Trek - Tour of Vanoise Glaciers

The Vanoise National Park is the first French national park. It was created in 1963 largely because of the disappearance of the ibex. During this four-day trek, we suggest you go around the glaciers of the Vanoise. It is an immersion in the heart zone of the park which is wild and totally preserved. We will evolve from refuge to refuge on paths in balcony which will enable you to appreciate the magnificent landscapes. At the bend of a path, with a little luck, we find ourselves face to face with an ibex which will be an opportunity to make beautiful photographs.
