The awakening of the marmots

Excursions & guided tours Free

Enjoy an unforgettable experience while discovering marmots in their natural surroundings during a walk of about five kilometres in Siviez.

Event has ended

Where are they hiding? How do they live? Enjoy a guided walk around Tortin to visit the marmots in their natural habitat and learn all about them.

These emblematic little Alpine rodents are sometimes well hidden in their underground burrows, but in Tortin they can sometimes be spotted. It is definitely easy to hear them thanks to their high-pitched whistling.

The walk is accessible to all (about 5 kilometers and a variation in altitude of 320 metres) and is therefore an ideal family outing. It lasts about an hour. Dogs are not allowed.
