at La Norma

  • This loop itinerary explores the entire vicinity of La Norma, passing through Modane, Le Bourget, Avrieux and Villarodin. You'll see ancient streets, Baroque churches, a brewery, a glassblowing factory and a washhouse.

    You'll begin on a picturesque downhill path to the edge of Modane before following the River Arc as far as Arviex. Once past the village of Villarodin, a steeper uphill path then takes you to a mountainside forest track which leads back to La Norma. This pleasant itinerary presents no major difficulty and is ideal to start on before taking to the more challenging trails. You'll cross two villages of Haute Maurienne Vanoise and admire their Baroque churches and typical ancient streets.
