Hiking in Vallouise
Within a 2 hours radius around the gite, you will have a choice of 3000 hikes (yes three thousands!)
All are not in the Vallouise valley, but a week’s holiday here will give you an overview of the area of outstanding beauty that is the Ecrins national park. Whether you are looking for high mountain landscape and not-to-be-missed hikes towards mountain refuges such as the Glacier Blanc, the Sélé, the Pelvoux or the Barre des Ecrins or more gentle walks towards the Col de la Pousterle or the dale of Jas Lacroix, you will not be disappointed.
You may have chosen the Vallouise valley for the peaks and the glaciers which form the heart of the Ecrins national park, for its bio-diversity, the purity of the water and the air, its 300 days of sunshine per year or its rich historic and religious heritage.
We provide many guide books to purchase or peruse at the gite and can advise you on the “musts” of the area.
