Tour description

Todays trail leads us to Bourg-Saint-Pierre, more or less close to the Dranse d´Entremont. This will be the last break before we reach the alpine pass Grand-St-Bernard. Like the previous day, the steepest part of this section is at the beginning. Once we have reached Montatuay, the trail gets flater and hiking becomes less strenuous.
The more we climb, the less water will flow in the Dranse d´Entremont. Shortly after Orsières, the inflow of the Dranse de Ferret will be missing, and just before Liddes, we will cross another inflow with the long name of «A», or to make it clearer, with the full name of «Torrent de L´A» named after the valley «Come de L´A». Once we have reached Liddes, it´s only a good hour left to reach Bourg-Saint-Pierre.


Note(s)

The «Via Francigena» is one of the 3 main christian pilgrimage trails of the Middle Ages, the main axis leading from Canterbury to Rome. This documentation currently covers the stretch from Pontarlier close to the F/CH border across Lausanne to Rome.
