Description

The Saint-Bernard tour will let you discover one alpine trek not very famous but quite interesting. This 6-day hike is full of beautiful trails, its heart is the Grand-Saint Bernard pass, at 2473m, in the border between Italy and Switzerland, between the Val d’Aoste and the Valais.

Starting from the Bourg-Saint-Pierre village, we will be going in the direction to the Grand-Saint-Bernard pass, following a millennial trail once used by the Romans or even Napoleon. The hospice, so tranquil, welcomes us for the first stage before continuing on to Italy in the direction to Val Ferret. Then we hike in a dream setting next to mythical summits while reaching, step by step, La Fouly village.

Our hike will drive us to the Grand-Saint-Bernard valley, crossing mountain pastures and forests before one last night in the area of Mille lodge, next to Petit Combin.

We will be walking for around 6 hours each day, staying in mountain refuges and lodges.

I will allow up to 10 people with me. If your group were more numerous, I would ask a friend guide (also certified by UIMLA) to come with us.

I invite you to contact me if you are planning to come here the next summer. It would be a pleasure to take you some days around these beautiful mountain trails and let you discover this region, which I know very well, since I’ve hiked, skied and ran there many times.
