French Alps - 20 July 2019
Explore the Alps and enjoy the beautiful mountain flora, birds and wildlife.
A wonderful week of exploring the Alps gently on foot with the opportunity to see the beautiful mountain flora, birds and wildlife. Use of the ski lifts during the week will give access to different areas across the mountains without having to spend every day walking up a mountain! Remember to bring your pair of binoculars which you can use on the walks to spot some of the local alpine wildlife.
During this week, we will enjoy fascinating walks amongst the local flora and wildlife along mountain trails with panoramic viewpoints and sparkling rivers. For the brave, there are opportunities to dip into the cooling natural lakes! And then back in the chalet, relax with our hot tubs, saunas, afternoon teas and fantastic home-cooked dinners.
About the walks
The walks range from 5-9 miles per day and require a basic level of fitness and good balance. Remember, our chalet is at an altitude of 2000m above sea level the peaks are over 3000m where the air is thinner! The mountain paths tend to be rocky and uneven so sturdy footwear is a must.
