Tour of Vanoise National Park

This is the typical Hiking Tour of Vanoise National Park. We are hiking in the “cor du Parc”(Heart of the
DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
Park), in one of the most famous and iconic parks in Europe. The Vanoise National Park, located in the French Alps! , but just 2 hours away from Turin, it is the “Twin Park” of the Gran Paradiso National Park, in the Italian side. The mountains here are quite different though. How? Difficult to describe. Every mountain valley has its own vegetation, wildlife, geological peculiarity. The French Alps at this latitude are more “white” in terms of rocks and less foresty. The valleys are wider and the rock walls less dramatic, with the exception of the Ecrins Massif.

Tour of Vanoise: big tour of the most beautiful NP in France

This hike is quite specific compared with the other hikes offered here on Trekking Alps website. In fact, after the first day where we will hike up 1000 meters, the hike does not have any more big elevation gain of 1000 meters. Said so, the hiking stages are longer than any other hike of the Trekking Alps hikes proposed and a couple of day hikes are quite tough. Said so, the days are long in summer and we can take it easy making the full day of the hike, even the longest day(the fourth) is doable. In fact, once we reach the high altitude on the first day, we will not go much down. The whole hike develops between 2200 and 2800 meters before being back down in the civilization. The full Tour of Vanoise Hike is quite long and it develops in high meadows. This Tour of Vanoise is quite “fixed” but there are a few changes we can do to organize the hike according to your need. The hike is doable in summer only and because the huts are quite popular it is really important to book in advance to reserve our places.
