Crossing the pass, you will pass from the Savoie department to the Hautes-Alpes department but you will also enter the vast Écrins national park.

 

It stretches between Grenoble, Gap and Briançon, covering 925 km², including almost 10,000 hectares of glaciers. The Ecrins National Park owes its status to its great biological, cultural and historical wealth. It has a specific fauna and flora, which are a delight for nature lovers, as are the numerous hiking trails. 

Explore the mythical peaks of this national park, which reaches an altitude of 4,100 m, including the famous Barre des Ecrins.

Take a deep breath of fresh air and enjoy outdoor sports in a magical setting, in summer and winter.

 

Take advantage of the proximity of our hotel to discover the landscapes of this superb natural area. Enjoy the Meije and Arsine glaciers and the Combeynot and Douche lakes. While walking, you will surely have the opportunity to see chamois, ibexes or marmots.

If you wish to extend these moments of nature within protected areas, go to the other nearby national park, the Vanoise, during your stay in Valloire. A real paradise for hikers, the park offers a network of 400 km of marked paths which criss-cross between villages and resorts and allow you to admire the hundred or so peaks which exceed 3000 m in altitude.

The park also offers numerous interpretive trails that invite you to discover the fauna, flora and ancestral traditions of this beautiful mountainous region.
