The Tour of the Vanoise explores the very best of this scenically spectacular region of m peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls and flowering meadows, and provides plenty of opportunities to study marmots, chamois and ibex along the way. With numerous manned huts strategically placed throughout the National Park, lightly-laden trekkers can stay in simple comfort each night without having to resort to carrying tents, food or cooking equipment.
Covering a distance of more than km 95miles it encounters some dramatically wild landscapes, is demanding in places and, with several passes to tackle in excess of metres ft , ensures there's plenty of height gain and loss; the total amount of ascent being some metres 23,ft. Kev Reynolds describes the route, its alternatives and variations, gives details of the huts and other accommodation, and points out items of interest along the way. This circuit should appeal to all who love wild places, and for whom the Alps provide an antidote to everyday life at low level.
