La Vanoise National Nature Park
With the Tarentaise valley and river Isère in the north, the Maurienne valley and Arc river in the south, and the Vanoise mountains with 107 peaks topping 3,000 metres, it’s enough to make you dizzy. But if you are curious by nature, a need to see more will take the upper hand.
Protective by nature
Created in 1963 to ensure the protection of threatened species, the Parc de la Vanoise is a nature reserve covering 53,000 hectares and stretching 14 km along the Italian border and the Grand Paradiso park on the other side. It shelters 1,200 protected species, around forty refuges and, so that you can get a closer look, no less than 500 km of hiking trails. As for your scale of emotions, unfortunately we don’t have a gauge powerful enough to measure that.
