Hiking Stars

3 walks, 3 levels: from the easiest to the most difficult! It’s simple: on presentation of a photo of the young walker (on a camera, smartphone) on one of the three summits, a diploma and medal (in the shape of an edelweiss) will be awarded depending on the level of difficulty. All three walks are less than 2 hours.
