Day 3 - Cross into Italy as you hike to Courmayer

After the first two days spent in France, you will be entering Italy, through some of the most astonishing landscapes of the whole trip. You climb up through a deep gorge surrounded by vast pastures with a moon-like scene as the backdrop. The Col de la Seigne (2516m) and the Aiguille des Glaciers mountains loom large in the distance on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Eventually you reach the top of the pass then descend into the Val Ferret Valley, enjoying magnificent views of the snow-capped peaks. Arrive to La Cantine de la Visaille on foot then take the bus to Courmayeur, a renowned ski resort where you can have a well-deserved rest.

Today's 15 kilometre walk is expected to take around seven hours and you will ascend a total of 950 metres and descend almost 1000 metres.

Day 4 - Walk to La Fouly in Switzerland, bus to Champex

This morning you start by taking the bus from Courmayer to Arp Nouva from where the walk starts. Today's walk will take you up a steep ascent and past ruined farmhouses. This marks the start of your journey into Switzerland. You'll walk uphill until the top of the Col du Grand Ferret (2537 metres), where you will enter Switzerland. This side of the mountains often presents glaciers and perennial snow, as it is less exposed to the sun. The descent is through vast open meadows without any traces of human settlement, to the small hamlet of Ferret, where the trail becomes immersed in idyllic scenery of forests, creeks and picturesque bridges, leading you in a short time to the village of La Fouly from where you take the bus to Champex, a beautiful Swiss mountain village situated on a lake.

Today's 16.5 kilometre walk is expected to take around seven hours and you will ascend a total of 850 metres and descend almost 1000 metres.

This walk enjoys breathtaking panoramas of the Martigny valley and reaches 2,750 metres.

An exhilarating rocky trail along the mountain crest allows you to enjoy astounding views of the glacier and the surrounding valleys. As you reach the border between Switzerland and France, you can see the magnificence of Mont Blanc, a real highlight of the trip, especially on sunny and bright days. You will start to descend among pastures for the last section of the walk until you arrive at your overnight stop in Argentiere.

Day 7 - Final trek to Chamonix

You begin walking through the pretty little village of Les Frasserands with its typically Alpine wooden houses. You start climbing uphill, into the Aiguilles Rouges Natural Park. You can decide if you want to continue to climb up to Lac Blanc, (it involves a short climb on an iron ladder which is not recommended if you suffer from vertigo), or start descending to La Flegere. The route is very panoramic with the Mont Blanc massif of the Aiguille Verte, the Drus, the Aiguille du Midi, Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Blanc laid out in front of you. Descend to Chamonix via Le Praz, if you wish you can take the cable car (not included) down to Chamonix (the last one is at 17:00 hrs).

Trip information

Country information

France

Climate

Across France, from April - August, weather conditions are generally warm and pleasant with moderate rainfall; Autumn temperatures are a bit lower and the winter months (though colder) remain mild. The summer months on the Mediterranean Coast in the south tend to be warmer than the rest of France and have less rainfall, and also more mild winters; freezing conditions are nearly unheard of. The mountainous areas of the Alps, Juros and Pyrenees can be quite different. During summer the morning and evening temperatures are considerably cooler and it becomes much colder in winter with heavy snowfall. Western France, along the English Channel, there can be very strong winds and frequent rain during the winter months Nov - Apr. Wine harvesting takes place in late August/early September.

Footwear

We recommend walking boots with proper ankle support and good tread. Make sure that your boots are worn-in and comfortable before the start of the trip. We recommend that you wear/carry your walking boots as hand luggage on the international flight. Should your luggage be delayed, your well broken in boots will be irreplaceable. Trainers or trekking sandals are useful for relaxing in the evening.

Luggage: On tour

You will need one main piece of baggage (up to 15kg) and a waterproof daypack sufficiently large to take spare layers of clothing, your water bottle, picnic and camera during each days walking (25-40 litres recommended).

Please clearly mark your bag with your name and the name of the next accommodation in order to indicate where the bag should go to next. Bags should be ready and at the reception or store room by 09:00 on the morning of your departure.

Luggage transfer

A luggage transfer is included between each accommodation for one item weighing up to 15kg. This is provided by a local taxi supplier.

Bring a water bottle (preferably 2 litres) and high factor sun cream. Trekking poles are recommended. Tap water is safe to drink as are the fountains found in villages, but water sources along the trail may not always be drinkable. Using tap or purified water rather than bottled water will help avoid creating plastic bottle waste. Energy snacks including chocolate and sweets are recommended whilst on trek.
