You will spend the first and the last nights at the Yeti Lodge in Argentiere. This is a very nice, newly renovated chalet with sauna, hot tub, secure parking and WiFi. The accommodation here is on a shared basis (twin rooms) with a continental breakfast (freshly baked croissants, pain au chocolate, bread, fruit, cereals, yoghurt, fruit juices and tea/coffee), afternoon tea with homemade cake and 3 course evening meal.
For the remaining nights, we will book comfortable hotels, gites and mountain huts where you can enjoy the spectacular views and sunsets over the mountains. Where possible, we will book rooms with maximum two / three beds but some nights may be in larger dorm rooms. Please note that this is a very popular trek, which passes through small villages where accommodation options are limited, therefore we cannot offer you private single rooms. However we promise you hotels and gites with character, comfort and good food. The limited accommodation availability is also reason why we recommend that you book this trip as early as possible, as it is often difficult to find rooms at the last minute.
Breakfast and dinner are included in this trip, from dinner on arrival day to breakfast on the last day. Lunches are not included in the package, but are very easy to organise at the refuges and gites for the following morning. Your guide will also help you to get organised . We also recommend that you bring additional snacks with you, as these can be expensive to purchase on the way. Dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice, please inform us at time of booking if you have any special requests.
All meals on a half board basis, accommodation and transport is included in the trip package. You should however allow some spending money for daily packed lunches, additional snacks, drinks (soft drinks, wine, beer), etc. Estimated 150 - 200€ should cover typical requirements. Please note that majority of places do not accept bank card payments, you will need cash. You will be passing through Switzerland (1 night) where you will need some Swiss francs. There is possibility to withdraw Swiss money from cash points in La Fouly or Champex
You can take one piece of luggage (15kg maximum) and a day pack (30l – 40l). During the trek, you will carry the day pack only, the luggage will be daily transported between the hotels/gites. It will be collected at 8:30h each morning and delivered in the next overnight stop at 4:00pm. Please note that there is no possibility to get a ride with the baggage.
