Ambin Mountains, France – Italy, 3 Day Guided Trek

Ambin mountains

Pascal, a UIMLA certified guide, wants to lead you on a 3 day trek through the Ambin mountain group in the Alps between France and Italy.



3 Days

Jul, Aug




  • Spend 3 days hiking through the beautiful Ambin mountain group.
  • See the beauty of the Alps on the border between France and Italy.
  • Spend 2 nights sleeping in a tent under the stars.


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.

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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
