Infos & Booking


Altitude passes and peaks over 3000 meters of altitude are on the program of this Vanoise high route trekking. During these 5 days in the Haute Maurienne valley you will approach the high summits and go from altitude meadows to a mineral universe.

You will enjoy the end of summer to go through the Vanoise National Park and the mountain adorned with its first autumn colors.

The + of this trek:

  • The discovery of the Vanoise National Park, a protected and preserved area.
  • A network of quality trails and refuges.
  • Magnificent landscapes, between valleys and high mountains.
  • Accessible passes and summits of over 3000 meters in altitude.

If you like trekking for several days, I also propose other hiking itineraries in Savoie: the balconies of Maurienne, the tour of the Mont-Cenis lake and the trek from the Étendard to the Aiguilles d'Arves, and, a little further south, the magnificent tour of Chambeyron in Ubaye.
