The Vanoise National Park created in 1963 due to the disappearance of the ibex is the oldest national park in France. It offers a majestic space between the Maurienne and Tarentaise, guardian of fauna and flora carefully preserved.
It runs an incomparable variety of scenery with its 53 000 hectares and 500 km of trails.
The Vanoise National Park comprises two zones: the central zone and peripheral zone. The central area called "Coeur de parc" has a special attention as the protection zone. It is subject to specific rules. The peripheral zone covers 28 communes. It has a common border with the Italian National Park of Gran Paradiso. Twinned since 1972, they collectively cover an area of 1250 km2, the largest protected area in Europe.
