Hiking at the bottom of the Val Ferret between Switzerland and Italy.
Challenging 6 hour hike crossing the Petit and Grand Cols Ferret as well as magnificent spaces in a valley bottom.
Best period to go there
From La Fouly, join the small hamlet of Les Granges, then turn right towards the Gîte de la Léchère. Continue your ascent towards the Petit Col Ferret. Once you have crossed the border, follow the ridge of the Italian side and then pass behind the Tête de Ferret to reach the Grand Col Ferret. The descent then takes the same route as the Tour du Mont-Blanc. Take advantage of a break at the La Peule mountain pasture before returning to your starting point via a path on the hillside.
