Chamonix French Alps Trip

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.
