We are all finding our own ways to work through our collective lockdown - but we all have one thing in common, needing something to look forward to!

I don’t know about you, but I have been finding it really difficult to make any decisions - because we are living in such unchartered territory, I find that I don’t have any point of reference to base the decision on..

However, as you may know, we have been working hard with our colleagues who run the hotels and refuges along our hiking trails to make sure that when we can be more certain of things, we are going to be able to guide & assist you, with what may perhaps be your first sweet taste of freedom in quite some time!

Following the announcement , we were able to take the decision that we can now open up new dates for both our guided tours and our self guided walking holidays of the Tour du Mont Blanc and the wonderful Walkers Haute Route in August and September this year.

August will be a month to look forward to, both in Chamonix and on the hiking trails. Why is this? Well we enjoy fabulous weather throughout the summer and this year we have more accommodation options than usual, sadly the large sports events that usually take place in Chamonix in August were cancelled some time ago. Therefore due to the cancellation of these major sporting events in August this has given much needed availability, which means if you can come, we will be here to ensure you have the walking holiday you deserve!

It's fantastic to hear that the Tour de France will also go ahead at the end of August.

September is a fabulous month to trek in the European Alps, the routes can be hiked long into the Autumn however by mid September the hotels & refuges usually start to close. We have additional great news as our accommodation partners have agreed to extend their season until the end of September.

So we finally have something tangible to look forward to…Hooray!

Have a look at our dates and pricesto see if any of our guided treks on the Tour of Mont Blanc or along the Walkers Haute Route from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn in August and September suit you.

Alternatively, get in touch if you would like to discuss either a guided or self-guided holiday. Self- guided holidays are not restricted to dates and you can therefore also choose to hike the Vanoise National Park or one of our other routes - we can advise you on which route to choose.
