The right things to do when faced with a herd protection dog (also called a “patou”)

The probability of finding yourself faced with a herd guarded by a guard dog during your hike on the trails of Tignes is quite low. Nevertheless, it is always useful to review the good reflexes to have so that this meeting takes place as calmly as possible, for you as for the dog.

A herd protection dog is constantly on alert to ensure the safety of the sheep he is watching and to facilitate the work of the shepherd in the mountain pastures. At the approach of a potential predator, it barks to make it move away, without distinguishing between a real threat and a simple hiker. It is up to you to adopt a reassuring behaviour:

  • Slow down and signal your presence (for example by speaking loudly or whistling)
  • Walk around the herd as widely as possible
  • If the dog approaches you: stand still in front of it, without ever looking at it in the eye, leaving your arms and sticks along your body so as not to appear threatening
  • Help the dog to recognize you as a human (take off your cap, your raincoat etc.), and talk to it in a calm tone, gently, but without trying to pet him
  • Once the dog has calmed down, continue your way slowly, always facing it
  • Does the dog stay tense? You don't feel reassured? Do not hesitate to put a bag or a piece of clothing between you and the dog and step back slowly for a few meters (still facing it and without looking at it in the eye) before turning around

 

 

 

OUR SELECTION OF WALKS

No need for an IGN map to discover these little treasures of the Tignes area!

 

Se balader à Tignes en été - 3 personnes se rafraichissant au bord d'un point d'eau

 

 

OUR FAVORITE FRESHNESS SPOT !

For an easy family walk, follow the botanical path from Le Lavachet, and reach the Gouille du Salin (Caribbean colored ice water resurgence... directly from the glacier!), then go down to the "voile de la mariée" waterfall.

 

 

TRAVEL IN TIME...

Lovers of old stones will enjoy discovering the authentic chalets of the villages on the eastern shore of the lake of Chevril and Isère:

  • Villaret du Nial
  • Franchet
  • Villaret des Brévières
  • Or the ruins of the chalets of the Saut in the Grande Sassière Nature Reserve

 

 

FOR THE CURIOUS

Throughout the summer, the rangers of the Vanoise National Park come to meet nature lovers during thematic hikes and scientific activities. // consult the program of activities // 

 

 

FOR THE GOURMETS

After the effort (of the hike), the comfort!

More original than a simple detour to the bakery, savor a blueberry pie or other sweet treat at a
refuge* (and take the opportunity to talk about food with the guards).

 

 

FOR THE ADVENTURERS IN THE MAKING

What if you spent the night in the mountains?

The refuges* are not reserved for mountaineers and hikers (even if the experience is more exciting!). Book your night, and discover the friendly and timeless atmosphere of the refuges of Palet (1h30 by the GR5), Leisse (3h by the GR55) or Martin (2h from les Brévières). Their guardians are a mine of information and anecdotes!

 

*Make sure before you leave that the refuge you want to join is open

Promenade en été en pleine nature à Tignes

 

You are in a national nature reserve, on the outskirts of the Vanoise National Park. Thanks to the reserve, it has been possible to protect the fauna and flora, and in particular, to prohibit hunting on the main migration corridor of the ibex. The day or half-day walks take place in the company of a guard-monitor. With him, you will discover the diversity of the Park and the different aspects of his job.

 

> More info: www.vanoise-parcnational.fr

 

 

There are lift passes specially designed for pedestrians! Take the funicular and make a first stop on the Panoramic terrace before taking the cable car to enjoy the view of the surrounding summits and mythical massifs: the Mont Pourri, the Grande Sassière crests, the Grande Casse (highest point of the Vanoise: 3,856 m) or the masterly chain of the Mont Blanc on the horizon. You will find 3 orientation tables on your route.

Be careful, you are in a glacial zone. To make the most of the Grande Motte glacier, hire a mountain guide!
