This splendid valley runs from the foot of Mont Blanc on towards Col Ferret, the pass that leads over into Switzerland. Along the left side of the valley are some of the loftiest, most magnificent peaks in the Alps: the Dente del Gigante, the Grandes Jorasses, the Aiguille de Triolet and Mont Dolent, while the slopes of Mont de La Saxe on the right are considerably less forbidding. The views here are spectacular all year round.
In the summer, mountain lovers will find a huge choice of routes available to them, from walks up to the mountain huts to high-altitude trekking trips and challenging mountaineering routes. The valley also boasts a nine-hole golf course and mountain bike trails, as well as offering the opportunity to try activities such as angling or even just to enjoy the view from the valley bottom as you relax outside the local bars and restaurants.
In winter, the Val Ferret offers cross-country skiing fans 20 km of slopes with great snow right up towards the end of spring.
