    mountain in the European Union it rises over
    15,000 feet high.
  • Alpine Interface has created an itinerary to
    showcase this beautiful mountain for both
    beginning and experienced trekkers alike.
  • On the next few pages, we are going to explore
    the highlights of this once-in-a-lifetime trip
    around the White Mountain.

  • An exciting ten-day vacation, eight beautiful
    days of hiking.
  • Stops include
  • Les Houches
  • Refuge Chalet de Miage
  • Refuge Nant Borrant
  • Les Chapieux
  • Courmayeur
  • Rifugio Bonatti
  • Champex-Lac
  • Trient
  • Chamonix

Day One In the shadow of Mont Blanc lies Les
Houches, where our journey begins. In this small
town, just due south of Chamonix, is where we
will have our welcome dinner and drinks, as well
as spend the evening in a quaint hotel.
Day Two Were off! From the Bellevue cable car,
well ride up to the ridge where we can see Les
Houches, the peaks surrounding Mont Blanc, and
the Arve river. Well hike our way to the
family-run Chalet de Miage where we will stay
the night.
Day Three A short climb begins our day. After
reaching the plateau, well hike past the
striking peaks of the Aiguille du Glacier and
Tre-la-Tete. This evening, our home will be one
of the oldest inns in the region.
Day Four We begin one of our longest treks with
an easy climb along a trail where the sounds of
cowbells and whistling mermots echo all around.
Once we reach the Col du Bonhomme and a French
Alpine Club, well descend into the tiny hamlet
of Les Chapieux.
Day Five After a short mini-bus ride to
Villes-des-Glaciers, we will take a tour of a
petit Beaufort cheese factory. We then cross the
Col de la Seigne where we can stand in both
France and Italy at the same time. We take a
long, calm descent to the town of Courmayeur.
Day Six With a hearty meal in our bellies, we
make our way down old towns cobble stone
streets. We steeply climb up to the Mont de la
Saxe, which soars above Courmayeur.
Day Seven From the ridge we sink down to the Val
Ferret briefly before ascending to the Rifugio
Elena the place of the worlds best hot cocoa.
After the pass, we make our way away from Italy
and enter Switzerland arriving at Champex-Lac.
Day Eight Through forests and meadows, we follow
the Bovine trail amongst the lazy herds of cows
from Val Herens. Lunch is had in a small hut
surveying the Rhone Valley where Romans first
introduced vineyards over two millenniums ago. We
stay the evening in Col de la Forclaz.
Day Nine We are presented on our last day with
the Massif du Mont Blanc, Col de Balme, and our
final destination is the village of Le Tour. We
celebrate our journey and bid each other farewell
at dinner in our hotel located in the Chamonix
Day Ten Our adventure ends after breakfast and
then back to the real world.
