Activity description

This trip is perfectly adapted for those who wish to relax in a healthy and beautiful environment while practicing a sport. One of the best things of the region is the weather with about 300 days of sunshine a year, without forgetting the beautiful snow-covered mountains.

You will spend this trip in the stunning Vallée de la Clarée. As a preserved site since 1992 for the protection of fauna, flora and heritage, the vallée de la Clarée forms a natural and cultural whole linked by history. This beautiful valley managed to keep its authenticity. Nature lovers looking for wildlife won't be disappointed. The vallée de la Guisane starts at col du Lautaret and ends in Briançon. It's a typical Hautes-Alpes village, facing the Ecrins mountain range.

Everyday, we will do 4 to 5 hour-hikes with a height difference of 400 to 500 meters. Lisa will take the physical condition of each participant into account to pick the most adapted route.
