Description

For 3 days, I would like to guide you on a beautiful trek in the Ambin mountains, along the border between France and Italy.

A sub-range of the Cottian Alps, the Ambin mountains are a wonderful group of peaks that stand tall between France and Italy. A few examples of the peaks in the range include the Punta Sommeiller (3,333m), the Monte Nible (3,365m), Mont Malamot (2,917m), and many more. These peaks touch the Italian province of Torino and the French department of Savoie.

Over the course of this trip, we will be trekking for approximately 6-7 hours per day. During our treks, you will get to see an assortment of gorgeous lakes, grassland as well as the aforementioned peaks, which you will even get to scale if the weather is on our side. During the evenings, we will sleep in tents under the stars, or, if the weather is inclement, in one of the refuges found throughout the Ambin mountains.

While you don’t have to be an expert trekker to participate in this trip, you should have some prior hiking experience. You should also be in good enough physical condition to maintain the 6-7 hour per day pace of the trek.

Trekking through the Alps and its subsidiaries is a magnificent way to see, admire and explore the beauty of nature. And on this 3 day trek, I would like to guide you through the wonderful Ambin mountains between France and Italy. To join me, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

I can also take you hiking in the Belledonne range in the French Alps on this 3 day adventure.
