At the weekend thousands came from 20.7 the French did a 5 days venoaz, and was amazing, here's a description of the tour:

Venoaz Park (Parc National de la Vanoise)

Venoaz Park is the oldest national park in France (was founded in שנת1963 in order to preserve the alpnity-goat populations Bouquetin) is South of Chamonix bordering the Park. Gran Paradiso In Italy, the two parks together comprise the largest nature reserve in Western Europe, the park covers 530 thousand hectares, it has a 3000 m peaks above 107 (3856 m high La Grande Casse), it has about 500 kilometers of hiking trails and 60.

The two routes cross over the long GR5 וה GR55 And peripheral route around the Park at 10-12 days and described in his book of Kev Reynolds (by friendly) Tour of the Vanoise In the book describes several shorter tracks went off the track. Tour des Glacieres de la Vanoise-5 days.

Tour des Glacieres de la Vanoise

This is a course of five days the Western ridge of the Park the largest glaciers in the Park, the trail is a circular route that starts and finishes in the village of prlonein (Pralognan), 60 km in length and the highest PPG is Col d ' Aussois (2916 m), we went against Greece clockwise (as recommended in the guide of friendly), I think you should consider going in the opposite direction-especially because of the views of the fourth day-explanation below.

Route map from my GPS sample:

The graph height according to my GPS sample:

Navigation, and difficulty level

The trails in the Park are maintained and clear, clear signage and although many markings (usually marked trails brog) fear of losing your way along the little trip we used map for navigation (no recommendation not to go with a map, of course).

Level of difficulty of the route I did, except for a 1000 m on the second day and decrease of 1000 m on the last day there is a killer track "ups and downs", the track mostly ranges from 2100 m to 2500 m, the option to do the course without accommodation lets you travel with a low weight.

Getting there & away

International Airport, which has flights from Israel is Geneva (bumbry's airports and gronbl closer, but as far as I know, no summer flights to Israel) which you can find cheap flights with easy Jet (should note well the fine print, it's not always profitable). Landing point is close.

Easy-to-access points include the villages, towns and ski resorts (prloneinPralognan), oden (Modane), terminion (Termignon) Race in Bessans , Bonneval ו Val d ' Isere .

The start and end points of the route is the prlonein village in the western part of the Park Road to the village of long public transportation (took us 8.5-9 hours total, 3 hours of standby, 3 trains and buses), the village is: Geneva Airport ? Geneva railway station ? As bumbry (Chambery)? Albertville () Albertville by theme are: ? From city centre (Moutiers)? Prlonein.

The trip from the airport to the city is for free (tickets should be printed on machines in the gym, get on the drive to the airport have to pay ...). In c you can buy up to moteia, where you can buy an extra ticket to prlonein, payment directly to the coach driver. On the whole trip is € 45.

We had an hour's gifts are shmberi and moteia them saved shopping for track (we bought in shmberi but moteia has great and close to the train station, and I think it's a good idea to buy food).

Timetables can be found both on the French railways and the Swiss railways website, I found the site a great many Swiss:

France Railroad: SNCF

Switzerland train: SBB

Prlonein buses: Trans Savoie

Accommodation and food

Basically in the Park you can sleep in a tent near some huts only, at a cost of 5 euros per person, we chose to take a tent, but in retrospect it was marginal savings and in my opinion not worth the extra weight.

All cabins have a kitchen cooking travelers, used sometimes for free and sometimes for a euro per person. Accommodation cost alone is around € 15 per person, dinner is about 15 euros and breakfast cost (value) כ9 10. I mean whoever chooses to sleep in cabins but Cook himself in the kitchen would save 10 euros per night, seeing you last night have no choice but to do the cabin (2 possible kidney huts that don't permit camping Leiden) this is a saving of 30 euro.

I.e.-the cost of 30 euros can save the weight of sleep equipment (cooking equipment anyway, because when you're asleep in the tent and you can use the cabin's kitchen) and I think it's worth it!

Prlonein not much in his own budget, we slept in Epicea Lodge Inside the campsite Isertan ב82 euros for a room with 2 beds (half-board € 67. cost per person), at the end of the route there is camping. Camping municipal de la Chamois Euro בכ7 per person.

The last night before we preferred to stop and sleep in shmberi (90 minutes by train from Geneva Airport), where cheap accommodation is high and significant you can find double 60 Euro.

Of course you can have meals at the huts at a cost of € 15 for dinner (Starter-4 soup and bread, meat main dish + plus, sometimes local cheese platter and dessert) € וכ9 breakfast (bread with butter and jam and hot drinks). The author has prlonein and the way towns and cities (bumbry, Albertville and city) but the route goes to other villages and carry food any day. In some way you can purchase farms cheese-production is highly recommended!

