Overlookink a small mountain lake, this refuge of the Vanoise national park, on the GR5 and the Tour de la Vallaisonnay, proposes a great site seeing on the 3 highest peaks of Savoie.

- In winter: enjoy a unique experience for off-piste skiers or snowshoeers.

Supervised by professionals, the refuge is a gourmet stopover along wild off-piste in the heart of the Vanoise National Park, a place for a warm evening by the fire but also the starting point for the Tarentaise Tour.
To fully enjoy your outing, adapted equipment is essential (cross-country skiing, sealskin and safety equipment: DVA, shovel, probe). We strongly recommend professional coaching.

- In summer:
Animations organized by the guardians: improvisation theatre, storytelling evenings, astronomy, folk. . .
During the guard period: catering service and possible access to a corner outside the bag.
Outside the guard period, the refuge is open in the autumn and provides: dormitory, blankets, heating and cooking facilities and crockery.
The refuge is managed in a sustainable way (gas refrigerator, neve water recovery, solar energy for electricity. . . ) and participates in raising public awareness in terms of sustainable development and nature protection.

You are curious to know more about the Parc de la Vanoise, its history, its richness and its secrets. Come and spend an evening with a guard from the Vanoise National Park. He will share with you his job and the exceptional setting that is part of his daily life.

But also: every night is game night: there is no age limit to be a player. Whether you are Uno, Jungle speed, Scrabble or Tarot.
