CTC 1953 Tour Part 2 – Chartreuse and Bugey

The massif de la Chartreuse separates the Alps from the Jura, and is deeply forested with gorges cut through the limestone plateaux by fast running rivers. To the north is Chambery, ancient capital of Savoie and full of historic buildings, including its 14th chateau and 15th century cathedral.

Beyond that is the Lac du Bourget, France’s largest lake of glacial origins and then the region of Bugey – which includes the southern foothills of the Jura and peaks at Le Grand Colombier.

The tour spent three days in Chartreuse and Bugey – these can be accessed by clicking on the pictures below.
