The hike to Lacs de Fenêtre is one of the most famed of Canton du Valais, starting from the legendary hospice of Grand Saint Bernard, to get to these magnificent alpine lakes.

The reflection of the Mont Blanc and the Grandes Jorasses on the Lacs de Fenêtre is reason enough for making this hike.

From the Grand Saint Bernard hospice, between the Swiss and the Italian borders, in the pass with same name for nearly a millennium, the path takes you through a rocky medium in the search of these mountain lakes through three mountain passes. This loop will make you learn the history of this place but also appreciate the affluent nature, and why not, freshen up in one of the three Fenêtre lakes.

The one day hike has an approximate duration of 7 hours.

I invite you to contact me if you are interested in this magnificent hike. We can talk and make a customized plan! It is also quite possible to go for several days and having a great experience and beautiful moments together up there by staying, for instance, in the hospice.
