Trek - In the heart of Beaufortain and at the gates of the Mont-Blanc mountain range

This trek is an immersion of three days in the wild massif of Beaufortain. Our adventure will start on the alpine pastures of Cormet de Roselend, where the Tarine cows produce the rich milk for the production of the delicious Beaufort cheese. We will leave in the direction of the mythical Pierra Menta and sleep in the evening in front of her in the refuge of Presset which is brand new. The next day, the continuation of the course will continue in the combe of the Neuva then in the direction of the cross of the Cross of the Bonhomme. We are at the crossroads of the route of the Tour du Mont-Blanc and Tour du Beaufortain. On the third day, after a short morning climb towards the Tête des Fours Nord, we will return to our starting point by the crests of the Gittes. This is a relatively easy trek on three days that will allow you to discover beautiful and wild landscapes.
