Infos & Booking


I propose you to go for a 2-day hike around the Aiguille du Fruit in Vanoise, in order to discover the beautiful Rateau lake, a small paradise still preserved and far from the ski lifts of Courchevel.

This route without any difficulty links Méribel and Courchevel, two famous ski resorts in the Tarentaise valley. You'll enjoy several mountain landscapes of alpine meadows and lakes, ending at the foot of the Aiguille du Fruit, a magnificent peak rising to 3051 meters of altitude.

During this two-day trekking, you'll only need to carry your personal belongings, as well as your bivouac (light tent, sleeping bag, ground sheet).

If the proposed dates don't suit you, don't hesitate to contact me to propose yours: departures can also be made on request.

And if you enjoy multi-day hikes , I suggest other magnificent itineraries in Savoie:


D1: Hike between alpine grassland and glacial moraines starting from Méribel.
On this first day's walk, you'll discover the superb Fruit valley and pass the Saut refuge, before climbing to the Col de Chanrouge for a short incursion into the Vanoise National Park.
This is followed by an initial descent, a short ascent to the Col du Rateau and a final short descent to the Lac du Rateau at 2450 meters of altitude, where we set up camp for the night.
