Tour of Oisans and Ecrins

Two weeks of active hiking, taking us to the foot of the highest summits in the southern Alps.From Le Bourg d'Oisans, the Tour of Oisans and Ecrins footpath begins its grand tour with the help of handrails to reach the small villages perched on the mountainside. It descends towards the Sarenne mountain stream and then goes up to the mountain pass, with a panorama over the Monts de Lans. We then go down towards Clavans and the Ferrand valley, before a fine climb as far as Besse-en-Oisans, at the edge of the vast Emparis plateau. Above, Col de Souchet offers a five-star view over the Meije. A descent of almost 1000 metres leads to La Grave. You then walk along the River Romanche as far as its source on the mountain pastures of Villar d'Arène. When you arrive at Col d'Arsine, the spectacle is astonishing. The mountainous setting is an invitation to visit the Arsine glacier lake before beginning our long descent along the Petit Tabuc mountain stream as far as the Guisane valley and Monêtier-les-Bains. Our destination is Vallouise via Col de l'Eychauda and the peaceful chalets of Chambran. 8 km of road along the Onde mountain stream bring us to the Jas Lacroix alpine pastures. Crossing Col de l'Aup Martin, the highest point in all the tour, is always rich in adventure, and the descent towards the Pré de la Chaumette is equally exciting. To reach Lake Vallonpierre and Valgaudemar, you have to take care crossing no less than three mountain passes carved out in the schist. Along the Séveraisse, the footpath joins La Chapelle-en-Valgaudemar and then rises through Villar Loubière as far as the Souffles refuge and the impressive Col de la Vaurze. Equally impressive is the descent towards the unspoilt Valjouffrey. The rich green Col de Côte Belle contrasts with the schist landscapes we have seen until now. Valsenestre, in the Béranger valley, comes as a well-earned break before we set off for the last few twists and turns. We arrive at the vertical Col de la Muzelle, leading to the Vénéon. One last mountain pass takes us to the biggest lake in L’Oisans, the Lauvitel, and we are back in Le Bourg d'Oisans. We have come full circle!You can follow the GR® 54 footpath either from Le Bourg d'Oisans, L'Argentière, La Grave or from any other village along the way.

A ride in the Bourg d'Oisans plain

This is a lovely circular ride, ideal for families, around the Bourg d'Oisans plain. In Rochetaillée, the remains of a Roman road, carved high up out of the rock, are a reminder that a lake, the Saint-Laurent, covered this plain 800 years ago. Route in "MTB in Oisans" guide (Oisans Tourisme) Departure/Arrival (loop): Bourg d'Oisans 720 m Length: 3 hours Distance: 18 km Highest point: 749 m Lowest point: 711 m Total height gain: +148 m Total height loss: -148 m Technique: 0/4 Endurance: 1/4 Map: Top 25 Bourg d'Oisans and l'Alpe d'Huez 3335 ET ROUTE Set off from the Bourg-d’Oisans tourist office, following signs for Grenoble. Ride past the bus station and after a further 400 m, turn left following signs for the «Four Cross». Turn right at La Molière and follow signs for Rochetaillée. Cross through the hamlet of La Paute. The road then turns into a track, the «Chemin Romain», until Rochetaillée. Once in Rochetaillée, look at the rock on the left for the surprising remains of the Roman road, built higher up due to the lake that filled the plain at this time. Several sections are still visible over a 300 m stretch. The well dug-out rock forms a 2.2 meter wide arch. Regularly spaced grooves show where a series of beams were positioned to support a wooden deck used to widen the road. This considerable construction work bears witness to the strategic importance of the Oisans road in Roman times, as it was the road that linked Gaul to Italy. In Rochetaillée, turn left onto the D1091 for just a few dozen metres, before turning right onto the «Chemin de Planche Ronde» to the «Pont Rouge». Cross over the bridge and carry on up to the junction, where you turn right towards Villard Reculas as far as Le Raffour (at the bottom of the hill). Turn right in Le Raffour and carry straight on to the dyke. Just after reaching the dyke, take a path to the left towards the Ruines de Vieille Morte. This somewhat sinister name refers to the «dead» arm of one of the many meanders of the Romanche River. In the last century, around 50 people lived in Vieille Morte and an inn provided a stopover for the inhabitants of the Olle Valley travelling to the Bourg-d’Oisans fairs and markets. Carry straight on to the «3 Ponts», followed by the hamlet of Basset, where you join up with the road. Follow it up to the junction with the road leading up to Alpe d’Huez. Take special care here as cars can come down quickly and visibility is not particularly good. Turn right back to Bourg-d’Oisans.

