Tour of the Vanoise


Tour of the VanoiseMaking a hut-to-hut journey through the heart of one of France's finest mountain regions, the 'Tour of the Vanoise' makes a perfect introduction to Alpine trekking. This work offers a circuit that explores the very best of the Vanoise National Park - a wonderland of 3000m peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls and meadows full of flowers - giving plenty of opportunities to study marmot, chamois and ibex along the way. As the 150km route takes 11-12 days to walk, it fits comfortably within a fortnight's holiday, and numerous strategically-placed huts enable trekkers to travel light and stay in simple comfort at the end of each stage.
