Tour of the Aiguille de la Vanoise
73210 La Côte-d'Aime
Magnificent hike in the Vanoise National Park, for lovers of wide open spaces. You will walk along a stream, both up and down, in the footsteps of famous mountaineers, on the ancestral road of salt and cheese. Possible from July to October.
A real trip back in time, this tour full of history and grandiose landscapes will offer you an incredible high mountain setting: the panorama on the Grande Casse and the Vanoise glaciers will blow your mind! You will have the impression to walk on water when you will cross the lake of the cows. Let yourself be seduced by the succession of glaciers, lakes and waterfalls and admire the colorful flowers at the foot of the dizzy walls...
Ibexes and chamois are nearby; marmots are not shy. And if you are lucky, you may see the famous "bone-breaking" vulture: the bearded vulture. You will have the opportunity to observe these animals in their natural environment without disturbing them: binoculars and spotting scopes will be at your disposal to enjoy these magical moments!
