    Val Ferret has one of the most amazing views of the Alps, join one of our guides in this 3-day hike to enjoy the most out of it!

    This program is designed to hike along a ridge that we like to call the Grandes Jorasses Balcony because it goes through an alpine meadow and grazing land, that allows you to enjoy the spectacular view of the Mont Blanc and Grandes Jorasses summits.

    We’ve designed this trip to follow your wishes and physical strength so there will be some options along the way. For example on the first day you’ll meet with one of our guides in Courmayeur and hike to the beautiful Bertone hut (1991 m). Here you’ll be able to chose if you want to rest and enjoy this spot or if you want to continue hiking to the summit of the Mont de la Saxe in the late afternoon.

    The second day you’ll understand why we call this program the Grandes Jorasses Balcony. We’ll follow a trail with a great scenery to a the Bonatti hut (2025 m) where we’ll have lunch and then continue to Elena hut (2061 m) at the end of Val Ferret.

    And to finish this fun adventure we’ll ascend to the Col du Grand Ferret (2537 m) on the last day and cross the Col du Petit Ferret to hike down to Arnouva and take a bus to Courmayeur.

    What People are Saying about Aosta Mountain Guide-


    Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.
