  • Spend 6 thrilling days exploring the Ruan mountain and its surroundings.

  • See the glory of the French and Swiss Alps from different vantage points.

  • Spend the night in a different mountain hut, cabin or refuge.

Located in the Alps between France and Switzerland, the Ruan tower (3,044m) is a fantastic peak. And the area surrounding it is a gorgeous representation of the Alps at its finest. Hence why I am thrilled to take you on a 6 day trekking tour around the great mountain.

Joined by two satellite summits, the Petit Ruan (2,847m) and the Grand Ruan (3,057m), the Ruan mountain is a majestic peak that only grows more impressive the longer you spend near it.

Throughout this 6 day hiking tour, we will explore the French, Haute-Savoie region and the Swiss, Valais canton. This trek will take you to a variety of fantastic spots. Some examples include the Vallee du Haut-Giffre, the Trient Valley and the district of Saint-Maurice. There will also be some exciting climbs on this trip as well, including a journey to the highest point of  the trek, the Cheval-Blanc (2,830m). From the summit of this great peak, you will get to enjoy an unforgettable, panoramic view of the Alps that will let you see as far as the legendary Mont Blanc mountain (4,810m).

We will be staying in different cabins, huts or refuges during this tour. With so many to choose from, you can rest assured that wherever you spend the night will be comfortable and ideal for the rest necessary for the following day’s journey.

This trip will be challenging. So you should have some prior experience and be in good physical condition.

Do you want to see the Alps from both France and Switzerland? Then send me a request, and join me on this sensational 6 day trek around the Ruan mountain.

I can also lead you on a 5 day trek around the Dents du Midi in the Swiss Alps.
