Explore on skis the many virgin and wild ritineraries of the Haute-Tarentaise valley preserved by the Vanoise National Park.

A star safari allows you to choose a new destination every day depending on the ski conditions and this is the best option to be in the right place at the right time. Discover the Haute Tarentaise valley in the most beautiful way by skiing descents of 1500 to 2200 meters vertical on the wild and preserved slopes of the largest ski resorts in the world.

For this ski safari, we will stay at the hotel l’Alpin in Landry. It is ideally located about 15 minutes from 4 of the ski resorts of this circuit. Those who wish to regain warmth and conviviality after a day full of powder will not be disappointed…

A night at the Lac du Lou mountain hut at 2035 meters high, located in front of the resort of Les Ménuires and just below Val-Thorens, will bring a touch of authenticity to this tour. In a valley unspoiled, on the shore of a mountain lake and enjoying a magical view, it is a warm and comfortable refuge completely renovated in 2017.
