traveller reviews

  • The trip was excellent. The walking was challenging but really enjoyable. Our kids aged 10 and 12 loved the donkeys and learned a lot about getting them ready in mornings, helping to load the gear onto them. Our guide Yoan was superb. He had boundless patience and energy. Encouraging younger children on tougher ascents and generally creating a great atmosphere for the whole group. D. Mcconnell Cookstown, UK
This specialised walk ensures that all members of the family experience the spectacular trails and wonderful alpine spirit of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps. Guided along mountain trails this relaxed itinerary provides awesome views of Mont Blanc with overnight stays in charming alpine villages and mountain huts. Carrying only a day pack, our donkeys transport our bags and supplies, and become part of the walking experience with the children taking turns leading their favourite donkey. We have plenty of time to enjoy the small villages we happen upon along the way, including the delightful La Fouly and enchanting Trient. Staying in local refuges we feast on French, Swiss and Italian cuisine. This itinerary, suitable for active children from age 7 and up, provides an exhilarating alpine walk with unforgettable vistas around every bend.
