Passionate about trekking and photography, I created this website in 2021 to share my hiking routes. My camera is a Canon EOS 100D, which I chose mainly for its lightness. However light it is, I don't always take it on my long treks, because the smallest gram counts in the bivouac! It is for this reason that the photos in this section of the site are generally of lower quality.

The itinerant hike
In summer, I favor bivouac hiking because it offers complete freedom of movement. As a reminder, a bivouac is a temporary camp: the tent is pitched in the evening and removed in the morning. It is authorized in most French and Italian parks, unlike wild camping. In bivouac, the backpacks are generally quite heavy, between 10 and 15kg for me. However, I have a friend who manages to leave with less than 10kg, optimizing the slightest gram!
In winter, camping being a little too 'hardcore' for my taste, I often choose to sleep in cabins with free access. To find them and organize your hike, a single reference: the indispensable site refuges.info !
Itinerant hiking is generally not improvised overnight. Thus, if you have questions concerning the routes of this site, do not hesitate to contact me by the form of the home page. In general, it is important to take the necessary precautions because the mountain routes can be dangerous. Always carry a good map, a headlamp, warm clothes, a first aid kit and a survival blanket. Leave with suitable equipment and take the weather into account. In winter, it is essential to have a DVA equipment (Arva and shovel), and whether you are on skis or snowshoes. And it's always better when you don't go alone on a dangerous route (although I myself have broken this rule more than once…).
