Col de Balme hiking
Further informationDogs are not permitted as the path is in the Nature Reserve Les Aiguilles Rouges.
Due to work on the Tour/Charamillon side, the Balme area can only be discovered from the village of Vallorcine. The cable car takes you a few minutes to the Col des Posettes.
From there, the hikers will be able to stroll in the mountain pastures and to join the pass of Balme by the marked out path in one hour of walk. Fabulous view on the Mont-Blanc and Aiguilles Rouges massifs.
More information available at the Tourist Office or the High Mountain Office and in our trail guide.
