Route summary
Whilst the walking may be hard, one reward will be some excellent cooking.  Our hotels and chambres d'hotes are all family run and each has a unique and personal feel. Please note that the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix les Bossons closes in mid-September, and the (alternative) Hotel de l'Arve in Chamonix town is then used on a B&B basis. Exceptionally in 2016 the route is unavailable between 16 and 23 July inclusive as the Tour de France passes through the area.
Where you'll stay
All en-suite unless otherwise stated.
