Non signed itinerary

Enter the magical world of Mont Cenis. Its lake of many colours, ranging from turquoise to emerald, will plunge you into an aquatic world surrounded by mineral peaks which are often sprinkled with white. These riches are well guarded by an army of 4-legged sentinels (the marmots) who will allow you to enjoy their treasure as long as you don't disturb them.
But the site hasn't always been this peaceful. Fortunately only a few vestiges, which you can discover along the way, still remain of this former stage of dispute.
But that won't stop your eyes from sparkling with happiness!
