Accommodation on this trip is on shared basis
The first night will be spent in a comfortable hotel or chalet in Argentiere. The following 7 nights will be booked in simple but comfortable hotels, with 1 night in a mountain refuge and 1 night in a guesthouse, before returning to a hotel in Argentierefor the final 2 nights. All accommodation is on a twin or double room basis, with triple rooms sometimes available for groups of three people travelling together. Mountain huts offer a wonderful authentic experience, as long as you are happy with basic sleeping arrangements (mixed dormitories with bunk beds) and a shared bathroom.
Meals are included on a half board basis, from dinner on arrival day to breakfast on the last day. Daily packed lunches can be provided on request from some of the hotels, or there are plenty of mountain huts and rural restaurants where you can stop for lunch along the way. You will usually be spending the night in places where you can buy trail snacks and provisions before you set off each morning. Dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice, please inform us at time of booking if you have any special requests.
Your luggage will be transported between the accommodations so you will have to carry only a small daypack (of around 30-40 litres). Your main bag (maximum weight 15kg) will be transferred between accommodations and you should have this ready for collection by 8:30 each morning. The bag will normally be delivered to your hotel by 16:00. Please note that the car can’t transport passengers, only the luggage. There will only be space to transport one bag per person.
The package price includes route information, maps, accommodation, and meals on a half board basis. You should make an allowance for daily lunches, additional snacks, drinks etc. Beer, wine and soft drinks are available at your accommodation each night. Please note that a part of the route is in Switzerland but Euros are accepted in most places we stay.
