The Grand Traverse of the Alps is one of the most beautiful and personally rewarding treks in the world. The GR5, as it is also known, runs from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean along alpine slopes, lush pastures, mountain glaciers, & flower-filled French villages. With good food & warm camaraderie we plan to section hike the trail over two years: in 2016 from Lake Geneva to Modane, and in 2017 from Larche to Menton on the Mediterranean. We will hike every day with a typical altitude gain of 900m (3,000') and a distance of 16km (10 miles). Please join us for this experience of a lifetime.
