Questo è una delle tappe del Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB). Inizia questo itinerario salendo da Courmayeur con molti zig-zag attraverso la pineta che offre una piacevole ombra. Non appena si supera il limite degli alberi vicino al Rifugio Bertone si può avere una splendida vista su Courmayeur e rendersi conto di quanta altezza si è guadagnata. Si prosegue seguendo un sentiero pianeggiante sulle pendici della Val Ferret mentre si gode un suggestivo panorama di ghiaccio e roccia sulla sinistra. Il sentiero termina al Rifugio Bonatti uno dei momenti clou del Tour du Mont Blanc. Sulle alte pendici della Val Ferret godrete di panorami mozzafiato su tutta la valle. Sulla sinistra si vede il tratto pervio di questo percorso più lungo: il Col de la Seigne come capo della Val Veni e della Francia. Sulla destra si vede tutto il percorso fino al Grand Col Ferret che segna il confine con la Svizzera che si può attraversare nel successivo segmento di MTB. Tra questi due colli è un panorama di roccia frastagliata e ghiaccio che compone il massiccio del Monte Bianco. È possibile accorciare questa escursione prendendo l'autobus della Val Ferret fino al Bivio Rifugio Bonatti. In questo modo dovrai salire solo 400 metri per raggiungere il rifugio. Una delle tante attrattive che rende il Rifugio Bonatti un punto culminante del Tour du Mont Blanc è la sua lontananza e l'assenza di strade per arrivarci. Questo segmento può essere fatto come un viaggio di andata e ritorno di un giorno oppure puoi pernottare al Rifugio Bonatti e tornare il giorno successivo o continuare sulla TBM più lunga.Show more

Part of this path follows the old hunting road of King Vittorio Emanuele II. The road runs alongside the Valnontey stream, crosses a mule track inside a larch forest and offers beautiful views of the valley below. Arriving at Ponte delle Thoules on the Gran Lauson stream, the hardest part begins with a considerable slope on underground rocky plates. At 2224 m you pass near Alpe Pascieux, a cluster of crumbling wooden and stone huts and then arrive at the Gran Lauson pasture at 2506 m, at the Casotto del Lauson 2588 m and finally at the Vittorio Sella Refuge. Here at the top you can wander the length and breadth of the valley meeting marmots, chamois and ibex. You can stay overnight at the Refuge and go back the next day and have breakfast with the chamois. If you are motivated you can continue to Lake Lauson where you can see ibexes if you are patient and lucky.Show more

The Col Ferret or Col du Grand Ferret is an alpine pass between the canton of Valais in Switzerland and the Aosta Valley in Italy. This hike is a very small section of the longer route that is the Tour du Mont Blanc. Nearby, you can also visit the Petit Col Ferret which separates the Mont Blanc massif from the Pennine Alps. The path to the Grand Col Ferret is well marked. You will cross bridges over rivers and streams, light woods and then go up a pasture (there may be cows). At the right time of the year, you may come across areas covered with wild blueberries. From the top of the ridge you will find one of the most tranquil and beautiful places surrounded by the hissing of marmots, the bleating of goats and the streaming of water.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
