This is one of the stages of the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB). Start this itinerary by climbing from Courmayeur with many zigzags through the pine forest which offers a pleasant shade. As soon as you cross the tree line near the Bertone Refuge you can have a splendid view of Courmayeur and realize how much height it has gained. Continue following a flat path on the slopes of Val Ferret while enjoying a suggestive panorama of ice and rock on the left. The trail ends at the Bonatti Refuge, one of the highlights of the Tour du Mont Blanc. On the high slopes of Val Ferret you will enjoy breathtaking views over the whole valley. On the left you can see the patent stretch of this longer route: the Col de la Seigne as the head of the Val Veni and of France. On the right you can see the whole route up to the Grand Col Ferret which marks the border with Switzerland that can be crossed in the next MTB segment. Between these two hills is a panorama of jagged rock and ice that makes up the Mont Blanc massif. It is possible to shorten this excursion by taking the Val Ferret bus to the Bonatti Refuge junction. This way you will only have to climb 400 meters to reach the refuge. One of the many attractions that makes the Bonatti Refuge a highlight of the Tour du Mont Blanc is its remoteness and the absence of roads to get there. This segment can be done as a one day round trip or you can stay overnight at the Bonatti Refuge and return the next day or continue on the longer TBM.Show more

Along this route you will see along the valley the great moraine wall from the Pré de Bar glacier, the ruined farmhouses of Alpe Gioè (2007 meters) and finally three streams, the second of which offers the vision of a beautiful series of waterfalls. The mountainside is full of rhododendrons, blueberries and larch trees, and the view offers beautiful landscapes while the path, with moderate ups and downs, leads towards the beginning of Val Ferret, crossing several small streams along the way. Nearby there is a bus which takes about 45 minutes to Courmayeur: departure times are marked at the stop and tickets can be purchased on board. You can also reach the banks of the Dora by crossing a small bridge. This route is part of the Tour du Mont Blanc. It is not an entire segment itself but is part of segment 2.Show more

This loop takes you along some of the Gran Paradiso mountain group. Climb up an old mule trail to the historical hunting lodge of King Vittorio Emanuele II, called Rifugio Sella. From here, head south to Casolari di Herbetet and then back along the river to Valnontey. From Rifugio Sella on, the route is mostly downhill. The loop is full of sweeping views of surrounding mountains and valleys, with ibex and other wildlife along the way. There is a chain to grab onto between the Rifugio and Casolari, but watch your feet as it can be rocky.Show more
