A walk along the rocky alpine pastures, facing the majestic glacial cirques of the Arc springs.
“Come here to walk in October, when the wind ripples through the yellow grasses, and where there are only steppes, peaks and glaciers as far as the eye can see. And no reminders of the hustle and bustle in the valley below... Ÿou will feel so small amidst the spectacular Great Alps!” Jérémie Jourdan, Vanoise National Park ranger.
