Enjoy the unspoilt nature of the National Park without sacrificing comfort!

Between the high valleys of Maurienne and Tarentaise, the Vanoise massif is a condensed version of all the richness of the Alps: geological crossroads, protected climatic conditions and altitudes that range up to the 3855m of La Grande Casse allow for a magnificent diversity of landscapes, flowers and the remarkable presence of all the alpine fauna, on the limit of the "High Mountain".

This is our revisited Tour des Glaciers, with accommodation in rooms and new stages. A tour for a privileged immersion in this exceptional mountain!
