Valley of Orgère

The Orgère valley is closed off to the north by the Aiguille Doran and the Râteau d'Aussois, close to this "place where barley is grown" (hence the word "Orgère").
The gateway to the Vanoise National Park on the GR5, the site is the starting point for numerous hikes.


It's not unusual to spot ibex on the slopes of the Aiguille Doran, and marmots along the ruisseau du Povaret. You'll walk (depending on the season) through a huge carpet of flowers, each more exceptional than the last.
There's a walk for everyone, whether you're a family with baby carriages, want to explore the valley with a guide, or are more athletically inclined and want to cross the mountain passes.
For more information, visit the Tourist Office at La Norma or the mountain huts.
