Courmayeur lies at the foot of the enormous Mont Blanc massif and is the oldest Alpine resort in Val d’Aosta. Ever since the 19th century it has been regarded as the capital of mountaineering and Alpine walking. The village is surrounded by numerous hamlets which retain the typical architectural features of traditional houses. From the hamlet of Entrèves you gain access to the Mont Blanc Tunnel (length 11.6 km), a spectacular feat of engineering, which crosses Mont Blanc. Continuing on the route towards Val Ferret, you meet La Palud where the “Glacier ski-lift” departs. Along its six ski-lift sections, it allows visitors to reach Chamonix in the summer period. You then enter the Val Ferret, dominated by the Grandes Jorasses.
