Technical Information

Route

Take path no. 13 in front of the hotel in Vétan-Dessus and climb a short slope that, after a short time, leads to some meadows. Turn right along the course of an old irrigation canal until you reach a crossroads under the Thoules pasture. From here, continue to the right on a gravel road which is now completely covered in grass and cuts horizontally into the valley of the Méod stream. At the next crossroads, leave the path to Alpe Loé on the right and turn left following the signs for the refuge. The path begins to climb steeply in the larch forest along the ridge on the East side of the valley until it reaches the unpaved road that leads to the refuge. To the right of the refuge starts path 13B which in about 15 minutes reaches the Frogs lake.
The whole path is an open-air museum because along the route we can find numerous wooden sculptures made by Siro Viérin, one of the most popular sculptors in the Aosta Valley.
