One of the world's classic hiking routes. On this walk, you will have the opportunity to experience both the French and Swiss Alps staying at small typical alpine villages situated along the Trient Valley.The Trient Valley, offering incredible majestic views across the highest peak in Europe, is a beautiful and dramatic background for this walking trip. Your trip starts in Chamonix, nestled in a bustling valley at the foot of the highest mountain in Europe. The Mont-Blanc, at 15,622 ft., is home to some majestic glaciers including the Mer de Glace, the Glacier of d'Argentiere and the Glacier du Trient.

On a clear day a visit up the Aiguille de Midi is breathtaking – you will feel on ‘top of the world’! You then start your walk following mountain streams along the valley bottom to the town of Le Tour. Having walked or taken the cable car to Col des Posettes with its spectacular views over the Chamonix valley, you then descend through a pine forest to the peaceful village of Le Buet and cross from France into Switzerland to the village of Finhaut at 1237m, which as the name implies is perched high on the mountain with wonderful views. Cable cars and chairlifts enable you to ascend to Emosson lake with dinosaur tracks close at hand or descend to the Tête Noir gorges. Easy to follow walking trails both along the valley floor and the higher route, link up the villages, passing by several stunning mountain gorges and alpine streams. A walking trip you certainly will remember for a life time!
