Plan d'Amont Dam's Tour

in Aussois

  • The colour of the Plan d'Amont dam lake, sometimes blue, sometimes green, is a delight to the eyes. The balcony path around it crosses mountain pastures and streams and offers a magnificent view of the high peaks of the Vanoise National Park.

  • From the Maison d’Aussois, follow the Route des Barrages (dam road) and leave your car at the Carrière (quarry) car park. Continue on the “Pont de la Sétéria” trail as described in no. 25. After the bridge, follow the "PNV" signs towards the Fournache refuge. At the bottom of the Fournache valley, continue on the earth track high above the dam and go back down to the quarry car park.
