From flower to flower, a mountain of love

Getting off the beaten track is the aim of this excursion that will take you to the wetlands of Mont Avic where you can find different species of Alpine plants in flower in the pastures surrounding a succession of small lakes. In a poetic and timeless context, you’re likely to come across a marmot or see a chamois running, and watch in awe as a hawk and eagle circle over your heads watching you with interest.
