Two of the best options for ski touring in France, the Alps, and certainly around the world are Col du Replat and Col du Pavé.

Col du Replat is an excellent option because it connects the Etancons and Selle valleys. Very close to Col du Replat is Col du Pavé, another wonderful place to explore around. Even if they are so close to each other, each one has their own personalities. So each one offers a very unique experience with different sceneries and natural spots to visit.

This trip has an open itinerary. Thus, you have the option to decide where do you want to go, and how long do you want to stay.

However, no matter the number of days you choose, you’ll get to see some of the most beautiful mountains on Earth! You’ll also get the chance to see many amazing mountain huts deep in the mountains.

One of the highlights of this place is the Glacier Superieur des Cavales. This magnificent glacier is simply astounding. If we decide to go around it, expect some easy skinning in a fantastic glacial cirque.

But, the real advantage of this trip is that you’ll get to explore the Alps without the restrictions of a resort. You’ll experience the freedom that nature offers, far from the lifts and the crowds.

Above all, you’ll get to live this adventure in the most secure way possible. I know these places like the palm of my hands. So, I’ll take you to some of my favorite and secret spots. And, I’ll make sure you are safe while you explore them.

So if you are looking for a unique experience, with more freedom to explore the French Alps, search no more. Send me a request and let’s plan together your next ski touring adventure!

But if you want a longer trip, check out this 6-day Ortlès Massif ski touring program, that I also guide.
