INSPIRE YOURSELF – After months of being cooped up in our little flat, holiday destinations which offer vast landscapes and adventure are high on our agenda. We’re also keen to consider locations which are a little closer to home, whether that be in the UK or Europe.
Our first ever holiday together was in The Alps. We both love outdoor activities, whether that is trail running, cycling or sunrise treks. After some research we discovered Courmayeur Mont Blanc, a gorgeous destination in The Alps offering holiday opportunities for adventure seekers in both the summer and winter.
We love the Alps and always have – often associated with snow and ski holidays, it is also a great location for loads of outdoor activities against incredible backdrops.
There is something that makes Courmayeur a unique place on the sunny side of the Alps: its position at the foot of the Mont Blanc.
With its car-free cobbled streets, local-run hotels, charming atmosphere, short transfer times and the superb offering of hiking, biking and fresh air, it’s no surprise that Courmayeur Mont Blanc is already a firm favourite among mountain-lovers, many of whom return year after year.
There are many other reasons that turn this location into one of the most beloved ski and holiday resorts in Italy, both in winter and in summer. We’re excited to share these with you below.
The Tour du Mont Blanc is one of the most thrilling MTB trails in Europe: in a few days to travel through more than 200 kilometers through 3 different countries (Italy, Switzerland and France), immersed in one of the most astounding views of the Alps.
Treks with a view
In Courmayeur Mont Blanc you will get to conquer the highest peak of the Alps, or lower peaks if you prefer. In both cases, the many mountain trails, such as The Balcony of Mont Blanc, will make you reach incredible viewpoints and mountain refuges to explore the beautiful nature of Aosta Valley in summer.
The highest Alpine outdoor heated pool
The Alpine heated swimming pool of Plan Chécrouit provide a different type of break for Tour du Mont Blanc trekkers. Dive into the heart of the Alps at 1,704 m of altitude, swimming in the highest outdoor heated pool of Europe gazing upon the summit of The Mont Blanc.
