Auberge la cure is an ideal place to start marvelous hikes throughout the region/in the mountains. The hotel is situated around the corner from the National Parc des Écrins which is a heaven for every mountain lover or mountaineer. You can discover the national park during a day hike or by hiking from hut to hut.
Outside the park there are also lots of hiking possibilities like the marked routes of the GR (Grand Route) or one of the many regional hiking routes to serene alpine lakes, marvelous mountain passes and remote mountain huts. Hopefully you’ll encounter some of the amazing wildlife of the region like an ibex, mouflon or gems along your way.
The best months to enjoy the mountains by foot are September and October because of the temperate weather, the marvelous autumn colors and the lack of other tourists.
In the Auberge we are glad to help you plan any hike you would like to do.
