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.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
After meeting in Bramans in Savoie, we will make our way to the Le Plan de la Vie, about 10 kilometers away. From there, we will venture through the Col du Petit Mont Cenis, then on to the Lacs Perrin before going to the Vallon de Savine. We will spend the night near the Italian border.
We will cross over to Italy and go to the refuge Vaccarone, then make our way to the Col de l’Angel (3,091m). If the weather is agreeable, we will climb the Mont d’Ambin (3,378m). After the climb, we will return to the Col de l’Angel, where you can admire the lac d’Ambin (2,700m). We will camp for the night near the lake.
The final day’s trek will depend heavily on weather. If it is good, we will climb another peak in the area. If it is not, there are many spots we can visit and explore. Afterwards, we will make our way back through the Ambin valley to our vehicles.
Either camping in tents, or various refuges depending on the weather conditions.
About the Guide
I'm Mountain leader since 2014 and I lived in Savoie (french northern Alps) for a long time before living in Lyon. I already have guided clients in mountains like Chartreuse, Bauges, Vercors, Belledonne, Vanoise or Beaufortain. My favorite kind of hike is in a wild place, out of the main paths, with large landscapes. I know many trips like this during one, two or more days, with refuge or not. It will be a pleasure to guide you, during school holidays or week-ends.
