A grandiose natural site, the Rosuel valley reveals its secrets. Between intimate forests and peaks of over 3,000 m in altitude, discover the mysteries of this multi-faceted setting, at the gateway to the first of France's 11 national parks.
Your playful adventure begins in a sublime natural plateau nestled at an altitude of 1,556 metres. This is where France's oldest national park is located, in a building with a green roof and a unique rounded shape, which blends in perfectly with the landscape. After a small wood filled with larches, you will begin your sensory journey in the heart of a forest of alders, rowan trees, currants and ferns. Observe, smell, touch, listen... but please don't taste! Then join the Rosuel landscape reading trail and follow the educational panels that will lead you to a better understanding of the mountain environment. On the programme: a discovery of the mountain fauna and flora, as well as glaciers, which will transport you through the ages.
Finally, don't forget to look up! All around you, the Sétives and Nant Putors waterfalls offer an impressive spectacle.

- If by car, park at the Rosuel car park (free).
- Start of the trail 250 m after the gate of the Vanoise National Park, on the road to the Plagne lake, on the right.
