5 Peaks or nothing! Active Hikes Holiday based out of the hotel with a Mountain Leader

Hiking enthusiasts, the Clarée ‘3000-ers’ await you!

This Hiking Holiday is aimed at active hikers with good fitness levels. With your mountain leader you climb the Clarée Valley’s five iconic peaks, with the summit of the highest, Mont Thabor, sitting at an altitude of 3180m. You can admire the Alps stretching away seemingly endlessly from the summit of each of these mountains, including views of the Barre des Écrins, Monte Viso and Mont Blanc… No ropes are required as these walks are mountain hikes.

Each evening you return to the hotel where the restorative bubbles of the Jacuzzi, a detoxing sauna and the magic touch of our masseuses will help your aching muscles recover!
