Description

This hike in the Lavey valley is the perfect plan to recharge your batteries during 2 days. Join me in this high mountain environment for a refreshing adventure. The Lavey alley is in the Ecrins National Park.

You will be a guest in a protected location. This renders the mountain even more appealing in my opinion. in fact, we will get to fully enjoy the natural scenery.

Both on the first and second day, we can choose between two different itineraries.

We will share a pleasant night in good company with other hikers and mountaineers at the refuge.

The fact that the valley is very sunny is definitely a highlight of the trip. Moreover, we will see marmots and chamoix. Plus, the flora in the area is simply magnificent. During the two days we will enjoy the views over multiple glaciers.
