Hiking Stars


Hiking stars reward children and motivate them to walk. It’s simple: on presentation of a photo of the young walker (on a camera, smartphone) in the following places, a diploma and medal (in the shape of an edelweis) will be awarded: the Epines Blanches (bronze star), the Evettes Lake (silver star) Ban Rouge (gold star). Three walks, three levels, from the easiest to the most difficult!
