When I think back about our Alpine Walking Holidays, there were some things that stood out for me.
Firstly was the amazing flora and fauna the French Alps has to offer.
In the summer the weather in Chamonix becomes more stable. We were lucky and got pretty much guaranteed sunshine on all the weeks.
Don’t forget the waterproofs though – this is the Alps after all.
Some mornings were so amazing, watching an electric storm striking the mountains around us.
It can be so changeable and it is definitely not boring.
That’s what Alpine Walking Holidays are all about.
On our slightly damper days Mike would take guests on a valley walk, the distant clang of cowbells is loved by all.
Black Squirrels, Redstarts and Alpine Choughs are always great to see, not forgetting some stunning alpine flowers.
