We start from the small village of La Tour at the end of the Chamonix Valley and take the gondola to the mid station. From here a good path zig zags uphill before reaching the Col de Balme on the French Swiss border.

After a short stop to admire the breathtaking view of Mont Blanc, Aiguilles Verte and Drus we head for the gentle summits of Arolette and Tete de Balme before dropping down to the Col de Posettes.

The Aiguillette des Posettes is the final climb of the day on a delightful path with stunning views. The summit is soon reached, a great place for lunch.
