Allibert Trekking offers you a 7 days itinerant trip (level 3) to discover the Mercantour Park and the Vallée des Merveilles, its exceptional setting with a great variety of landscapes, lakes and fauna, as well as prehistoric engraving sites, with accommodation in gites and refuges.

* Day 2: Day 2 : Hike in the larch forest. Night at the Madone de Fenestre refuge.

* Day 3: A very mineral stage awaits us today with passages at the foot of the last 3000 meters of the Alps: the Gélas (3143 m), the Malédie (3059 m) and the Clapier (3045 m). A high mountain atmosphere on an itinerary used by the mountaineers of the region in search of beautiful routes.

From there, a vast panorama opens up with the high peaks of the Mercantour or the whole Mediterranean coastline! Crests or lakes of Prals, the itinerary will be at the appreciation of your guide. End of the stage at the Madone refuge.

* Day 7 : The ridge landscape will reveal the sea in the distance. End of the stay after the hike, at the Boréon.

The strong points of the stay:
