A first calm day where we’ll cross the plains and forests of Villar d’Arêne. We’ll also go to the Aiguillon Pass. With a little luck, we’ll observe the chamois wintering in these places.
Altitude change: 350 m.
Today we’ll hike the south face above La Grave on the Côte Rouge ridges. We will ascend the Signal de la Grave summit (2446 m) and admire the incredible views of La Meije massif and Rousse massif. We’ll descend through the alpine hamlets of Clots.
Altitude change: 750 m.
The last day, we’ll make a sports ascent to the incredible Emparis plateau, a snowy immensity with an amazing view of the north face of La Meije and its typical northern terrain.
Altitude change: 650 m.
Weather: We’ll move in the mountain (between 1400 and 2500 m), thermal amplitudes can be significant in a single day regardless of the season. Your clothing should be scalable (several thin coats are better suited than one thick layer).
Whilst born in Slovakia I have lived in France since 2005 in the lovely village of la Grave in the Hautes Alpes. Every day, summer; autumn; winter and spring, I love to discover the fauna and flora of this changing mountain environment through all outdoor activities and particularly Nordic Walking, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Snowshoeing and Hiking.
I graduated in France as an International Mountain Leader, Mountain Bike and Nordic Walking Guide in 2012.
I have a Masters Degree in Environmental Sciences (1997), Comenius University (Bratislava, Slovakia) and I take joy when I can share my knowledge of the natural mountain environment including the fauna and flora, medicinal and edible plants and how we can use them. I know all those secret, special places to see the best these mountains have to offer.
I represented Slovakia as a member of the National Orienteering team. The experience of practicing sport at such a high level allows me to help you get in shape and enjoy the mountains. Whatever your fitness level I can help you exceed your own expectations. Whether you are slow and unfit but want to spend time in the mountains, recovering from injury and missing the environment or a super fit athlete I can offer a package designed for you.
Through my professional experience as a Marketing manager for 7 years I can also offer seminars, photo shoots of outdoor activities, team building and tailored made expeditions’ for all organisations.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
