There are so many walking, hiking, steep uphill climbs or loop trails to choose from in Villard-Reculas and the surrounding area, suitable for all levels of ability. From the Villard-Reculas Alpine pastures to the Pic Blanc at Alpe d’Huez, via the waterfalls, lakes and mountain streams, just enjoy the pure mountain air and wonder at the breathtaking views. A revitalising experience guaranteed!

The many hiking trails to suit all kinds of walkers will lead you around the Grandes Rousses mountains and the Ecrins National Park.
Information about the how the trails are waymarked, as well as maps and guide books are available to purchase at the Tourist Office and online, so you can explore the very best itineraries of Oisans and stop for an overnight stay, or longer, in a refuge for an atypical experience in the great outdoors.

Some of our favourites:

  • From Villard-Reculas to Oz resort
    A mountainside trail through the forest with a magnificent view of Eau d’Olle valley and the Belledone mountain range.

  • Lac Besson and Alpette plateau
    An easy hike that leads you from lake to lake, from one side of the natural balcony cliff perched between Eau d’Olle valley and the Pic Blanc, to the other. This mountain plateau links Alpe d’Huez to the Fare mountain refuge at Alpette.

  • Emparis plateau
    The vast meadows of Emparis plateau resemble a small-scale version of the steppe ecoregion in Central Asia. This is a classified site where, in the summer, the meadows are transformed into an ocean of flowers with a breathtaking view of the Meije glaciers.
