Day 1 : La montagne des Auges Up 540m Down 590m 5h00 walking
The first day of the hike begins with a loop on the Glières plateau. Depending on the weather and snow conditions, we will reach the Auges mountain, which will offer us a breathtaking panorama of Mont Blanc and the Aravis. The lunch break will take place in an old mountain pasture farm where we will be able to taste the typical Savoyard products (potato fritters, tartiflette, etc.)
Overnight in a cottage (in a dormitory).
Day 2 : La montagne des Frêtes Up 580m Down 530m 5h00 walking
On the second day, we will head for the mountain of frêtes. We will travel off-road in the snow-laden spruce forest in search of animal track. Your guide will explain the basics of building a snow shelter. After a picnic in the middle of nature, it will be time to find your way back.
