Vanoise

Description

Vanoise

The Vanoise is a beloved Alpine region in France, south of the Mont Blanc massif. The area has an abundant nature, and counts many glaciers. Parts of the area are destroyed by popular mega ski resorts like Les Arcs. We will be confronted with the destruction when walking the GR55 - E2 - GR5. On the Italian side lies Gran Paradiso, maybe even more beautiful.
