On our first hiking day, we’ll ascend through the forest towards Col de Vosa. We’ll then go through the Bionassay Glacier and climb the Col de Tricot. That night we’ll stay in a hotel on the village of Les Contamines.
On the third day, we’ll hike for 8-9 hours and cover 22 kilometers. That night, we’ll stay in guest houses at Refuge des Mottets.
We’ll cover 24 kilometers in 8-9 hours! This is the day with the best views of Mont Blanc. We’ll sleep in a hotel in La Palud.
Monte Saxe ridge day! We’ll sleep in a charming mountain refuge in Rifugio Bonatt.
Impressive views! We’ll cross into Switzerland and sleep in a hotel in La Fouly.
The most physically demanding day of the trip! But a fascinating mountain refuge to spend the night.
The most difficult day of the tip: descents, rock climbing and spectacular views of the Trient Glacier. Night in a guest house in Trient.
Hiking day around the Chamonix Valley (destination will depend on the weather). We’ll sleep in a chalet for the following 3 nights.
This is the day we’ll get to see western Europe’s highest peak! We’ll also be doing some via ferrata.
The last day will be spent hiking around Brévent, with a section in cable car. I promise amazing views.
We’ll share a last breakfast together.

- Most days, you will need to carry just a normal pack with kit for a day walk. On the 2 nights with no lugagge delivery you'll need to carry minimal wash kit, travel towel and a set of clean / dry clothes, and a sheet
sleeping bag liner (you don't need a sleeping bag becuase the huts all provide blankets)
