Location - acces



*The refuge is situated on the Mont Joly side of Les Contamines about 10 minutes walk from the church in the centre of village.

When you reach the church on the GR Tour du Mont Blanc, keep left, go through the village until you get to the "pont des Loyers", from there go right and follow the "vieux chemin" to the end and you will find us!


*By car, just before the village turn right at the junction indicating the ski station "domaine skiable and the refuge CAF Nivorin" follow this road (approx 2km) called the plan de Moulin we are No. 22 on the left hand side.

*Access - Accessible by road, also by public transport from the SNCF train station in Sallanches.  Take the No. 84 SAT Bus which has regular service links between Sallanches/Le Fayet/St Gervais and Les Contamines.
