Standing in there, a guided hike to meet the marmots


Guided hike to meet marmots. After 6 months of hibernation, the groundhog woke up from a long sleep ... In the first days of Spring, from the beginning of April, the mountain meadows wander and play this great friendly rodent. Among the most characteristic animals of our mountains, the marmot brings a note of humor and fantasy in the harsh decor of the high altitude; its plump figure, its funny attitudes and its whistles make it an endearing animal. To those who are lazy in nature, appreciate their ease and love the contemplation of the great wilderness, a groundhog life would be perfect. We invite you! Family hike for all those in good physical shape and for children from 10 years old. Family hike for all those in good physical shape and for children from 10 years old. Positive elevation of about 450 m and 3 h 00 of effective walking. If you have any doubts about the physical difficulty of the hike, don't hesitate to call us on 06 43 67 27 44
