The village of Clavans

Clavans-en-Haut-Oisans, at the foot of the Massif des Grandes Rousses mountains at an altitude of about 1400 m.
The two villages that make up Clavans (Clavans le Haut and Clavans le Bas) are only two kilometers from each other, located between the Cassini mountain (panoramic view of the Oisans region from the top), the Grandes Rousses range, and the Ferrand river, a torrent with frothing water after which this charming valley has been named.

When the weather is fine, hikers can escape from this deep valley via the Sarenne pass, a marvelous, still-wild balcony on the Meije massive, for an easy climb up to the top of Cassini.

Other hikes, such as the Grand Sablat glacier, which can be skied down in winter from the Pic Blanc, and the climb up the Cerisier, or to Clos Chevalleret are some destinations for pleasant summer days, without forgetting the traditional climb to the Quirlies lake.

Clavans is located on the GR54 hiking trail through the Oisans region.
