A classic Tour de France route (17 passes), the Col de la Croix de Fer links the Arvan valley to the Oisans valley and also to the Villards valley in Maurienne, via the Col du Glandon, which is 2.5 km away.
Located at an altitude of 2060 meters. It is the starting point for many hikes. It is also very pleasant to start from Saint Sorlin d'Arves (1600 metres above sea level) and to reach the pass (2060m) via marked paths.
Simple walk for the whole family (less than two hours), little difference in altitude and a magnificent natural setting! About 5 kilometres separate the restaurant "Le Gros caillou" from the "two bridges" via the superb "Prés Plan chapel".
This beautiful little chapel dedicated to Notre-Dame-de-la-Vie was built in 1671 and restored in 1855. Outside the windows are decorated with fleurs-de-lis, heads of characters and Savoy crosses. It is possible to visit it on Sundays, ask the Tourist Office for information.
This hike is a 5.2 kilometre loop with a 365 metre drop that overlooks the village. It takes about 2h30 but the landscape is grandiose! We often see wild animals (especially early in the morning), the view of the aiguilles d'Arves is superb and you will pass by old alpine chalets which have a lot of charm!
For the departure, park in the parking lot of the residence "La porte des saison" (at the top of the village of St Sorlin) and the path will start its ascent on your right.
