A three and a half day hike ending with a river rafting trip amid incomparable scenery dotted with lakes and karst formations.
Day 1: around 1:30 p.m. climb to the Vogealle refuge (1901m) and, after putting down the bags, climb up to the lake of the same name (2001m) then, at nightfall, go back down to the refuge where the guards will have prepared a meal copious. (positive elevation: 1050 - negative elevation: 100). Day 2: departure around 8:30 am towards La Vogealette via the pas de l'ours then the col des Chambres (2338m). This site, extraordinarily wild and chaotic will not leave you indifferent, especially if chamois and ptarmigan can be admired. A perched valley whose bottom is almost always snowy will lead us to Lac des Chambres (frozen lake 12 out of 12 months) From there, we will descend to the Folly refuge (1558m) (positive elevation: 430 - negative elevation: 780). Day 3: departure around 8:30 am towards the combe aux puaires, in the heart of a jagged lapiaz. Under the watchful eye of the chamois we will rise quietly about 700m before the slope steepens to the Pas du Taureau (approx 2500m) to descend to the Col de Bostan (2290m) from there we will descend to at the Bostan refuge (1763). Day 4: Quietly we will descend to the Allamands. There, a minibus picks us up to take us down to Samoëns. In the afternoon, a rafting descent will make you forget the fatigue of walking.