Cross-Country Ski Domain in Auris en Oisans

The Auris Nordic domain is 2 sectors for 2 wild atmospheres! With a total of 8 km, the Rochette loop is one of the Alpe d'Huez cross-country skiing itineraries. As for walking and snowshoeing, there are 3 groomed and secure pedestrian trails. SKI DE FOND Concerning the access to this loop of the Rochette, from the resort the most sporty will warm up by climbing the 200 meters of difference in altitude to the pass. For those who prefer to go "easy", the Auris express chairlift will do the job (pedestrian rate). Once at the pass, the cross-country skiers will join the Rochette loop after 2 short kilometres, then they will set off on the 2 km route which winds over a plateau in the hills opposite the Alpe d'Huez resort. Along the loop, pedestrians of all kinds (snowshoes, Nordic walking, walkers) are welcome but must give priority to cross-country skiers who must keep up the pace! The vast snow-covered expanses on the road to the Rochette plateau open up first to the peaks of the Écrins. Here, a little piece of Alaska has been invited into the Alps... You forget about the ski resort and the ski lifts until the view opens up onto Alpe d'Huez and the summits of the Grandes Rousses... And here again the magic happens! PEDESTRIAN PATHS With or without snowshoes, walkers will oxygenate themselves on one of the 3 groomed pedestrian trails of Auris: the "Col de Maronne", the "Piégut" forest and the "La Rochette" loop. The Auris Nordic domain is made up of 2 sectors for 2 wild atmospheres typical of the Oisans and its high mountain spirit. → Piégut sector On the Piégut forest side, the pedestrian route is a must in Auris as it goes into one of the highest spruce forests in Europe. The play of sunlight with the snow-laden branches, the animal tracks and the peaks that reveal themselves as you walk will transport you to Canada... As if you didn't need to go so far, Auris has enough to give you a change of scene. → Maronne / Rochette sector From the resort a route climbs 100m up to the Col de Maronne. This very accessible itinerary is exactly what you need for a short family outing. There are vast expanses of snow all the way up to the plateau and breathtaking views. Here, a little piece of Alaska has been invited into the Alps... The more athletic will only warm up, before continuing for another 2km. From then on, the whole Rochette plateau opens up to you for a wild moment of face-to-face contact with the summits. On the other hand, to reach the latter, those who prefer to go "easy", the Auris express chairlift will do the job! The 2 km loop in itself winds along a plateau in front of the Alpe d'Huez resort. Along the latter, pedestrians are welcome but must give way to cross-country skiers who must keep up the pace! In all, it's an 8 km journey through the fascinating winter landscapes... 8 km that clears the head, lengthens the holidays and makes memories!

Sophie Dode Artiste Peintre

Painter. The mountain landscape, the horizons, the nature ... as a starting point and inspiration towards a coloured abstraction, vector of energy, impulses, dreams. Sophie Dode works from her studio a few minutes from Les 2 Alpes. Somewhere between landscape and abstraction, her creativity is nourished by the landscapes that surround us, the mountains, their lights and nature through the seasons. Landscape" then becomes a springboard from which this artist springs towards form, colour and line. Sophie Dode's paintings speak of space, moments and light. But also of our inner movement in contemplating nature... of those emotions of reconnecting to ourselves, to our dreams, to the beauty of the moment. This passionate artist lovingly produces her own acrylic and pigment-based paints, decanting the water used in her practice, and sorting the workshop's waste in a way that respects the environment. EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS 2024 : -As every year, you can find Sophie's paintings on permanent display on the beautiful walls of the restaurant "La Porte d'à Coté". 70 avenue de La Muzelle. 38860 Les 2 Alpes. -A selected work is also exhibited all year round at the La Muzelle Estate Agency. 2 rue du Grand Plan, Les 2 Alpes. - Selected works exhibited every winter at the very welcoming Hôtel Les Mélèzes in Les 2 Alpes. - Visit your home to try out the paintings in situ.

