This is a route that extends through forests and rivers, surrounded by authentic, wild nature with paths that bring you into contact with the Rhêmes Valley and the nearby Valsavarenche, at the gates of the Gran Paradiso National Park.

Description of the route

From Introd you go up along an ancient trail that gradually enters the thick woods hanging over the turbulent Dora di Rhêmes until you reach Cossard, just before the town of Rhêmes-Saint-Georges.

From there, you turn round and in a few minutes, you reach the forestry service track which serves the Sorressamont hydroelectric basin. Following around on the edge of the promontory of Mont Puppet, you take the path through the valley of the Savara torrent until you get to the village of Chevrère from where you start your descent to the valley near Villeneuve.

Attention: Soon, along this route you will also be able to reach Rhêmes-Saint-Georges.
