Discover the Peisey-Nancroix valley in winter
The "fond de Vallée" as the inhabitants of Peisey-Nancroix call it, is the small cirque of Gavarnie in the Tarentaise, nestled at the foot of two glacial peaks: Mont Pourri and the impressive north face of Bellecote. On the program of this outing, observation of animals and discovery of the splendid baroque chapel of Notre Dame des Vernettes. This outing is offered on request from December to April, starting from Peisey-Nancroix.
The morning will be cool and will lead us in the frozen meanders of the Ponthurin. Telescopes and binoculars will be available to observe chamois and ibexes, as well as the pair of bearded vultures that hovers over the valley, winter being the breeding period for the latter. A packed lunch will be served in the open air or in front of the fireplace of the cross-country skiing center.
According to the desires and the condition of each one, the afternoon will be more cultural with the choice: a small detour on the old silver lead mine, or the rise towards the splendid baroque chapel of Notre-Dame des Vernettes and its source with miraculous virtues!
