November 2023 - Due to a large landslide that fell in Sarral, Rhemes-Saint-Georges can no longer be reached. From Introd, take the deviation just before Cossard, following the signs on the territory. The route reaches Soressamont and continues towards Villeneuve. 


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’ll climb following an old path that gradually ventures into dense forests suspended over the turbulent Dora di Rhêmes, until you get to aptly-named Rhêmes-Saint-Georges. Here the houses run along a slope overlooked by the towering parish church.

Once you have passed the river, you’ll get to the tiny hamlet of Cachoz and begin your descent, once again immersed in the forests. Encircling the promontory of Mont Ruppet, you’ll take the valley ravine of the Savara River until you get to the village of Chevrère, from where you will begin to descend to reach the valley floor at Villeneuve.
