Val Ferret tour

Starting from the center of Courmayeur Locality Planpincieux, at the gates of the Val Ferret, this route leads almost to the Swiss border, enjoying uninterruptedly the majestic view of the Mont Blanc chain from the Grandes Jorasses to Mont Dolent.
The Val Ferret, sunny and mild in the summer, is also suitable for families with children.

The beginning of the route, which connects the center of Courmayeur to the entrance of the Val Ferret, takes place on a paved road. Once in Planpincieux, you can decide whether to continue on the same paved road or walk on the adjacent lawn. Following the signs for Rifugio Elena you will reach the first stage of the tour, from which many variations start. Choose a numbered path and follow the signs.