The former Lac Saint-Laurent
707 m

The former Lac Saint-Laurent

The Bourg d'Oisans plain was hollowed out over the centuries by glaciers, before being filled by sediment from rivers that formed a lake, called the Lac St-Laurent. On several occasions over a very long period, this wide valley has been a lake. The Bourg d'Oisans basin is characteristic of the erosion and accumulation that occurred at the end of the tertiary and quaternary eras due to the glacial waters that dissected the mountainous mass, reducing it to a network of crests. The successive lakes and deposits of rivers filled the valley with sediment, but the glacial rock bar was backed up by another rock bar formed by two alluvial cones from mountain streams opposite the current Pont de la Véna bridge (just outside Livet on the way to Grenoble). Upstream, the Romananche river formed a lake, the Lac St-Laurent, which was regularly emptied. Bourg d'Oisans was then called Saint-Laurent du Lac. Prior to 1091, it is difficult to pinpoint an exact date as to when the lake was formed, although mentions of it have been found in documents dated 1058. In 1191, the Infernet was the scene of a terrible drama, when a substantial rock fall and landslide completrly blocked the flow of the Romanche, creating an insurmountable barrier. This caused the lake to spread to over 18 km in length, submerging the plain under 10 m of water. St Laurent du bord du Lac completely disappeared under the water and all the local inhabitants had to flee their homes, seeking safety on higher ground. According to some documents, the water rose to a level of 741 m above sea level. 28 years later, on 14 September 1219, the dam suddenly burst, creating a catastrophic flood that reached as far as Grenoble (known as the "Flood of Grenoble") killing some 5,000 people. The natural dam had given way under the sheer weight of the water and an enormous volume of water rushed into the gorge with the violence of a hurricane, sweeping away everything in its path, whether trees, fields or whole villages... Although smaller in size, the lake continue to exist for another three centuries, sometimes increasing in volume, as on 4 August 1465 after a terrible summer storm. In 1429, it was recorded that the lake had dried up, only to return at a later date. In 1540, reduced to a "puddle", it finally disappeared... Over the following centuries, the Romanche wended its way through the plain, causing regular floods. In the 18th century, dykes were built to contain the river and the plane was drained using the grid system that now makes for an original landscape. Once the plain had been restored, plans were made to clean it up and grow crops. Back in the 13th century, just after the 1219 catastrophe, the village of St Laurent became the centre of interest for all the local population and villages. The tantrums of the Romanche were only contained once and for all in 1935, with the construction of the Chambon Dam. Website: bourgdoisans.com / freneydoisans.com

Bourg-d'Oisans village

Here you are in Bourg-d'Oisans at an altitude of 700m: all around you are mountains and underfoot is the plain. This landscape has been shaped over thousands of years at the same time as the Alps were being created. The mountains you see, and the plain you walk on, are the consequences of shifting continents, the major ice ages and the subsequent warming. Humans have also helped shape this landscape over the last few centuries, adapting to and taking advantage of natural and geological constraints. The dammed rivers and the network of drainage canals, for example, have allowed the habitat to expand and agriculture to develop in the plain, creating a mountain "bocage" with fields and hedges. However, these actions have never eradicated certain natural hazards, such as avalanches and rockfalls. Half-wild and half-tamed, this landscape and its features are home to a multitude of animal and plant species, some of which are protected. Lake St Laurent: when the Vénéon-Romanche glacier retreated, it stagnated in the lower valley and a lake of more than 5,000 hectares then occupied the entire valley from Bourg-d'Oisans to Allemond. The alluvium deposited by the Romanche and the Vénéon gradually plugged up the lake and filled in the plain to a depth of 500m. In fact, if it weren't for the lake, which gradually filled in, the village would only be at an altitude of 200m! Bourg-d'Oisans is now a delightful little town of international renown where mountain lovers come, both in summer and winter, to stay and enjoy the many activities on offer!
