Nestled in a dramatic corner of the French Alps, snug against the Swiss border, and hours away from the hustle and bustle in the Mont Blanc region, this hut to hut hike in the French Alps delivers all the beauty, nature, and charm that your heart may desire. The comfortable trails, friendly hut staff, and marmots seen along the way all add to the experience. As opposed to many other hut hiking tours, this tour stays rather high, rarely dropping down all the way into a valley along the way.
This tour is perfect for those wanting minimal exposure and more mellow grades than can be found elsewhere in the western Alps.
Although this tour is feasible from mid-June to mid-September, it is likely to encounter problematic snowfields in late-June, and snowstorms in early September.
