A week of fabulous Alpine walking based in Les Freissinieres valley, where the Alps meet Provence. From our wonderful hotel, we will have a wealth of interesting routes to choose from. There are paths leading up towards the passes above us, the plain below us or a neighbouring valley through pine forests or via rocky hillsides. On one day, we may walk up to Dormillouse with its lakes and waterfalls on the edge of the Les Ecrins National Park. On another day, we will walk up to one of the very comfortable mountain refuges where we will stay overnight to get a real sense of the surrounding mountains. The Alpine flowers will be at their glorious best and we expect the mountainsides to be carpeted in colour. There is one free day to simply relax or perhaps hire a local guide for further adventures – perhaps try France’s only via ferrata if you ‘re feeling brave!
