Refuge de la Femma

Located in the flowery valley of La Rocheure, this refuge in the Vanoise National Park is a paradise for marmots and cows. Easy to access in summer, it is the starting point for ski tours in spring. Dogs are prohibited (heart of the Park).
During the guarding period: possible access to a picnic area.
Outside the guarding period, the refuge is open and provides dormitory, blankets, means of heating, cooking and dishes.
It is managed in a sustainable way (dry toilets, rainwater harvesting, etc.) and contributes to raising public awareness in terms of sustainable development and nature protection.
