Stage 8: Saint-Maurice, Switzerland to Issogne, Italy

Difficulty rating: Hard

This is the hardest and possibly the most staggeringly beautiful week of the walk as it includes the climb up to 2,469m over the Great St Bernard Pass.

The week starts with one of our shortest walks along the Rhone Valley to the Alpine town of Martigny. From here we have a far harder climb up to Orsieres at 890m before heading up to Col-Grand-St Bernard the next day. The day’s walk finishes here before we come down over the pass to the ancient Roman city of Aosta the next day.

We continue down the stunning Aosta valley to Chatillon and finish the week at Issogne with its famous castle and wineries.
