18 - Cross-country - Blue - Vallée d'Avérole

at Bessans

  • How amazing, to find yourself in such high mountains with such little effort, enjoying a beautiful view of the suspended Charbonnel glacier.

    The Avérole valley is home to a few of the Haute Maurienne's typical farming villages that are still intact (La Goulaz, Vincendières and Avérole). This itinerary presents no major difficulty as it climbs gently to the end of the valley. You can even extend your trip up to the Averole refuge which is open and guarded during the summer. Seasoned mountain bikers can make the extra climb in the saddle, while others may have to walk. The decor promises waterfalls, glaciers and high peaks.
