Description

This roaming that I propose to you between 1900 and 3400m or more is an exclusivity!

On the program: high mountains and preserved alpine meadows in the heart of the Vanoise National Park, splendour and an area little frequented except by ibexes, chamois and other species of our mountains, glacial lakes and grandiose panoramas while climbing several summits (Pierre Brune, Pointe de la Sana, Bezin and Met).

Go for an original trek with multiple facets, with a view of high walls such as the Grande Casse, Méan Martin and the Maurienne peaks.

Accommodation is in pleasant refuges. You have to carry your personal belongings during the 4 days.
