If you love hiking in the high mountains, this is your tour! Each glorious day is spent wandering among the waterfalls, glaciers, peaks and valleys. This is the largest bouquetin/ibex preserve in the world, with rich viewing opportunities of chamois, eagles, golden bearded vultures and marmots.
Our tour ventures around the large protected glaciated mass of La Vanoise, often venturing up scenic valleys and high lookouts along the way.
Lodging is in mountain huts ranging from 2-4 per room. Bathrooms are mostly in a common area with some private rooms/baths.
Breakfast and dinner is included. Lunches are at mountain refuges. Meals are authentic French.
Daily hikes vary. Some days may be up to 5 hours long venturing from hut to hut wearing a 20-30# pack. Other days we arrive at our destination in time for lunch and venture out for an optional afternoon hike with a light pack. This tour is appropriate for intermediate to advanced hikers with some mountain experience.
