traveller reviews

  • Very well organised tour. We had no problems with anything. Great accommodation. Good itinerary which took into account our needs and our abilities. Would do it again. T. Grosman. Middle Cove, NSW, Australia
  • Fin trip + so easy for a single person to do. The hotel bookings (not done by me) and the 10 kg luggage shuffle (not done by me) are worth every cent!! T. Martin. NSW. Australia
  • Excellent accommodation. Need to stress the importance of fitness for the trip! We had a FABULOUS experience and are both eager for more alpine walking. S. Vanderwerff. QLD, Australia,
  • Maps were fantastic and the plastic waterproof pocket was excellent! A.Frandas VIC, Australia
  • Highly recommend this trip and UTracks. The self-guided option worked well for us as we were able to maintain our own pace - everything is well-marked and there are lots of people to ask along the way about conditions, timing etc. The refuges are great fun. J.Fidler Sydney, Australia
  • On the whole accommodation was warm, clean and friendly and food of good quality. Stunning walk, challenging but very worthwhile. A wonderful experience. D. Lockie Barwon Heads, VIC
A trek around the highest peak in the European Alps where spectacular alpine scenery combines with the charm of French, Swiss and Italian mountain villages. This historic itinerary takes you across passes, around enormous glaciers and via stunning lakes to take in some of the best viewpoints in the Alps. Meadows crossed by clear melt water streams lead you downwards to green pastures where shepherds will sell their fresh Beaufort cheese to you! Mountain refuges and charming gtes provide a relaxing respite at the end of your day's trek. This journey is for experienced alpine walkers - providing an enthralling alpine adventure with unsurpassed views.
