Back hike

La Turra

Vulture - CCHMV APN

Enjoy a sunny balcony facing prestigious peaks. Overhanging views invite contemplation, thanks to comfortable lift access.


Welcome to a sample of the Tour des Glaciers de la Vanoise! As soon as you set off on this GRP®, you'll find yourself gazing endlessly over the endless ridges to the Pointe de Bellecôte at Mont froid. And if the weather's spoiling you, you might even recognize the Meije, the Aiguilles d'Arves and the Écrins rising majestically on the horizon. Enough dreaming! The bleating of the herds echoes throughout the mountain pasture. And when you reach La Turra, who knows what you'll discover in the sky? The cliffs, so popular with aerial sports enthusiasts, are home to a very special updraft of warm air. An exceptional "thermal" that delights vultures and lammergeiers in all seasons. And if you're lucky enough to be guided by a mountain professional, take advantage of the magic of the place to admire the view of theAussois rake from the unusual rocky arch of the trou de la lune.
