Ultra Adventure

Alps Challenge

2 Ultra Treks 2 Days 

Part of a 5 Day Adventure

Wed 20 - Sun 24th June 2018

A tough yet iconic trek; following a classic trail from Italy through to France amongst Europe's most stunning mountain scenery. We begin our journey in flying into Geneva, then transferring to the start line in Italy - trekking across the border into France. The challenging route follows valleys, streams, 2,500m mountain passes and skirts the flanks of the mighty Mont Blanc. We spend 2 nights in mountain resorts, high in remote villages before crossing the finish line in Chamonix where a well-deserved celebration & hotel stay awaits.