Locate the Center all the huts in the Park:

Refuges de la Vanoise

And company

And it's very accessible routes, trails and cabins not packed but definitely hard to get a sense of "alone with nature, you will not be there, and although most are French travellers there from all over Europe met. On weekends it's advisable to book in advance – just in case, mid-week and load one of the cabins we found ourselves sleeping in a room of about 20 seats.

Information

To have friendly book describing the circuit (Tour of the Vanoise) also describes several other tracks, including the route we did. Tour des Galcieres de la Vanoise.

There is also a book about the route GR5 The French Alps and runs in the Park.

Ennio school necessary for track, but who nevertheless decides to purchase recommended and you should buy the book directly rather than supply in the country, comes in 10 days and cost + shipping from England tens of shekels from low cost (and also guaranteed the newest edition of the book).

This map covers the trail map at IGN Which costs 10 euros:

Carte 50-Randonnes A3-Vanoise

You can also find maps at scale 1:25. The maps can be found in every village in the region (including prlonein).

More information can be found on sites:

Pralognan de la Vanoise

Parc Nacional de la Vanoise

And weather

Recommended season as in the Alps is mid-June to mid-September and the period during which most cabins open, however some of has winter cabins open year-round.

Early in the summer (mid-July) have chances of snow's inventions in high points and northern slopes, in the first two weeks of July, the peak flowering, from mid-July to mid-August and the routes are likely to be busy because of the French summer break in September the weather reporting but getting less green.

I think early July. excited about crossing snow sections is the recommended period.

The weather even in summer can be fickle and you should always follow the weather forecast every morning all that famous.

Equipment

In this section I have much to add to the existing information here except the Forum Besides encouraging more about using sticks and avoid carrying weights.

*The background based on the friendly manual

A description of the track.

* All times are provisional NET walk without stopping

Day 1-prlonein to Roc de la Peche Refuge

On this day we chose a different route than that recommended in the guide of friendly because of the weather conditions, I recommend this for anyone who needs to "adapt" to the backpack and walking, anyone interested in challenges, course climbs on this day from the village to Refuge de la Vallete That is about 1000 m.

The first day started late after we realized we need to change the original plan we booked a place in Roc de la Peche Rain gear, we went through the trajectory begins with a walk in the Woods along shmabero Creek Road to the other vehicle.

Exit: prlonein

Very quickly the Valley gets exposed and are beginning to see some landscapes and a rash after 2 hours we walk Les Prioux Farmhouse converted to the place looks nice and you can grab lunch, also connects the road with a dirt road.

Les Prioux :

After about 20 min the second half comes to Pont de la Peche -This is the end of the road vehicle and small parking lot here begins the short to Roc de la Peche After two to three and a half hours to arrive at the net, it is not possible to establish where the tent accommodations enough more expensive 60 Euro for half board, we slept in the winter and cooking ourselves for 26 euros per person (separate beds bedroom rather than the typical sleeper cabins).

The view from Roc de la Peche:

Day 2-Roc de la Peche l. Refuge de Plan Sec

This day is the day the hard route, during which climbers as 1000 m to Col d ' Aussois The highest point on the track, but it can be harvested on the next day that during passing 3 chalets, all towards the end of the day (getting one requires climbing easy).

Today starts 20 minutes of relaxed walking up the Valley where we went yesterday, just before the start of a typhus Ritort -Guest visit it you can buy a miitert cheese instead.

The Dairy Queen on Ritort :

The cheese you find for sale on Ritort :

ל Col d ' Aussois (2916 m) comes after two and a half to four hours, not an easy climb, crossing several snowy sections:

The pass itself was windy and cold, so it was quite difficult descent in particular and taking it carefully. apas already can see Lake Plan d ' Amont On top of spending the night below:

After about an hour and a half of Refuge du Fond d ' Aussois You can spend the night but I think it's a good idea to move forward an hour and a half to Refuge de Plan Sec And save time that day.

ב Plan Sec A tent (5 euro per person), cooking for ourselves in the kitchen, people of the cabin the cabin and nhamdi people, the cabin is close to the train station and accessible.

Frozen breakfast in Plan Sec :

Day 3-fromPlan Sec to Refuge de l ' Arpont

On this day, the trail begins to climb back northward, the altitude changes on this day are slim, and impressive views of the Italian border and the Arc The space during the day are starting to get into the Park and feel the full force of nature, after some five and a half to six hours a net Refuge de l ' Arpont Located in a stunning location high above a ravine, over to see the glaciers of venoaz and the pshrtam and flows approximately 400 m of is Lac de l ' Arpont , Which is the heat or the end of that day or early the next day.

Also on this day a tent near the cabin and cooking in the kitchen.

