More Info

Écrins National Park is home to many large peaks. Take on the highest peak, the Barre des Ecrins (4102 meters), traversing the largest glacier in the area while you’re at it. Dôme de Neige des Écrins (4,015 meters) is the second-largest peak and technically a straightforward climb (physically is another story). From the summits of these two large peaks, you’ll get amazing views of the rest of the mountains. Another great climb is the interesting spear-shaped Aiguille Dibona (3,130 meters) which is a more technical climb.




Good to Know



During the summer, average daily temperatures in this area range from 15 ºC to 20 ºC, with temperatures often below freezing at the top of the mountains. Summer is also fairly dry, but thunderstorms can occur quickly.

What People are Saying

Quentin is simply an awesome guide. It was one of my first climbing experiences and Quentin helped me feel safe. He is very professional and knows how to manage groups of people. Despite the changes in our project, Quentin always tried to accomodate the best options for the group. His experience and knowledge of the mountain gave confidence to each group member. The fact that he is both physiotherapist and guide is a great advantage, regarding physical preparation and stretching for example. Thanks Quentin! And see you next year on top of the Mont-Blanc!
