Via Francigena (Montreux/Lake Geneva-St.Bernard Pass-Aosta)
The historic self-guided hiking route Via Francigena crosses the most scenic parts of England, France and Switzerland just to reach the Eternal city (Rome)! Magnificent web of mountain paths, mule tracks, rural and secondary roads surrounded by cypress trees and majestic pines! A walking journey for a lifetime! Take an independent hiking tour to one of the most spectacular parts of the route located in Switzerland. The start will be marked with the calming blue waters of Lake Geneva where the mighty snow-covered peaks of Valais Alps and Chillon Castle come into sight. The beginning of this part of Via Francigena will be smooth and peaceful but soon the landscape will change into narrow paths and rough steep terrains that lead to the Great St. Bernard and the border with Italy. The self-guided hiking adventure will finish with a descent into the valley along old irrigation channels to the famous mountain village of Aosta – a home of rich history and dynamic modern life!
