A protected natural site 10,000 years old, unique in the Alps! Discover this ecosystem at the Maison des Tourbières or through thematic trails in open visits, guided tours, animations, workshops, games and conferences ...
Located between 1550 and 1718 m altitude, this peat bog of 290 hectares is a relic of the last ice age. The largest peat bog in the Alps, it has a rare flora and fauna, and its ranking as a Regional Nature Reserve in 2013 helps protect all this fragile biodiversity. During periods outside snow, you can walk in the heart of this peat bog, on two specially designed trails allowing you to discover this special biotope. This peat bog has its origin in the passage on the neck of a glacial tongue. This is a very rare site in France since this type of peat bog is generally found in the Scandinavian mountains. A botanical wealth out of the ordinary, since there are extremely rare or even unique plants in Savoie, as well as carnivorous plants.
