A preserved area

First French National Park
The Vanoise National Park is a “genuine green diamond” nestled right at the heart of the Savoie. Created in 1963, it was the first French national park and covers a vast landscape where everything is protected: fauna, flora and rock. It really is an area of infinite discovery and wonder !
This giant nature reserve on the edge of Val d’Isère is yours to explore, with wild flowers and animals in their natural habitat. Hopefully you’ll come across marmots and mountain goats, along with herds of chamois and eagles in full flight. It’s a truly wonderful place for hiking. Take a guide for a day or half-day, or spend a night in hut an hour’s hike from the village.
Ouillette lake, a trout-fishing paradise, is a magical place located at 2,600m on the Solaise mountain with an unrestricted view of the Bellevarde mountain. Easily accessible on foot, it’s the perfect spot for an outdoor picnic with the family.
