every mountain lover or mountaineer. You can discover the national park on a day hike or by hiking from hut to hut.
Outside the park there are also lots of hiking possibilities like the marked routes of the GR (Grandes Randonnées) or one of the many regional hiking routes to serene alpine lakes, marvelous mountain passes and remote mountain huts. Hopefully you’ll encounter some of the amazing wildlife of the region like an ibex, mouflon or chamois along your way.
The best months to enjoy the mountains by foot are September and October because of the temperate weather, the marvelous autumn colors and the lack of other tourists.
In the chalet we are happy to help you plan any hike you would like to do.
You can already plan your hiking routes on the site of the OISANS
