Spend an unforgettable night in a mountain refuge in the midst of the high mountains of the Vanoise. Watch the sunset over the snow-covered mountains turning the summits pink high above. See the stars spread across the inky black sky. Listen to the silence of the mountains far from the madding crowd. Memories to savour!
I will come and meet you at your chalet or hotel. We will then drive to the village of Pralognan-la-Vanoise gateway to the Vanoise National Park. Pralognan is literally at the end of the road.
Our snowshoe walk takes us up the Doron de Chaviere valley with mountains towering above us.
As we walk there’s a real possibility of seeing some of the wildlife. You may get to see chamois or even a golden eagle soaring against an azur sky. Spot the tracks of mountain hare or even a ptarmigan.
The Refuge Roc de la Peche
Our home for the night will be the very comfortable refuge Roc de la Peche at an altitude of 1911m. The refuge is built on a rocky out crop with breathtaking views of the mountains of the Vanoise. The refuge even boasts a sauna and jacuzzi!
The refuge has a choice of rooms including cosy double-bedded rooms for those wanting more privacy. Other rooms have either 4 or 6 beds although you will still have an en-suite shower-room.
Dinner is a set menu. However if you prefer it is possible to choose a Savoyard speciality like a raclette, cheese fondue or a warming tartiflette (if notified in advance).
