Vittorio Emanuele II hut

Summer path

Upstream of the Pont-Valsavarenche village, left the car in the large parking lot of the Hotel Gran Paradiso, pass the bridge over Savara on the left and walk on a wide part of the plain in Seyraz Valley, up to the Tétras Lyre hut. The trail, well marked and very popular, then climbs in the larch forest until you reach a dominant rocky balcony, from which one can notice the whole Amphitheater of the abovementioned valley. Keep going along the path and you'll reach the Vittorio Emanuele II hut, nearby a small lake and an old building, once place for a hut and today hosting winter and surveillance locations.

Path accessible with dogs, from Pont-Valsavarenche to the Vittorio Emanuele II hut, from the 15th of July to the 31st of August.
