This is a unique opportunity to traverse the massif of the Bornes / Aravis / Tournette mountain range. The route which can be hiked in 7 days, but we run over 4, follows a 360 degree loop starting on the northern part of the Aravis range. The distance of around 75 miles and cumulative ascent of nearly 8000m makes for a tough challenge but also extremely rewarding, taking you into a unique limestone landscape which takes in high mountain trails as well as wooded valley routes. The area is famous for historical events for the part played by the French Resistance in World War II. Today it offers quiet mountain trails with small local farms selling cheese and wine, and a few tourists who mainly are found in the small ski areas dotted on the route. We start just below the highest point on the Aravis Chain, Pointe Perceé (2750m), then looping south to reveal stunning views of the Mont Blanc Massif with its glistening glaciers and lofty rocky needles. Next is the traverse of the Col des Aravis which featured in both the 2016 Tour de France Étape as well as final tour stage. Further along the trail on the second day there are views towards the large ski areas such Les Arcs and Val d'Isere. The last sections offer amazing views towards Lake Annecy and Annecy town, known as the Venice of France. A few more hills climbed and you finish back where you started, a truly incredible achievement.
