From the Vanoise Express, board one of the largest cable cars in the world and tame the void. In the cabin, the most courageous among you will try the "Vertigo" experience, a glass plate on the ground which offers an incredible view of the villages of the Ponturin valley at 380 m above the ground! On arrival at Montchavin-Les Coches, you will enjoy the coolness of the forest on the north side. Very quickly, you will be challenged by the sound of the Nant Bénin, a wild torrent that rises from several streams under the Col de Frêt at an altitude of 2,450 m. Take the opportunity to soak your feet! Further on, you will discover the Alpage des Esserts with its pretty stone chalets. You may even be greeted by the sound of the tarine bells! Before starting the descent, stop for a moment to admire the panoramic view of Peisey-Vallandry and Nancroix. You will appreciate the return via the pastoral road which is gentle and calm.
