The Aiguilles Rouges natural reserve is great for hikes and also for rock climbing. There are several lakes that one can hike up to. Lac Blanc is the best known because there is a nice restaurant up there. The other lakes are more "wild nature"....More

Stunning rock climbs with access to the starting points made easier by the cable car and chair lift up to the Index! Views across the valley to the Mere de Glace and the Mont Blanc massif are fantastic. Did the Voie Gaspard route - E1,...More
