This hiking / trekking route takes place in the heart of the Vanoise National Park in Savoie and it allows you to evolve almost permanently at more than 2000 meters altitude, in a majestic setting, that of the glaciers of the Vanoise.

Ibex, chamois, marmots at the turn of the trail, eagles, vultures in the air, are part of the many wildlife of this preserved area. Mountain lakes are present all along the route.
