The Upper Bréda Valley

Located halfway between Grenoble and Chambéry, the Haut Bréda valley is an ideal place for hiking in the Belledonne massif. It includes the former villages of La Ferrière and Pinsot, as well as the hamlet of Fond de France, now grouped together to form the commune of Haut Bréda. Many enthusiasts have hiked in Haut Bréda to reach the lakes of the 7 Laux.

A wild and wonderful valley

Walking enthusiasts will love the tour of the Pays d’Allevard, while trekking fans and experienced hikers will enjoy the tour of the lakes. The 7 Laux hike takes 7.30 hours and covers a distance of 21.5km. The altitude difference is 1500 meters. These hikes take you through the Haut Breda valley.

“In the heart of the mountain village of Haut Bréda,
discover a lively and original museum: Le musée des Forges et Moulins de Pinsot”.

Sound trails

If you’d like to interest younger visitors and introduce them to hiking in a more playful way, you can take the Haut Bréda valley sound trails. 2 circuits, one lasting an hour and the other 2 hours, punctuated by 30-minute sound testimonials, allow you to criss-cross the Haut Bréda valley to discover its most interesting places.

The sound trail includes photos and testimonials from the valley’s inhabitants. Children will love searching for the kiosks and flashing the codes, while listening to a living account of the history of this valley ruled by iron and minerals.

Finally, at the end of the road leading up the Haut Breda valley is the Pleynet site, an integral part of the 7 Laux.
