This guide offers readers all the inspiration they need for a multi-activity holiday in the Haute Maurienne (also known as the Vanoise and Dauphiné), in the French Alps. Contents cover day walks, mountaineering routes, via ferratas, rock climbs, mountain biking, road cycling and long-distance treks, and the guide seems ideal for the adventurous family on holiday.

Walking/biking routes range from short walks and cycle rides for the whole family to sustained or challenging mountain routes up to PD to reach the highest summits. Six crags are described with photo diagrams (the routes are nearly all in the sub 6a category, so ideal for youngsters), along with nine via ferratas.
