Important : The programme is given as an indication.
The Aravis region is full of trails, each one more beautiful than the next. To vary the pleasures, the guides are free to use their imagination and to propose other itineraries! Situations beyond our control may also lead us to modify the itineraries and activities of the day (weather, level of participants, group safety...).

Please note that on some days, the departure may be a little earlier and not suitable for people who have a child of their own.


L'Auberge Nordique has several minibuses at its disposal to get to the starting point of the hikes, but some trips can be made with the participants' cars.

Level of participants: our guides are the best judges of the level of participants. If a participant does not meet the specified level criteria, he or she may be offered a more suitable course! The Auberge Nordique cannot be held responsible for any lack of level observed during the stay.

In the mountains, temperature differences can be significant if the wind picks up or if there is a thunderstorm. It is better to bring warm and waterproof clothes even in summer.
