Mini Trek - In the heart of the Bauges

Mini Trek - In the heart of the Bauges

Let's set off together on a tour of Arcalod (2217m), the highest peak in the Bauges. This two-day hike will take place in the wildest part of the massif, partly in the natural hunting and wildlife reserve. If you're lucky, you'll be able to see chamois in their natural habitat, but also enjoy an unspoilt natural setting. The overnight stay will take place in a former forester's house, restored as a cosy refuge with a sublime view of Mont Pécloz. On the agenda: magnificent panoramas, a wild atmosphere and the chance to observe wildlife with relative ease.

In the heart of the Bauges massif

In the heart of the Bauges massif


  • A wild and little-visited itinerary
  • An unspoilt massif
  • A cosy refuge

Day 1: North half-tour of Arcalod  

D+1220m D-600m Dist 12.6km 6h00 walking time

A cool start from the typical hamlet of Précherel. Our ascent takes us through a forested valley between Mont Trélod and Arcalod. Arriving at the Col de Chérel, the hike becomes more technical on steeper paths with magnificent panoramas. One last effort and we're at the Col d'Orgeval. The view of Mont Pécloz is splendid, and the refuge is not far off.

Night in refuge (dormitory).

Day 2: Arcalod South Half-Tour   

D+485m D-1120m Dist 11.6km 5h walk

We take advantage of the refuge's terrace to have breakfast in a calm atmosphere facing Mont Pécloz. Today we'll be passing the foot of the Pointe d'Arcalod, the highest peak in the Bauges massif. We continue towards Mont de la Coche and switch to the Précherel side via Plan Molard and Plan de la Limace. Return to the starting point via the croix d'allant.
