Discover hut to hut hiking in the Alps of Switzerland, France and Italy. Well-marked trails of the Alps take you along lush mountain meadows, past aqua colored lakes and receding glaciers, up and over mountain passes with spectacular snow capped mountain views and eventually lead you to the days final destination - your mountain hut.
Unlike most long distance mountain treks in the US, hiking through the mountains of the Alps means a lighter backpack. Thanks to the mountain huts you don’t have to carry your overnight accommodations. The huts provide warm showers, home-cooked 3-course dinners, a bed, as well as breakfast the next morning and a sack lunch for that day’s hike.
Come learn the ins and outs of these mountain huts as well as what the trails are like that lead you to them. The talk will focus on the trails and mountain huts of the Tour de Mont Blanc and the Haute Route.
