L'Arclusaz

Seen from below, from the Combe de Savoie, or surveyed in its heart by the paths of the pass, the Arclusaz synclinal marks by its grandiose character and a spectacular geometry which immerses you in great in the geological history of the massif Bauges.

The Arclusaz is the perched syncline par excellence in the shape of a horseshoe, which illustrates a number of works in geology or geography. It results from the folding of a thick limestone layer during the formation of the Alps, almost 20 million years ago.

Its highest point is the Dent de l'Arclusaz: 2041m
