With mountain experience and adequate physical preparation, each stage of the walk will take six or seven hours at a moderate pace. Total height gain and loss is + – 1.200 metres per day.
The route is well-used. There are parts which coincide with the GR11, with the Haute Route Pyrenean or with the Camino de Santiago. High up you can find snowfields, shale slopes and steep, rocky stretches.
La Senda de Camille as such is not marked, although there are some route markers, commonly cairns (piles of stones) and the red and white GR markers. Compass and map reading skills are therefore essential.
If you are physically fit but inexperienced in mountain walking, you can still enjoy the splendorous of this trek by going with one of our mountain guides.
Your rucksack shouldn’t weigh more than 10kgs. Recommended kits includes mountain boots, walking trousers, thermal sweater, waterproofs, fleecy top, hat and thin gloves, sunhat, sunglasses, high protection sun cream, rucksack, water bottle, torch and walking poles.
