Description

I propose you to leave for a very beautiful winter immersion of two days, snowshoes on your feet, around the magnificent Aiguille du Fruit in the Vanoise National Park.

From Courchevel to Méribel, you will discover a wild itinerary made of wide open spaces, in the heart of the Tarentaise valley in Savoie. You will also have the opportunity to spend the night in the middle of the mountains, in an unguarded refuge.

If the schedulded dates do not suit you, do not hesitate to propose yours.

And if you like snowy treks, I propose other magnificent itineraries in the region:

Or you can opt for this tour of the Aiguille du Fruit, but in summer and with bivouac.
