2 jours sur l'alpage de Grenairon avec nuit en refuge

© refuge grenairon - ot sixt-Christian Martelet

A short sportive itinerary that will take you to the Grenairon refuge, formerly called the Buet chalet hotel. Nestled at an altitude of 1974 meters, it offers a magnificent view of the Fiz chain and the Anterne valley.

Description

This beautiful and rather physical itinerary leads you to the Refuge de Grenairon.

On the foothills of the Mont Buet, this place is a great reward and will compensate your efforts on the way up with its magnificent panorama and its generous restaurant based on local products.

From the hamlet of Salvagny, you will walk in the footsteps of the first mountaineers. Indeed, the refuge of Grenairon constitutes an important stage for the ascent of the mount Buet (3100m), the highest summit of Haute-Savoie if we except the Mont Blanc.

It is moreover following its ascent by Jane and Mary Parminter in 1786 that the mount Buet was nicknamed the "Mont Blanc des Dames".

The itinerary takes you over the Cirque des Fonts, allowing you to observe the path of the Giffre des Fonts since its source.

You will also have the opportunity to discover the mountain pasture of Grenairon. Let yourself be tempted by the delicious goat cheese produced on the spot.
