Our Family Programs:

Trek at the heart of the Vanoise National Park

Located between the high valleys of the Maurienne and Tarentaise in the French Sovoy, the Vanoise National Park was the first National Park created in France in 1963.

Very rich in flora and fauna, the Vanoise Park borders with the Gran Paradiso National Park in Italy along 14 km with, to form the largest natural reserve in Europe: the ibex and the bearded vulture are the two protected species which are symbols of these two Parks.

We offer a route that crosses the heart of the Park, passing through easy passes, at the feet of the beautiful and imposing glaciers of the Park, such as those of the Grande Casse (3855 m), the Grande Motte and the Dôme de la Sache (3588m). A wild route with altitude passages that alternate with the Vanoise vast pastures and the magical environment of its lakes.

Trekking Tour du Beaufortain

Beaufortain is a wild massif, plenty of snow in winter, which made its reputation thanks to the most famous ski mountaineering race "La Pierra-Menta". We will start from the extreme south of the Mont-Blanc Massif to cross Beaufortain, in the footsteps of Gargantua and its Brèche, to then pass at the feet of Pierra Menta and continue towards Arèches and its summits: we will climb the Grade Journée, summit above Albertville, and perhaps the Mirantin, to finish in the country of Beaufort. Evenings at the refuge will be cozy and relaxing.
