Tour Le Otto Montagne: excursion in the wild valley of Graines and the lakes of Frudière

Suggestive circular excursion

By: Visit Brusson

Route category: Trekking

Duration: 7 hours

Difficulty: Medium

Lago di frudière

DATES: 3 and 24 June, 8 July, 5 August, 16 September

DEPARTURE: 8:30

Description of the route: the route begins along a dirt road before entering a beautiful mule track in the Frudière valley, crossing coniferous forests, rhododendrons, blueberries, and passing by alpine pastures and old ruins. The Frudière lake is located in a "magical" basin with bright colors, thanks to the many streams, dense vegetation, the last pastures, and the reflection of the lake. A lunch break at the lake follows. The return journey passes through the Lake pastures, Chastellet, and then the bridge at the crossroads, along the same route as the outward journey, which can be alternated with pieces of an old mule track.

The route includes a packed lunch, prepared by 'Il Pranzo di Babette", another location that appears in the film and transported by the mule during the excursion.

Equipment: 

-water and snacks

-trekking shoes, fleece, anorak, sunglasses, sunscreen

-hiking poles highly recommended

Price: 

€50 adults

€30 children under 14 years

The fee includes an Environmental Hiking Guide, a mule that will transport the packed lunch, its owner and the picnic organized by the restaurant "The Lunch of Babette".

Important:

-For an ecological choice, water in bottles will not be provided, so each participant is requested to bring enough water for the entire duration of the excursion (at least 1 liter).

-In case of inappropriate clothing, you may be excluded from participation.

-The Guide reserves the right to modify the itinerary for adverse weather and safety reasons, or to lengthen or shorten the itinerary for the physical condition of the group.

-Dogs are allowed only if kept on a leash.

-At the time of registration, please remember to communicate any allergies or food intolerances, indicating them in the appropriate space on the membership form.

-The accident insurance policy is not included in the fee. If you deem it appropriate, each participant in the trip can independently take out an insurance policy for the activity carried out.

-The excursions will also take place in cloudy and light rain conditions. In the case of adverse weather conditions that are deemed dangerous, the excursion will be canceled and rescheduled for another date, based on the availability of the Guide. If it is not possible to reschedule the trip, the participation fee will be fully refunded.

-The excursions will be confirmed four days before the scheduled date and will start with a minimum number of 6 participants. If an excursion is not confirmed due to a lack of minimum registered participants, the entire amount paid at the time of registration will be refunded to each participant.
