Snowshoe trip in picture postcard mountainscapes at the foot of Mont Blanc
The perfect mix between effort & relaxation, simplicity & luxury!
Our trip starts on Monday in the beautiful little town of Entrèves close to Courmayeur.
From here we start our hike to the comfortable Bonatti mountain cabin (One of the nicest huts in the Alps…).
The path today is a nice and gentle one, following a semi-frozen river and surrounded by some majestic peaks such as the `Grandes Jorasses’. Only when we reach the forest, the ascent gets more sustained. Having left the forest behind us (at 2000 m.), we will enjoy stunning views over the Mont Blanc and the other impressing peaks of the Aosta Valley.
Once in the mountain hut, we can look forward to a delicious mulled wine or cold beer, to recover from the rigours of the day. Dinner is cooked with locally sourced ingredients.
The second day, conditions allowing (ours and Mother Nature’s) we could opt for a detour with an ascension of the Col Entre Deux Sauts or we head straight back to civilisation and get the most out of our stay in our 4 star hotel with its beautiful thermal baths. (QC Terme Monte Bianco in Pré Saint Didier).
After a magnificent breakfast (you can even make your own healthy smoothy!) we’ll head to Arpy, from where we’ll hike up to a picture perfect mountain lake of glacial origin.
Along the way, we will appreciate the beautiful views of the valley and meet probably some wild animals, or at least their foot prints…
After our lunch and having soaked in the superb winter mountain ambiance, it’s time to walk back and say goodbye…
For those who love being active in the outdoors but also appreciate the comfort of a 4 star wellness hotel, and last but not least…Italian Food!
Snowshoeing isn’t difficult but you have to be fit as we’ll walk up to 4-5 hours per day.
