Would you like to join a unique hut-to-hut guided hiking tour in the Aiguilles Rouges? Then join local IML certified hiking guide, François, on this amazing 5-day program that will allow you to enjoy some of the most beautiful spots in the region.
François knows the area like the palm of his hand, not only was he born and raised there, his family settled in the region over 500 years ago! Therefore, he is the ideal guide for this tour as he will not only be able to take you to the best places in the Aiguilles Rouges Natural Reserve and its surroundings, but he will also be able to share all of his knowledge about the region too!
Additionally, this tour is a great option for those with less hut-to-hut hiking experience that want to try this type of adventure and put themselves to test in an awe-inspiring natural environment. However, you should not underestimate its intensity. You will need a good fitness level in order to tackle an average of more or less 1000m of positive and negative elevation gain in a day. Furthermore, although this tour takes place for the most part on “classic” type trails, there are a few passages that you may find a bit technical depending on your mountaineering experience.
On the way, you will enjoy catching sight of Ibex, beautiful mountain lakes, of the Bossons glacier, the gorgeous Valley of Bérard, the Mont Blanc massif, and of other unique mountains with rock formations. You can find an outline of the itinerary below.
Also, keep in mind that reaching Lac Blanc is often difficult before July due to the large quantities of snow. Consequently, the best time to plan your trip is from mid-July to mid-September. If you wish to plan a family adventure, we can organize a shorter Aiguilles Rouge program that is suited to the whole family.

Super expérience, merci à Etienne et au temps qui était au rdv!
Dommage de recevoir des infos en anglais et d'avoir une quantité de mails pour une activité qui pourrait être organisée très simplement... Sinon, l'activité en elle-même était très chouette :-) Merci
Nous avons eu une très chouette introduction à la via ferrata. Christophe a été MAGNIFIQUE pour sa patience, ses encouragements et ses conseils. Nous avons tous adoré. !
Gauthier was quick to respond in the initial booking process and answered any and all questions. Closer to our trip, he helpfully set me up with our guide on what’s app so we could discuss the plan. Our guide Ivan in Fountainbleau was fantastic - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I look forward to working with both explore-share and Ivan again in the future. Would highly recommend.
We had a fantastic 2 days with Christophe - we enjoyed lots of climbing, gained confidence in lead climbing outdoors and learnt a lot about basic safety and rescue techniques. Christophe is a very experienced, knowledgable, encouraging and patient guide and a lot of fun to learn from. The crags that we visited were in good condition and the surrounding area was beautiful.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
