GR54, Tour de l'Oisans - July 2007

Described in Walking in the Alps as 'more strenuous, more demanding, and with a much greater sense of remoteness' compared with the Tour du Mont Blanc, the Tour de l'Oisans sounded very promising indeed. We arrived in Bourg d'Oisans about 7pm after 2 separate bus journeys from Geneva. Only just in time to get a camping gas cannister from the sports shop, and some bits and pieces from a small supermarket near the bus station. Plenty of good campsites, and we plumped for the one opposite the big supermarket, as it was the nearest to the centre.
