Day 1: Chamonix Alt 1035m - Col de Balme Alt 2191m - Martigny Alt 471m - Champex Alt 1466m Switzerland.
Meet your guide at 9am in Chamonix. This first day gives us the chance to make the most of the Chamonix valley seen from above, with its legendary glaciers and peaks as a backdrop. Having arrived at the Col de Balme we drop into the Swiss side of the pass for an attractive, fast and winding descent that leads us to Martigny. A cycle up to Champex, through pretty, typical Swiss chalets, awaits us in the afternoon. Night’s half-board in hotel in the village of Champex.
Elevation gain : from 1300 to 1600m depending on itineraries - Distance : from 35km to 45km
Private transfer by minibus from Vernayas to Gorges de Durnant (or higher depending on the group)
Day 2 : Champex Alt. 1466m - Issert Alt. 1100m - Col Ferret Alt. 2537m - Courmayeur 1242m Italy.
We leave the village of Champex via the ‘sentier des Champignons’ (‘mushroom path’) to reach Issert. The day’s challenge will be the ascent of the Grand Col Ferret, which, at an altitude of 2537m, is the highest point on the famous Tour of Mont Blanc. The alpine pass allows us to cross, through a high-altitude environment, from the Swiss Val Ferret to the Italian Val Ferret. As a reward for our efforts, there is a long descent beneath the watchful gaze of the Grandes Jorasses and the south face of Mont Blanc, along what are sometimes quite technical singletrack sections. Night’s half-board in hotel in Courmayeur.
Elevation gain : from 1200 to 1400m depending on itineraries - Distance : from 45km to 55km
Private transfer by minibus from Issert to Ferret
Day 3 : Courmayeur Alt 1242m - Col de la Seigne Alt. 2516m - Plan Mya Alt. 1860m France.
We return to France via the famous Col de la Seigne (2516m). Total immersion in a rocky landscape and grandiose panorama are guaranteed! A day devoted to one of the best singletracks in the area, all the way to the Mottets hut… Explore the Vallée des Glaciers, the Beaufortain trails as well as the area around the Lac de Roseland, along a choice of varied technical and non-technical routes. We spend the night in an authentic mountain pasture hut, complete with local traditions and local products, for simplicity and a return to basics… Night’s half-board in mountain hut.
Elevation gain : +/- 1300m depending on itineraries - Distance :+/- 45km
Private transfer by minibus from Courmayeur to Visaille
Day 4 : Plan Mya Alt. 1860m - Col de Gittaz Alt. 2377m - Contamines Alt. 1164m - Col de Voza Alt. 1657m - Back in Chamonix 1035m.
The final stage takes us back to Chamonix, through the Beaufortain and the Val Montjoie, via a surprising area known as the ‘Grande Pierriere’. A day devoted to high-mountain pastures, technical singletracks and fast trails, as well as the traverse of mountain passes with uninterrupted views across the Aravis range and Mont Blanc chain… A great and intense day, with, it has to be said, quite a bit of distance to cover and a not insignificant positive height gain to honour! Return to Chamonix late afternoon and end of trip.
Elevation gain : +/- 1700m depending on itineraries - Distance :+/- 50km
Private transfer by minibus from Contamines to Champel
