Tour Of The Oisans

By Kev Reynolds

The Tour of the Oisans on the GR54 is a challenging two-week trek around the Ecrins National Park (southeast of Grenoble) in France, one of the most visually spectacular regions in all the Alps. In the course of 10–13 days it covers 176km and climbs more than 12,800m to cross a series of challenging cols that separate deep and enchanting valleys. The scenery is spectacular and ever varied, and with charming villages and hamlets to visit on the way, the trekker’s experience is both rich and rewarding. Accommodation is in valley hotels or gîtes, or in mountain refuges set in idyllic locations.

  • The route is divided into 10 stages, but with suggestions for a 13-day itinerary.
  • Alternative stages are also described.
  • Full accommodation details given.
  • Background information on how to get there, what to take, mountain safety, and notes on the flora and fauna of the region.
  • Illustrated with colour maps and photographs.
