Refuge de Bostan (unmarked route)

74340 Samoëns


From 22/12 to 15/04.


Free access.


Located at an altitude of 1763 m above the commune of Samoens, the Bostan refuge is a place of welcome for all hikers.

Follow the wide path at the bottom of the parking area. It climbs steadily into the pretty Bostan forest, which you leave shortly before arriving at the Bostan mountain chalets.

The view opens up onto the splendid Bostan valley, dotted with boulders and lapiaz, bordered on the right by the Dents D'Oddaz.

The path continues through the alpine pastures and soon reaches the refuge, a solid building on the edge of the pastures and lapiaz.
