The Park of La Vanoise is the oldest national park in France: it was created in memory of the extinction of the “ibexes”. The mountain range of La Vanoise is located in Savoie, between the le col of “La Croix du Bonhomme” and Modane, in the heart of La Maurienne. The region is a source of wonder to all who visit.
While walking, you will no doubt see marmots, ibexes and chamois. Three are over 2.000 ibexes and 5.000 chamois in the park. But you will also discover smaller mammals such as stoats, and of course the notorious marmots whose piercing cries will catch your attention. Vanoise is an ideal arena for predators such as the eagle. In addition you will discover a wide ranging flora: edelweiss, blue thistle, sabot de Vénus (the largest orchid in Europe) and many other species.
