From the gates of the Vanoise National Park, this perfect beginners’ route takes you through the unspoilt valley of Champagny le Haut, revealing its rich heritage and culture.

Departure from the Couaz dam. The route starts on a wide trail that runs along the Doron mountain stream – first on the left bank and then on the right. After several kilometres, the path branches off to the left and takes you past alpine meadows to the hamlet of Le Bois. After following the paved road to the opposite side of the village, you take the dirt track that passes close to the Camping du Canada site and brings you out not far from the hamlet of La Chizerette. After crossing the bridge and turning right, you return to the departure point via the outgoing route.
