Discover the Fournache refuge, overlooking the Plan d'Amont and Plan d'Aval dams at the foot of the Dent Parrachée, at an altitude of 2340m on the edge of the Vanoise National Park and the GR5.

Description

It is above all your stage on the tour of the Vanoise glaciers.
The refuge was built in stone, wood and slate in the purest mountain tradition, in place of an old alpine chalet. The wooden interior offers a modern refuge, while maintaining an authentic character. It enjoys an exceptional panorama overlooking the lakes of Plan d'Amont and Plan d'Aval.
