Guidebook to walking in the Écrins national park, France. The Massif des Écrins is one of the most spectacular regions in all the Alps. Most of the area is a national park, with summits over 3000m high. Well-marked trails and a network of alpine huts make the Ecrins accessible to walkers.


Seasons: July to mid-September temperatures in the Ecrins range from 25°C to 28°C, but heavy rain and even snowfall can occur. Accommodation may be busy during this period. September is often more settled than July or August, but with lower temperatures.
Centres: Walks centred on valley bases in Vallée de la Romanche, Vallée de la Guisane, Vallée de la Vallouise, Valgaudemar, Valjouffrey and Vallée du Vénéon. Difficulty: Suitable for all experienced walkers, from alpine novices to experts. All walks are graded for difficulty. Must See: Staying in one of the alpine huts, spectacular scenery (glaciers and peaks over 3000m abound), rustic alpine hamlets, picturesque lakes, abundant wildlife and willdflowers.

This guidebooks describes 70 mountain walking routes in the Ecrins National Park. Easily reached from Grenoble, the Massif des Écrins is one of the most spectacular regions in all the Alps. Most of the area is a national park, containing bold mountains hung with glaciers, and more than 100 summits over 3000m high. The park offers a profusion of alpine flowers, and romantic old villages and hamlets huddle in the valleys.

This is mountain country par excellence, but hundreds of kilometres of well-marked trails and a network of alpine huts make the Ecrins accessible to walkers. The highest peaks form a block at the very heart of the range, with a diverse assortment of valleys surrounding or spreading from it – Vallée de la Romanche, Vallée de la Guisane, Vallée de la Vallouise, Valgaudemar, Valjouffrey and Vallée du Vénéon. For this second edition of the guide, Kev Reynolds has chosen the best routes from each of these valley bases.
