The French Alps are host to some of the most spectacular and varied mountain scenery in Europe. Sitting serenely towards the south end of the main alpine chain the Ecrins National Park is host to the Alps most southerly 4000m peak, the Barre des Ecrins (4102m). There are 150 summits greater than 3000m including the mythical peaks of Mont Pelvoux (3943m) and La Meije (3983m). Deep glacial valleys provide spectacular but easy access into the heart of this mountainous region where its wealth of beauty, flora and fauna are revealed.
Les Ecrins are justly popular amongst alpinists but with a network of long distance (GR's or Grande Randonnee) walking paths such as the GR54-Tour des Ecrins and numerous other mountain trails the area offers unique opportunities for walking and trekking a-like. Full day walks can be linked together with an overnight stay in a high mountain refuge.
Le Chazelet, La Grave provides the perfect base for exploring these mountains - famed for their sunny climate, unrivalled light and clear air. The village perched at 1800m overlooking the Romanche valley is surrounded by the sunny alpine pastures of the Plateau d'Emparis. The forgiving terrain of the plateau offers plenty of interesting walks to get you acclimatised whilst you gaze towards the spectacular peaks of the Grand Pic de la Meije, Le Rateau and the tumbling seracs of the Girose and Tabuchet glacier.
