Earn Your Dinner
Hikers with a penchant for good food can get stuck into five days of hiking in
the Vénéon valley in the heart of the wild and beautiful Ecrins National Park,
discovering local delicacies and overnighting in refuges, hotels and B&Bs on
the way.

Electronically Assisted Adventures
New for 2016, Val d’Arly has put together a three-day autonomous E-bike tour
of the beautiful valley beneath Mont Blanc via over 100km of marked cycle

cycling in the mountains.
