A memorable day sees you climbing out of Courmayeur, along the flanks of Mont de la Saxe, and onto Rifugio Bonatti.
Distance 12.3 km
In good weather the walk from Courmayeur to Refugio Bonatti is guaranteed to be one of the most memorable of your Tour du Mont Blanc trek. After a steep climb from Courmayeur, the main route contours around the flank of Mont de la Saxe on an undulating path giving you plenty of time to take in the dramatic icy panorama of the Mont Blanc Massif and Grand Jorasses across the valley. Refugio Bonatti, the crème de la crème of alpine refuges, marks the end of your day.
