Complimentary Guided Walk

An increasing number of you want to stretch your legs whilst away so you may want to join a complimentary walk today. It’s not arduous, though it is best to have walking shoes or good trainers.

Our walk starts in Chamonix and we choose a route to suit our group and the weather. We will walk through the forest and across rivers, giving you a chance to immerse yourself in the area’s beautiful alpine scenery. There are stunning mountain views along the route and our local walking guide will tell us all we need to know about the area, its history and the flora and fauna. We will then return to Chamonix. Our walk can take up to four hours.

It’s a leisurely walk but places are strictly limited and must be pre-booked. This is not bookable online so please contact our reservations department for more information or to book.

Please note: This walk usually takes place on day 2 (afternoon), although this will be confirmed by your tour manager in resort.
