About : Off the beaten track in the Col d’Ornon

My name is Fabrice Lair and I'm a state-qualified trek leader. I'm based in the heart of Oisans, in a beautiful little valley on the way up to the Col d'Ornon and on the edge of the Ecrins National Park, called the Lignarre Valley.

My aim is to share my passion for the mountains by offering different types of themed hikes for all levels, including learning more about the plant and wildlife, enjoying exceptional panoramic views and sharing the experience of a night in a bivouac...

So if you have always dreamed of exploring the mountains and their fabulous landscapes, whether you are a novice or a seasoned hiker, take the plunge and come with me. I will walk with you, up into the heart of the Lignarre valley, for some magnificent discoveries.

A half-day hike suitable for regular walkers.
