Hiking in the Bauges range

A 3-day hiking trip to discover the Bauges massif and its principal summits in an exceptional environment, with Lucas, UIMLA certified mountain leader.

Not specified

Alps

3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct


Description

Three days hiking and exploring in the Bauges Mountains.

This hiking trip is star-shaped, which indeed adds comfort to your journey. Our goal is to climb the three highest peaks of the massif. They are the following:
– The Pécloz
– The Trélod
– Mont Colombier

The summits are pre-Alpine, but they have a “Himalayan” dimension. Although the Bauges Mountains are not as known as others, they are equally beautiful.

This hike is a really unique and magnificent experience. We get to enjoy:
– A quiet area, far from city noises
– Technical and accessible peaks with amazing views
– The charm of the mountains
– A territory, a heritage and a strong identity

The ascents are technical but not difficult. At some points we will go trough narrow paths and use our hands. During the ascents, we get to enjoy grassy meadows with incredible panoramas. The Bauges regional Natural Park preserves the environment beautifully.

Do you find this trip interesting? Then please contact me and let’s go on this beautiful hike to the summits of the Bauges together. It would be a pleasure for me to take you there and make you live an unforgettable experience.

About the guide

I discovered the joy of the mountains at a very young age, and I knew that my place was there, in the Jura, the Alps, or elsewhere, but in a place where raised terrain allows to go high...
My experience in the Mountain Troops and the Gendarmerie, together with a regular practice of different mountain sports, allowed me to gain knowledge and know-how that enriched my mountain leader training.
In 2012 I got certified as State Mountain Leader (AEM), which allowed me to start fully living my passion for the mountain, and sharing it with you.
I propose to share very varied activities: walking ,hiking, trekking, snowshoeing. It allows me to enjoy precious moments in nature with you.
To complement my leader training, I discovered trail running 8 years ago, a more sportif and intense way to discover the mountain, always respecting the environment.
I can also offer you my expertise in Morocco, where I have been going often during these last years. My knowledge of the field and of the local correspondants allows me to propose magnificent journeys to you!
From the Jura to the Alps, not forgetting Pyrenees, Corsica and Morocco, my approach to the mountain has always been guided by the search of pleasure and the comprehension of the environment.

Home again after three amazing days in the Jura mountains I just want to come back for more adventures! We were a group of five people so we got the pleasure of planning our own trip. Lucas had an idea to start with and then we made some modifications in order to fit our level of running. Lucas was the perfect guide and host and very eager to share with us his passion for the Jura Terrain and its flora and fauna. He is a very strong runner and great fun to hang out with. We had a lot to talk about and he was definitely one in the group! I can only give my very best recommendations!!!

I had a wonderful adventure with Lucas in the Jura mountains. I'm a trail running beginner and he made me dreaming for more! He had planed well and had back up plans if needed...He new his area well and took us to great places. We visited high spots with great views and different country sides that was beautiful. Evert day was different. I'm  so happy to become acquainted with Lucas :)

We had a very good time during our snowshoe trip with Lucas! The Jura region is very beautiful and peaceful (perfect to explore with snowshoes) and Lucas was a great guide that helped us in everything we needed, shared all his knowledge and passion about the place, showing us a lot of spots (some hidden and less travelled) to enjoy great views and also teaching us a lot of interesting facts about nature, the history and the culture of the places we visited. On top of that he made us feel as if we were walking with a friend and not just a guide which made the experience even better. So, on short, we strongly recommend to everyone this activity, the region and Lucas as guide for a great few days in the nature away from all. Best regards, Luis Manso
