You’ve never heard of Haute Maurienne, that little corner of Savoy paradise in the Northern Alps?
This time it’s decided, we’re telling you everything! This area at the end of the valley has great assets and those who know it keep coming back and talking about it!
In Haute Maurienne Vanoise, there are no big resorts, no overcrowding, but authentic villages. Mountain villages with agriculture that is still very much alive and which turned to tourism as early as the middle of the 20th century.
French and foreign mountaineers were already climbing our highest peaks : L’Albaron, Le Charbonnel, La Ciamarella, La Grande Casse, La Dent Parrachée, the Vanoise glaciers.
The creation of the Vanoise National Park in 1963 brought a certain notoriety to the valley and made it possible to discover a wild and protected nature.
There are two road “exits” to the valley: the Mont-Cenis pass which gives you access to Italy and the Iseran pass, the highest road pass in Europe, which links us to Val d’Isère and the Tarentaise valley.
Please note that these passes are not accessible in winter! In general, the Mont-Cenis pass is open from May to October and the Iseran pass from June to September. To avoid unpleasant surprises, check the openings on Savoie-route.fr
