Description

Nice family destination facing Mont-Blanc and Beaufortain. Forest road to the refuge: friendly reception of the alpagists (snack, local products). For children, presence of farm animals.
The Plan de l'Aar hike is a magnificent family hike with the refuge de l'Aar at an altitude of 1731 metres as its goal.

Starting from the hamlet of La Tonnaz, there are no major difficulties on the way up to the refuge. This hike is ideal for a family weekend and a first experience in a refuge with children.

At the refuge, you'll be welcomed by the mountain pastoralists, who'll prepare a meal and picnic for you to take away, with delicious mountain produce to match!

Your children will also be able to discover the farm animals on site, and understand the importance of the presence of the herds in our Alpine pastures and the upkeep of the mountain that they carry out. Check the weather forecast before setting off.
Pack your rucksack with cereal bars, plenty of water, sunglasses, sun cream, a small first-aid kit and the right clothes for your outing, depending on the season and the weather forecast. Always ask mountain professionals for advice.

Hamlet Tonnaz

The village of Praz sur Arly was originally made up of three hamlets, called "dîmeries": La Thona, Réon and the Pratz de Megève.The most populated was La Thona where the inhabitants quite logically built their farms on the Adret, the sunniest side of the valley. It was dependent on the Commune of Megève and its agricultural activity was limited to daily tasks indispensable for survival. Then in 1834, Praz declared its independence but only obtained it in 1869 because of problems related to the dividing up of the land. Nowadays the Tonnaz hamlet is one of Praz sur Arly's most important heritage sites and it will delight lovers of traditional regional architecture.
