5 easy multi-day family treks in the Alps :

Cross the Beaufortain in 5 days :

The Beaufortain, with its mountain pastures and lakes, is a great massif to cross with young children (aged between 6 and 7). It's the ideal place, with short walks and plenty of refuges, for a 3 to 5 day itinerary ! Discover the Beaufortain traverse.

Discover Haute Maurienne in the heart of the Vanoise Park :

I'm sure your children are sporty and well-suited to adventure, so let's set off to cross passes at an altitude of over 3,000 metres. The Vanoise is high in altitude, and the refuges are often at 2,500 metres, so the difference in altitude is around 700 to 800 metres, and the ibexes and patous will be there too !

Dare to experience the high mountains of the Mont Rose Massif with a trek to acclimatise to the altitude : 

Your children have already caught the mountain bug, so from the age of 10 you can try your hand at discovering the Mont Rose massif, the second highest peak in the Alps. We've found you the best days of the Tour du Mont Rose, with a bit of mountaineering at the end to keep young and old alike happy. The accommodation and refuges are Italian, so they're top notch!

To ensure the trip runs smoothly, we're aiming to climb gradually in altitude, and with the guidance of a mountain guide, we'll be heading for peaks of up to 4000 metres!

Discover the Ecrins in the heart of the Valgaudemar valley, the little Himalayas !

If you're in the mood for a wild and easy trek with your children, we've had to look at the maps several times to find a trek that's accessible to children in the heart of the Ecrins massif. Check out this link to find out !

An unusual trek just a stone's throw from Mont Blanc :

If you fancy sleeping in a tepee or a yurt while watching Mont Blanc with your children during a three-day family trek along wild paths to avoid the crowds, then this trek with unusual accommodation is for you !

What's the difference between a trek and a family hike?

When you go on a trek, you're obviously roaming around for several days, whereas when you go on a rando, it's a star trek, so you have less to carry. Either way, it's a real eye-opener, so the choice is yours !

The best family trekking tours in the Alps

A great mountain trek is all very well, but you need to find one that's easy to adapt to each member of the family. You need to know the itineraries and plan Bs so as not to take risks with your children... If you're not used to dealing with maps, the weather and all the other things that can complicate a good trek, we advise you to let yourself be guided to discover the fauna, flora and legends of our mountains.
The Vanoise and Val d'Aoste Valleys, which we know well, are great starting points for your adventure !
