Description

The final day of the Transalp starts like most of the other days, with a big, big climb! First you will meet a junction that leads the Fenetre du Durant before climbing up to 2800m.

At the top of the climb, you will be greeted by an epic panorama of surrounding snow-capped peaks.

Then you'll continue on to descend steeply, crossing a stream along the way before leaving the trail for asphalt road for the final stretch into the beautiful Roman town of Aosta.

Aosta is one of the many jewels of the northwestern Italian Alps.

When you’re fully rested and full of the delicious piedmont cuisine, jump on the bus back to Lucerne, which takes roughly two hours.