Day 4- L ' Arpont ל Refuge d ' Entre Deux Eaux. (OrRefuge col de la Vanoise)

The day started with l. Lac de l ' Arpont The most impressive (2 hours round trip!):

After we got back to the cabin and loaded the shells went to the most impressive day trip, about half an hour of walking we'd first:

The will for protection established Park were not cowards and closer to the few individuals:

During the day we met two other individual information (one of them):

The day continued with sweeping views of the glaciers and Valley of Doron below:

All these added the impressive flowering:

We decided to end the day down to Refuge d ' Entre Deux Eaux. Rather than continue to Refuge Col de la Vanoise As proposed in the Guide because our prototype to Lake cabin comes after some five and six hours.

This cannot be done with camping (two possible huts) and we decided to treat ourselves to a night half board. Nice cabin room and alone, is run by a few older women that we were told by one of the guests they manage the place for over 30 years. The cabin has access to public transport (station within fifteen mins walk) and also guests not arrived.

The views on this impressive, however the way they chose were walking behind, and therefore I think it is highly recommended to follow the entire route in the opposite direction!

Day 5- from -Entre Deux Eaux d ' to prlonein

Relatively short and it recommended I look short side trips in the area. Col de la Vanoise .

The day begins with l. Col de la Vanoise (2517 m) accessed after 2 hours in La Paz is net hut (you can move it up the night before or eat her lunch), an impressive area with views to Grande Casse The highest peak in Glacier Park's:

From here the track descends back to the prlonein, this decrease of 1000 m on the way and takes about 2 hours:

Photos arouse jealousy, looks amazing.

I understand that was welcome in your favor?

You say that the weight of the clouds? Considerably?

Thanks for the compliments.

The weight not the clouds, but there's no reason to get back on track with a tent, especially because you're limited to stay near the cabins.

The weather was good, the first two critics were a bit grey with light drizzle on Wednesday although the Sun was pretty strong wind that this stagnation to us much of the day.

What a beauty!!!
Excellent review and great pictures.
It helps especially for those looking for more than short trekking here usually (not always have time to trek ...) and even a little diversity. AV1/2 TMB. Already noticed this trek because of Kev Reynolds (I adore the guy. ).

To me, do you know if there is also a shuttle (shuttle)?

Anyway-thanks!

Join the compliments.
Great review and photos are amazing!

As whoever is currently shorter treks (as Amber story) this is definitely going into my todo list.

Some questions about the track.
* Write the difficulty level you think it. Whether because of the difference of heights specified days? Are there sections with a limitation of offences (many narrow paths, steep and exposed via ferrata)?
* About shlogieth whether you think risk is (are)?
* About your amlma to consider walking the course with Greece — do you have any idea what the book recommends? Is there an opposite direction segments become more difficult?

Thanks for the post

Thanks for the comprehensive post.

Possible to travel there in late September, early October? Or as problematic and rafiog.

So what is estimated in terms of price for six days on the trail.

Tom.

Thanks for the responses!

Jonathan.
* Difficulty arises mainly because of differing heights.
* Shlogieth where I encountered were not particularly steep, but still, I wouldn't go without them and have to cross them carefully, it's hard for me to predict how are at other times of the year.
* I think the book recommends that the direction the track had it with long path described in the book in more detail לכ3 days, so you can go to the detailed story.
When the reverse route begins in a 1000 m, but this relatively easy very good way (according to the number and density of the day, it's a very popular day trip for tourists in prlonein). The climb to the Col d ' other way Aussois shorter (600 m). I can't tell if the opposite direction the route easier, but that's the impression I got.

Tom.
The weather there is similar to the weather in the rest of the French Alps (TMB) and starts to be less stable in the second half of September, most of the huts are closed in the second half of September, so it's not an ideal time, but if I'm not mistaken most huts in winter room open all year round and if you travel in charge who happens to fall on a good week (possible) I believe we can make the track even in late September.
In my opinion this risk and should ensure good trails in good shape and good weather before.
In short, I wouldn't go out at this time.

Hey
The cabins have enough liner, the chalets offer ample Wool blankets
It is important to bring slippers/sandals, Crocs or shoe that permitted cabins with hiking shoes

4.
Leave in early July.

Plan to go with Greece and a walk a little longer (do not cross the Col d ' but around Aussois Pointe de l ' Echelle South, probably via Col de la Masse).

Booked a place in the bikatot for the first two nights at the Col de la Vanoise and in l ' Arpont (Arpont ' cabin renovated and moved it in small drop down and because I wanted to make sure alternative to have it).
I ordered the cabin place (falls on a weekend).

Hi me

Another question that might be of interest to anyone who goes this route.
Do you can buy cabins also packed lunch (picnic) so basically you can travel the whole route without having to carry food?

Thanks, Jonathan

Hi Jonathan
As far as I know, and picnic bags are standard cabins in France.
In this track we preferred to get us food most days, on the last day we saw picnic bag travellers taking picnic bags/sandwiches also on other days. By the way, I think a picnic bags aren't worth costs (כ9 € 10).
Some days you can eat in generally I think either option is preferable if you choose not to buy food for lunch.
