The Grand Tour of Mont Avic Wildlife Park

Four days and three nights in the midst of nature, giving an opportunity to see ibex, marmots and chamois in their natural environment, to walk along the paths of the faithful visiting the shrine of Miserin, to retrace the hunting routes created by King Vittorio Emanuele II, and to contemplate the flora in both the high altitudes and the wetlands typical to mountain environments. Lastly, at nightfall after an intense day living in close commune with nature, skirt an Alpine lake before finding shelter in the heart of the Alps.
