Haute Maurienne Vanoise is famous for its numerous mountain refuges. As the arrival or departure point of hikes, the refuge keepers will make you live an unforgettable experience, by sharing their art of living in altitude. Places of meeting and exchange, these havens of peace in the middle of nature will leave you with images of marmots and other blueberry pies!
The refuges are all open in the summer (remember to reserve for the nights) but many refuges are also accessible all year round with "unguarded" rooms and bedrooms. You can nevertheless sleep there, cook for yourself, make a fire in a stove to warm up and... meet other ski tourers.
In winter and spring, guards are also present in some huts to welcome you as in summer. An experience to live at least once for the amateurs of ski touring and great virgin spaces.
