Overview

Book
The Tour des Combins is a relatively new long distance path which describes a complete walking circuit of one of the most famous peaks in the Alps, the Grand Combin (4314m). Over 6 days of walking we travel through high Alpine meadows where edelweiss grows and climb up beside one of the largest glaciers in Europe, the Glacier de Corbassiere. Above this glacier we reach the Col du Grand St Bernard and the monastery which became famous for the dogs who would go out in wild conditions with a barrel of brandy strapped to their collars to find lost mountaineers. A great alternative walking holiday to the Tour du Mont Blanc, the beauty of this circuit around the Combin is that so few people are walking it - at the moment! Be one of the first to complete this new trekking circuit and enjoy sensational mountain scenery without the crowds.

Highlights

    • Quiet and unspoilt Alpine wilderness walking holiday
    • Walking beside the immense Glacier de Corbassiere
    • Stay at the famous Grand St Bernard Monastery
    • A much quieter alternative to walking the Tour du Mont Blanc

Very well organised as ever. The huts were wonderful and the trails quiet. This is a beautiful trek. We barely saw anyone else the whole way round. Food in the evenings was always plentiful and the picnic lunches surprisingly large. Plenty of time in the late afternoons to relax. Our guide was a fantastic guide and very responsive to the needs of the group. 4 days of great Alpine weather, 2 days of intermittent rain. Do take a world wide charger as you can charge phones/batteries in the huts the whole way round(3 pin Swiss adaptor needed). The outdoor shower at the Panossière has a view of the glacier to die for.

Fantastic route through stunning mountains. The organisation of every aspect of the trip was excellent. Our superb guide, always got us to the days' mountain huts - all set in spectacular locations - by mid afternoon, and where available we even had stops for morning coffee and cake. They carried a huge camera to record everything scenic and memorable, from steep paths and animals to food and lovely mountain plants. She was also a very helpful companion. The joys of this trek are too numerous to mention and will be a fund of enduring happy memories for me.
