If you’ve been delaying forever your first trip to the Alps, consider this your cue. When the temperatures dip, the Alps transform into a true winter wonderland, creating the perfect setting for an all-women retreat. A great way to fully experience the magic is to snowshoe your way along the foothills of Mont Blanc, on the Italian side. The 3-day journey offers the perfect balance between effort and relaxation, simplicity and luxury in the company of like-minded ladies. Not only will you enjoy pristine white vistas surrounding you, but marvelous spas and delectable dishes at the end of the day as well. And, well, an Aperol Spritz or two, in a cozy bathrobe. Because, why not.

Itinerary

Snow-carpeted peaks, frosty fir trees, and crisp Alpine air is the perfect setting for a 3-day getaway into the great outdoors. Join an expert guide, who knows the Alps by heart, and let them take you on a snowshoeing tour along the foothills of the mighty Mont Blanc massif. One night is spent at the legendary Bonatti Hut, the other at the 4* Mountain Resort QC Termemontebianco. You don’t have to worry about the food, your guide will make sure you get the best Italian Alpine meals—your only job is to admire spectacular views and explore the wonderful Alps.

  • Make your way to the charming hamlet of Entrèves at the foot of Mont Blanc, just a couple of miles away from Courmayeur. Meet your guide and your team and start the hike to the comfortable Bonatti Hut, one of the nicest ones in the Alps. Ease into snowshoeing with a nice and gentle warm-up—follow a semi-frozen river surrounded by majestic peaks such as the Grandes Jorasses. Only when you reach the forest does the ascent get more sustained. Leave the forest behind you (at 2,000 m) and enjoy views over the Mont Blanc and other impressive peaks of the Aosta Valley. Once in the hut, have delicious mulled wine or cold beer. Dinner is cooked with locally sourced ingredients.

    Meals: Lunch and dinner
    Accommodation: Bonatti Hut

    Happy hikers snowshoeing
  • If weather serves you, you can opt for a detour and ascend the Col d’Entre-Deux-Sauts mountain pass. The other option is heading straight back to civilization and getting the most out of your stay in your luxe accommodation for the night: a 4-star hotel with a wellness center on the slopes of Mont Blanc. Pamper yourself after a day out in the snow and perhaps treat yourself to a massage or an Aperol Spritz.

    Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
    Accommodation: 4-star Mountain Resort QC Termemontebianco in Pré-Saint-Didier

  • After a delicious breakfast (you can even make your own smoothie at the hotel!), head to Arpy. From there, hike up to the picture-perfect mountain lake of glacial origin. Along the way you will get to appreciate beautiful views of the valley and likely meet some wild animals. After lunch in superb winter ambiance, it’s time to say goodbye to this short and sweet trip. Say your farewells with the guide and your team and head to the airport. If you’d like to stay longer in the area, just ask your guide for some recommendations!

Famke van der Elst
Thanks to her parents, Famke has been spending time in the mountains since a very early age—she was even selected in the Young Netherlands Ski Team! Though Famke soon realized that competitive skiing isn’t for her, she kept on skiing and exploring the mountains with her friends. There’s nothing nicer for her in the world than setting off for a hike with her friends, her dog, and a delicious picnic, which inspired her to sign up for the International Mountain Leader training course in Switzerland. Having completed the course in 2018, Famke’s been taking other travelers to explore the Alps. Whether it’s snowshoeing, trekking, wildcamping, backpacking, or hiking, Famke is happy to show you the beauty of the Alps!

A super mountain guide who can guide you around the mountains safely. Olle, her dog was very welcoming to my dog too when we both joined for a Thursday morning hike. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice way to spend time in nature

Nienke Veerstra (source: Facebook)

Famke is a very well prepared guide, who adjust the trip / tour to the level and condition of her guests. She is a pleasent company with a no-nonsense attitude and her very sweet and tough dog, Olle is really an addition to the company. Besides a nice hike through a fantastic environment, you can have good conversations, or just enjoy the silence and maybe (as in our case) encouter a gems or deer!

Thanks to Famke, we had a fantastic hike in the snow. We even saw our favorite mountain goat, the Chamois!

Hiking is about you, nature and hopefully someone else who loves being out as much as you do. Famke loves what she does… and you can tell. I would recommend hiking with her to anyone who’s interested in connecting with the overwhelming beauty of nature. Also… hiking is just a great way of meeting nice people. Thanks a lot Famke! See you soon!
