A trail for nature lovers. Come and enjoy this route which lies between France and Switzerland and used to be the route taken by the smugglers in the beginning of the 20th century. Discover this Franco-Swiss itinerary combining mountain paths and alpine passages on the limestone massif of the Dents Blanches overlooking the valley of Haut-Giffre in Haute-Savoie and Val d’Illiez in Valais.

The sudden change from the sweetness of the flowering mountain pastures to the wild beauty of the steep rock faces is marvellous. You will pass from one country to another, between Switzerland and France, without even realizing it. The various lodges, refuges and huts on this route will allow you to organize your trip for accomodation, meals or refreshments.
