Aiguilles Rouges Natural Nature Reserve
While Aiguilles Rouges serves up sublime ski touring in winter, the true glory of this natural reserve is revealed once the snow melts. Earning its name from the granite spires that glow red at sunrise, this spot in Argentière boasts walking trails for all levels. Its slopes above the Chamonix Valley entice hikers with a penchant for Alpine pastures; its elevated lake (Lac Blanc) bewitches many with its mirror image of the Mont Blanc massif on its emerald surface. Many hikers devote days to exploring Aiguilles Rouges, declared a natural reserve in 1971, taking in fields of orchids, and snapping ibex, marmots, chamois, and deer. To delve deeper into the abundance of fauna and flora, visit the information cabin at the Col des Montets.
