Chalet Alpin de la Bérarde

Located at the foot of La Meije and Les Ecrins, the Chalet Alpin de La Bérarde mountain lodge is set among one of the largest Alpine massifs, in the heart of the Ecrins National Park.

Many generations of mountaineers have visited the village of La Bérarde in the wake of Pierre Gaspard who made the first ascent of La Meije. This comfortable and cosy chalet is an integral part of this unique village. You can leave your car behind and indulge yourself in walking, climbing, skiing or just relaxing.

Location supplement

Depending on snow conditions, the road may be closed to traffic in the winter between Champhorent and La Bérarde, and as a consequence, the hamlets of Les Etages and La Bérarde may not be accessible by car. The road opens towards the end of March when the Chalet de la Bérarde reopens for the ski-mountaineering season.
