You're coming the week of


Situated in the middle of the Alpes, and accessible on foot from MONTGENEVRE, the Chenaillet massif is an ancient witness to the alpine oceanic crust. (older than 150 million years old)

This is the reason for the fame of this massif, which shows rocks out in the open air that can usually only be reached in today's oceans at the cost of extremely expensive oceanographic missions.

A oceanic fossil intact at 2500m of altitude!

Enjoy a hike on this amazing terrain accompanied by a qualified guide from the Maison de la Géologie et du Geoparc in Briançon.
