Description

Écrins

The Massif des Écrins is a high Alpine region east of Grenoble. Highest summit is the Barre des Écrins, 4.102 m. The GR54, Tour de l'Oisans, and the GR50, Tour des Écrins, both make a round tour possible in this large and partly glaciated mountain area. It is reasonably protected, compared to other French Alpine regions.
