Dents Blanches Tour
This route crosses the administrative border between Haute-Savoie and Valais. This demarcation line is completely relative bearing in mind the friendly ties that have existed between the two alpine peoples for centuries. Given this situation, the Dents Blanches Tour is a superb hike, on which urban and rural mountain dwellers are plunged into the heart of a dizzying chain of summits with stunning landscapes, welcoming rest stops, legends and traditions that will transport and amaze the most blasé of mountaineers.
Duration of hike: 4-6 days
