AdvertisementTrekking tour along the western alpine range passing Mont Blanc and traversing trough the beautiful Beaufortain region. Further south we hike trough the oldest French national Park, the Vanoise Park before entering the Ecrins park. Final destination is the beautiful historical old town of Briancon.
This Traverse of the Alps hiking tour leads from Chamonix, the foot of Mont Blanc to Briancon in the Southern French Alps? Cross with us on this journey the French Alps on the most beautiful alpine trails from north to south. This trip starts in Chamonix and crosses the alpine pastures of the Beaufortain and the Vanoise National Park in high alpine ambience. With the ascent of Mt. Thabor 3178m we face our long distance destination, the Massif des Écrins.
During this traverse of the Alps hiking tour we spend the night in beautiful mountain huts and reach Briançon on narrow paths. Located at an altitude of 1,326 metres, at the confluence of five valleys, Briançon is the highest town in France. This City of Art of History, fortified by French military architect Vauban in the 18th century, is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site precisely because of its remarkable group of fortifications built between the 18th and 20th centuries in order to improve the town’s defence system.
We cover short stretches by cab and have access to our extra luggage every few days.
