Walking and Climbing

Oisans has such extraordinary natural heritage that a National Park, the Ecrins, was created to protect it and enhance the environment.  It is the largest national park in France with over 680km of way-marked trials ranging from simple strolls to adventurous hikes.  Surrounded by the majestic mountains, whatever path you choose and however difficult, the setting is sure to be memorable.

Be at one with the mountains in complete security. The ‘Via Ferratas’ are protected rocky scrambling routes.  Thanks to the ladders, ramps and cables fixed to the rock face you do not have to be an experienced climber to find yourself perched on a rock face.
