An Alpine Adventure

Overview

Standing atop the Mont Blanc Massif, surrounded by soaring peaks, looking down at turquoise rivers gushing through emerald green valleys, you feel like you are on top of the world.

Located 10,000 m above sea level and encompassing 170 km, the Mont Blanc circuit is journey into the heart of the Alps. Here, you will not only discover the most breathtaking sceneries but also, somewhere along the way, you will rediscover yourself.

We follow a meandering path that links the seven valleys surrounding the magnificent Mont Blanc. We walk through lush green meadows that sway to the fresh mountain breeze, climb rugged mountainous paths going through enchanting forests and watch snow-capped peaks soar in the Alps.

Beautiful and warm chalets cozy up in the arms of the mountains and make for a perfect stay during our Alpine adventure.

So, as you reach the end of your incredible voyage, you are overcome with a flurry of emotions, amazed by nature’s spectacular beauty and feel like you have just had a little piece of heaven.

Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Geneva

Day 02: Col du Balme to Col du Possettes

We start the day with a hearty breakfast.

Our first walk of the week is on the slopes of the Col du Balme from where a stunning view of Mont Blanc and Switzerland greets us. From the small hamlet of Montroc, we have a short warm-up walk before the trail turns uphill on a steady zigzag path. As the trees thin out, the view gets even better and by late morning we reach Aiguilette des Possettes. This stunning peak overlooks the Chamonix Valley, the Aiguille Rouge National Park and parts of Switzerland. The path continues down to the Col du Possettes and then on a steady trail becomes winding and ends at La Tour.

Overnight stay at the cozy Chalet.

 

Day 03: Bellachat Refuge to La Flatiere

We start the day with a scrumptious breakfast.

Today, we take a walk up to the beautiful Bellachat Refuge. Crossing the beautiful Carlaveyron Natural Reserve, we head up to the Aiguillette des Houches for one of the finest views in the Alps, looking directly across the Chamonix Valley to the Mont Blanc summit. Passing through alpine meadows, we descend by a different route to La Flatière.

Crossing the lines of the Tramway du Mont Blanc, the highest rack railway in France, we head into the Bionnassay Valley, dominated by the spectacular Aiguille de Bionnassay and its glacier. We continue via the little village of Le Champel towards Les Contamines commune.

From Arp Nouva we climb up and along to the Bonatti refuge.The view from here is one of the finest on the tour. Mont Blanc itself, the towering rocky peak of Grandes Jorasses and the glaciers that crowd the northern flank of Val Ferret rise magnificently.

If time permits, we head to Courmayeur, the perfect spot for a well-deserved Italian gelato.

This is the highest point of the week and a spectacular setting with dramatic, panoramic vistas. If you are lucky, you can see the majestic ibex grazing on the mountainside. We then descend via a second trail, making a circular route, and continue back to La Flégère, from where we take the cable car back down to the valley floor.

Please note, in the event that the Flegere lift is closed (spring and Autumn departures), or there is low lying snow and it is not possible to walk to Lac Blanc, we will instead walk to the beautiful Lacs des Cheserys. We then head to Flégère before descending past the charming Chalet Floria and onwards to Chamonix. This stunning and beautiful day equals the original.
