Trip dates: August 13 – 20.
Mind-blowing views of French, Swiss and Italian Alps. Hiking near glaciers, around Alpine lakes, and through the majestic mountain passes.
Chamonix-Mont Blanc attracts hikers from around the world. It is the third most visited natural site in the world. The Mont-Blanc chain is 30 km long by 10 km wide, 28 summits of more than 4,000 m, the rooftop of Europe (4,810 m), set on the French, Italian and Swiss borders. Thanks to the ski lifts and gondolas, the capital of mountaineering allows us to reach the high mountains and glacier lakes easily, so we can use all our energies to see more incredible vistas as we hike through forests, across streams, pastures, waterfalls and alpine flower beds.
Aiguille Du Midi
Ascend by Cable Car to Summit (3842 meters), behold the magical views from the panoramic, peak terraces looking out at the Alps of France, Italy and Switzerland. Our day includes a short, scenic walk to Lac Bleu & Picnic at the Lake.
Hear the tinkle of the cowbells on the Col De Balme mountain pastures, take in the splash of color in the flowers dotting the mountainside, follow the trail as you actually walk in the Swiss Alps and the French Alps all on the same day!

Glacier des Bossons
Chairlift and short walk to a Chalet overlooking the glacier, where we see calving – large chunks of ice breaking off from the glacier.
