Ray Mears visits The Vanoise National Park in the high Alps. Here he meets local goat herder Audrey who enlists his help moving her goats up to summer pastures. He explores the seasonal nature of the mountain and how humans and wildlife have adapted to the altitude and extremes of weather. He meets local park ranger Alex who take him up to see some ibex. He gets up close to see ibex jousting and hopping down the sheer cliff faces. Further up the mountain he enlists the help of donkeys to carry his kit. During his trek Ray comes across playful marmots, enjoying the sunshine before making his way to the very top of the mountain to find one of the rarest birds in Europe, the bearded vulture.
