Mini Trek – In the heart of the Bauges range

Let's take a tour of the Arcalod (2217m), the highest peak of the Bauges range. This two-day hike will take place in the wildest part of the range, partly in the wildlife and hunting reserve. This will be an opportunity, with a little luck, to observe mountain goat in their environment but also to enjoy a preserved natural environment. The night will take place in an old alpine farm with a sublime view of Mount Pécloz. On the program, campfire, magnificent panoramas, rustic atmosphere for a change of scenery.

Wild tour of the Arcalod peak (2217m)

Highlights of the trek

  • A wild itinerary
  • A preserved massif
  • A little frequented route

Day 1 : Half-tour North of Arcalod  

D+1230m D-610m Dist 10km 6h00 of walking

Cool departure from the small typical hamlet of Précherel. Our ascent will be in a forest valley between the Mont Trélod and the Arcalod. Once we reach the Chérel pass, the hike becomes more technical on steeper paths with magnificent panoramas. One more effort and we are at the Orgeval pass. The view that emerges is splendid, the refuge is not very far.

Night in the refuge (Dormitory). Attention, no shower in the refuge, the toilet will be done at the source with the glove.

Day 2 : Half-tour South of the Arcalod   

D+830m D-1450m Dist 11km 7h30 walk (sporty option with the ascent of the Arcalod peak)

D+470m D-1090m Dist 9km 5h walk (cool option without the ascent of the Arcalod peak)

After a breakfast at the refuge, we have two possibilities. The first one is to climb the Pointe de l'Arcalod, the highest summit of the Bauges, in order to enjoy its panoramic view on the lake of Annecy in the early morning. This is a steep out-and-back route. The second option is to take the direction of the Mont de la Coche to get some height and come back on the side of Precherel directly.

And if you still want more, why not try the multi-day treks?
