A 10 000 years old site unique in the Alps. Located between 1550 and 1718 meters high this huge peat bog is an heritage of the ice period.
It is part of Natura 2000 rated and protected area for its natural fauna & flora. Picking is totally forbidden in that place. When there is no snow you can walk in the peat bog on a special trail equipped with information signs. This zone takes place in Les Saisies path when there was glacier over here. It is a very rare site in france. Usually we can find this sort of peat bog in Scandinavia. In this unusual botanic place you can see very rare or unique plants in Savoie (like some famous carnivorous plants).
