Top 3 Trailheads For Great Hikes in Pays d’Albertville

Tamié Valley

This beautiful, verdant hanging valley, located at 900 meters elevation, includes several of the area’s must-see sites (and sights!). Within the Bauges Mountains Natural Regional Park, the valley’s well-preserved mountain environment offers several fantastic hikes.

Enjoy rambles of all levels through the mountains, from leisurely hikes for families, like the Tamié Valley Loop, to more adventurous endeavors like scrambling to the summit of Belle Etoile Peak. The surrounding summits let you choose between an easy stroll or a more dizzyingly vertical challenge.

Alpage de la Thuile

Located at 1800 meters elevation, this alpine pasture offers a genuine slice of heaven right beneath spectacular Mt. Charvin.

An easy drive just 45 minutes from Albertville, Alpage de la Thuile (La Thuile Alpine Pasture), offers incredible views in every direction. Opt for a short two-hour walk around the hut to enjoy the area’s mountain lakes. More experienced hikers will enjoy steeper ascents starting from the same trailhead. To each their own hike!

Arpettaz Hut

The alpine pasture located right beneath Mt. Charvin provides unobstructed views of the Mt. Blanc Range and the steep, precipitous terrain of the Arly River Gorge. For those who love mountain adventures and have a penchant for a little risk, enjoy a vertical adventure climbing the steep and sometimes vertigo-inducing Golet de la Trouye via ferrata. For a more leisurely endeavor through the countryside, the Route de la Soif (Thirst Road) trail offers a great option for families.
