About this product
- DescriptionThe Tour of the Vaise circuit of the national park is a fantastic hut-to-hut journey through the heart of one of France's finest mountain regions. Describing the trek in a counter-clockwise direction, beginning and ending at Modane in the valley of the Arc, this guidebook contains all the information trekkers will need on a day-by-day basis. As the 150km route takes between 10 and 12 days to walk, it fits comfortably within a fortnight's holiday, and numerous strategically placed huts enable trekkers to travel light and stay in simple comfort at the end of each stage. Easily accessible by train or bus from Chambery and Greble, the Vaise National Park neighbours that of the Gran Paradiso in Italy, with Mont Blanc to the rth and the Ecrins to the south. The Tour of the Vaise explores the very best of this scenically spectacular region of 3000m peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls and flowering meadows, and provides plenty of opportunities to study marmots, chamois and ibex along the way.
