Nant du Beurre Refuge

This refuge is staffed and serves refreshments, so treat yourself to a break on arrival! The stunning view from outside takes in La Lauzière, Le Cheval Noir and the Vanoise peaks with, in the background, La Meige and Les Ecrins mountain range. Marmots are commonly sighted around here and, if you're lucky, you might even spot a Golden Eagle!

Description

A few hundred meters after leaving the Nant du Beurre refuge, a small clear mountain lake emerges at the foot of the Dzonfié (2 455 m), highest peak of the Nâves Valley.

From there on, follow a balcony path brimming with Ericaceae flowers (rhododendrons, blueberries…) which offers a great variety of colours. Then go downhill towards the Beauregard Chalet (1 969 m), and take the Grand Tour de Tarentaise path followed by the Tour de Beaufortain variant to loop back up with the Nant du Beurre refuge.
