white water rafting, mountaineering, walking....
Whilst skiing and cycling are popular activities in our area of the alps, they are by no means the only activities. The Ecrins National park is home to some of the best climbing, walking and mountaineering in France. The park is home to high peaks, glacier fields, glacial valleys and subalpine woodlands and lakes. You do not need to be a highly experienced hiker or climber to properly experience what the park has to offer, as there are many day walks to spectacular locations that can be reached by a person with just reasonable fitness. Other activities include white water rafting on the Veneon river, which runs just below the village.
One of our favourite locations is only a few kilometres away, but unseen to many, as it is inaccessible to vehicles. The Lac de Lauvitel is a magical alpine lake that has crystal clear water and various waterfalls cascading into it from the glaciers on the surrounding peaks – truly spectacular! It is also home to playful and inquisitive marmots who often come to greet the walkers at the end of the uphill climb to the lake. On a hot day the lake is the perfect location for a swim – it is quite shallow at the edges, so not too invigorating!
