ACCESS & CONTACT

Access to the refuge

In summer, the Refuge de Solaise is accessible by road via the Col de l'Iseran from Val d'Isère or Bonneval-sur-Arc.

In winter, access to the Refuge de Solaise is exclusively by the Solaise gondola which leaves from the snow front and arrives 200 m upstream from the hotel.
