The rugged Tarentaise Valley sits in the heart of the French Alps and is world-famous for its ski resorts. We’ll begin our frosty adventure from Sainte Foy Bonconseil, home to the Ste Foy ski resort. We will head towards the picturesque hamlet of Monal and discover its charm. The protected historical site offers beautiful views of the mountains that hang above the hamlet plush with thick forest. We’ll head into the wooded area and trek among the alpine trees. And we’ll keep a watchful eye out for animal tracks that wander among the forest. We’ll immerse ourselves in the closed wilderness before the trees become sparse and again exposed to the open elements. Around noon we’ll take a breather and set up a lovely picnic in a spot that I know you’ll find impressive. Here we’ll regain our energy while being surrounded by the serene French wilderness. This discovery adventure is perfect for families because it presents no major technical difficulty. Although because you’ll be out all day, you should be able to trek from morning until afternoon. And you’ll be in very safe hands. I'm a certified UIMLA mountain leader and have experience taking families on thrilling adventures across the Tarentaise Valley. I love being able to help parents and their kids achieve their conquests of the mountains! If there are 3 or more of you then contact me to hear about an interesting discount.
