The trip will start in the Chamonix valley (Les Houches). We're off on a 7-day hike around the roof of Europe. The tour will be clockwise (the opposite of the usual direction) to avoid the tourist flow.
From Praz-de-Chamonix, we'll take the Flégère ski lift to enjoy one of the best views of the Aiguilles de Chamonix, the summit of Mont Blanc, the mer de glace, the Aiguille verte and the Aiguille du Midi from the Lac Blanc in the Aiguille Rouge nature reserve. After spending the night at the foot of the Tour glacier, we start our second day with a pretty climb along the ridge path via the Aiguillette des Posettes before heading back to Switzerland. A taxi transfer takes us to the village of La Fouly in the Swiss Val Ferret. Our route continues towards Italy via a less frequented and wilder variant of the TMB at the foot of Dolent. After a night in a mountain hut at the foot of the Pré de Bard glacier, we continue on one of the most beautiful stages of the route: a panoramic path facing the Italian side of the Grandes Jorasses. A night in a hotel in Courmayeur will be welcome to recuperate in the middle of the route and to discover this very pretty Valle d'Aostan village and its characteristic wood and slate architecture. The next day we'll head up the Val Veny to the foot of the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey, the Aiguille de Tré la tête and the Aiguille des Glaciers before heading back to France via the Col de la Seigne. A taxi will be waiting for us in the town of the glaciers to take us to a former mountain pasture farmhouse restored as a refuge lost at the bottom of a glacial valley off the classic TMB route. The next day, we'll reach the Col du Bonhomme via the Chemin du Curé, a path cut into the rock, before descending to Les Contamines-Montjoie. The final day will take us through the magnificent mountain pastures of Miage and Col de Tricot. We're at the foot of the miage domes, the aiguille de Bionnassay and can make out the "classic" route up to the mont-blanc with the refuge du goûter looming over the eponymous aiguille.
And if you are still asking for more, why not try treks on other mountain range?
