In June 2019 Sam Armstrong and Julia Tregaskis-Allen will be celebrating their 10th Nordic Walking holiday together. The venue is back where it all began: the Alpine valley of Chamonix. We do hope that you will be able to join us.

We meet in Chamonix, the mountaineering capital of the world, and begin a journey of discovery which takes in the history, culture, folklore and wildlife of the mountains. From remote farms and refuges, to ancient Roman towns and beautiful lakeside mountain villages – it’s all here!

At the end of each day relax and soak up the Alpine environment in our traditional French mountain hotel perfectly situated at the foot of the famous Glacier des Bossons.
