Vanoise National Park (Parc National de la Vanoise)
Located in the Savoie department, bordering Italy, the Vanoise is an immense region incorporating some of the most popular winter resorts. Its marked long-distance footpaths stretch over 500km and even include a part of the famous Grande Traversée des Alpes. Among many other species, the rare golden eagle and bearded vulture make it a popular destination for bird-watchers. Moreover, the reappearance of the elusive Eurasian Lynx pays testament to the reputation of the spectacular area as a standard bearer for conservation efforts the world over.
