Things to see and do

Pralognan-la-Vanoise is a real village with a history, old neighborhoods and traditions. Not to be missed, the classified villages of the Croix, Fontanettes or Prioux but also cheese dairies of alpine pastures, traditional festivals throughout the summer.

A guide lecturer will make you discover the secrets of the village, the inevitable, and will introduce you to a tasting of local products...

Do not forget to visit the Croix, hamlet of Pralognan. There is an old village where, a few years ago, the cows were on the ground floor and the inhabitants on the floor. Talk to the elders, they are loquacious about the customs, the anecdotes of yesteryear. The genépi and the gentian blossom well in their chalets. It is pleasant to walk in the steep alleyways where float calm and authenticity.
