For mountain walkers the Chamonix valley is a natural place to go. Chamonix itself is a famous base for mountaineers, skiers and walkers, and the whole valley has huge prospects for exploration on foot.
Our standard schedule for Chamonix plots a course among four different bases, the aim being to show all that the valley and surrounding hills have to offer. We propose starting in quiet Argentiere, then spending a night in a hut with views to Mont Blanc (weather permitting!) and moving on to Les Houches, before finishing in Chamonix in the heart of all the action. This is a highly flexible schedule and many of our Chamonix clients ask us for variations. Shorter or longer, more luxurious or more basic, more settled or more nomadic, we have itineraries to suit all.
This being a self-guided holiday, you're free to complete the walks as you choose: we arrange everything for you, including booking accommodation and providing you with routecards for the walking, and then it's up to you to carry out the walks yourself.
We stay in good, family-run hotels that give a great welcome, plus spectacularly sited huts.
