Between Bessans and Bonneval sur Arc some waterfalls can even reach several hundred meters high.

Ice until March

The Last Ice Encounters

The particular conditions of Bonneval sur Arc and the Haute Maurienne Vanoise, with glaciers that dominate the valley and sheltered walls, even allow the valley to host each year in March the " Rencontres de la dernière glace", an event that brings together hundreds of climbers who come to enjoy the last icefalls still formed in France at that season
