MONT BLANC - TREK
Experience the highest mountain in the Alps from our trek around Mont Blanc. The trek, designed to be unbelievably fun, cultural and doable, brings us to mountain villages in France, Italy, and Switzerland. Every day, we stay at a different bed and breakfast, experiencing the best hospitality of the Alps and getting away from the crowds. Hiking across mountain borders, campers only carry a small backpack with clothes for a few days, and we do laundry along the way. With mesmerizing views of glaciers, valleys, and Mont Blanc, this is an adventure that will not soon be forgotten!
FRENCH ALPS: WHITEWATER RAFT & ZIP LINE
After an incredible trek around Mont Blanc, Bold Earth campers spend the final days of Bold Alps in Chamonix, France. Located on the border of France, Italy, and Switzerland, Chamonix is a world-famous adventure town. Under the shadow of the Alps, we experience the best adventure activities! Starting with a zip-Line adventure, campers experience rappelling and zip-lining above a narrow canyon and above waterfalls. The next day, we whitewater raft, experiencing class 3-4 rapids on the adventure of a lifetime. To end the Bold Alps trip, we take a cable car ride to the top of the famous Aiguille du Midi, to experience incredible views of the Alps and of our accomplishments trekking around Mont Blanc!
