Serre Chevalier, Walking &...

Serre Chevalier is situated just beyond the north eastern boundary of the vast protected wilderness that is the Parc Des Ecrins (Ecrins National Park) and only a few miles northwest of the smaller Parc Du Oueyras, also a national park that runs down to the border with Italy. As one would expect the range of walking here is unsurpassed. But remarkably the trekking itinerary is pretty impressive without the need to tap into either of these parks as hikers have 350 kilometers of marked walking trails to explore in the Guisane Valley alone.

Serre Chevalier also features as a node on two notable GR (Grandes Randonnée) long distance walking routes namely the GR50, Tour du Haut Dauphiné and the GR54, Tour du l’Oisans. The immediate area is covered on the IGN (Institut Geographique National) Top 25 series map 3536OT. Other useful IGN’s could be the 3537ET and 3637OT which cover the Du Oueyras National Park and the 3436ET that covers the section of Parc Des Ecrins just west of Serre Chevalier.
