Let’s go to Heidi’s world! Mountain Holiday for all the Family

In Névache, introduce your children to the joys of the mountains !

Family holidays with the youngest (from 5) in a protected valley to discover the mountain environment. Activites adapted to the rhythm of children. Treks to meet wild animals and the goats on a farm where cheese is made, a hike with sled dogs and finally an unforgettable experience : a night in a moutain hut !

This holiday can be combined with our other holiday "The Claree Valley in all its glory!"  for older children (from 10).


Programme of Mountain Holiday for all the Family:

Here is an example of the programme : the activites can be switched to another day of the week.

On Sunday: welcome to Névache

  • Information meeting at 7 pm with the mountain leader.

On Monday: Marmot trek along the Clarée river

  • Picnic by the river, then return to the hotel in the afternoon.
  • A 2-to-3-hour walk, a 100 meter difference in height.

On Tuesday: Sled dogs and Dog hike

  • In the morning you will meet the sled dogs and their mushers : you will visit their kennel and discover the different pack breeds, then you will go on a "dog-hike", which is a very playful activity. We will wear a wide belt and will be linked to the dog thanks to a tether with shock absorber. You will share friendship moments with the dogs.
  • Picnic above Briançon, and free visit of the city.
  • Return to the hotel in the late afternoon.

You will taste local cheeses and cold meats, then you will make small boats and water mills with the bark and wood of trees. Return to the hotel in the afternoon.

On Thursday: Bardonecchia’s market, italian icecreams, then night in a mountain hut

  • In the morning, we will cross the italian border to stroll through the market of the neighbouring small town of Bardonecchia, a perfect time to taste a good italian icecream ! On our way back, we will stop for a picnic on the plateau of the Echelle pass. Then we will return to the hotel to pack our bags before walking up to the Chardonnet mountain hut, where we will enjoy the warm atmosphere of the end of the day.
