Running Holidays

Trail running holidays are another love of ours and the valley is blessed with hundreds of kilometres of trails to choose from – from meandering paths along the river, to high routes along the Grand Balcons – the options are limitless.

The Chamonix valley is also home to some of the best trail racing events anywhere on the globe and we love both training for them and racing them too.

From the Lodge, you can simply walk out of the door and explore some of the classic routes like the Tour du Mont Blanc or, just take a map and discover these magnificent mountains for yourself.
