Trek - Tour des Cerces - Mont Thabor

The Cerces massif has a little air of Dolomites, some people call it "the small French Dolomites" in reference to the rock that makes up part of the mountains of the massif. You just have to enter the narrow valley to find the ingredients of the famous Italian massif: vertical rocky peaks, larch forests, even the refuges have Italian names, a little subtlety of this Italian enclave in the middle of French territory. Located between the Écrins to the west and the Vanoise to the north, the Cerces massif is dotted with lakes and rivers which make it a privileged place for bivouacs. It is crossed by two main valleys which are the narrow valley and the Clarée valley. The highest point of our itinerary, the Mount Thabor at 3178m will be the opportunity to enjoy an exceptional panorama!

The little French dolomites

Strong points of the trip

  • An itinerary far from civilization
  • The sunny climate of the Southern Alps
  • The multitude of lakes and rivers
  • Spectacular views of the Ecrins and the Vanoise
  • The ascent of the Mont Thabor

We propose you to discover the Cerces massif in a 5 days and 4 nights itinerary from refuge to refuge. Our route will start in the Italian enclave of the narrow valley, for a first short day of warm up. The melezin gives way to a much more mineral environment as we gain altitude. On the second day, we will start the ascent of Mount Thabor which culminates at 3178m. The itinerary will be strewn with lakes and rivers with a high mountain background as we will see the Vanoise and Écrins massifs successively. On our route, we will also find stigmata of the Maginot line as well as old graphite mines formerly exploited.

In short, the Cerces is a summary of wild mountains in a preserved massif far from civilization. To discover absolutely!

And if you are still asking for more, why not try treks on other mountain range?
