Forests, peaks and high-altitude lakes follow your progress on the GR® 738, a spectacular new GR® that winds its way through the heart of the Belledonne massif. While the first few days may seem a bit like a warm-up, as you make your way along rather bucolic paths, the rock faces soon make their appearance. The Col de la Frêche and then the Col d’Arpenjon provide an escape route to the Refuge des Férices.
The traverse along the 7 Laux lakes will leave you with unforgettable memories of your journey.
From cols to refuges, from lakes to wooded forests, the GR® 738 takes you right across the Belledonne massif. 10,000 meters of ascent in ten days. 140 kilometers between Savoie and Isère, offering breathtaking panoramic views of emblematic peaks such as Mont-Blanc, the Grands Moulins (Belledonne’s emblematic peak) and the Lauzière.
