The Restart Alpine Three Peak Challenge is back in 2022! That's right, 3 peaks in 3 countries in 3 days - over 3,000 meters!

Included will be three full days of trekking through the beautiful mountains of Italy, Switzerland and Chamonix before returning to the 5* luxury chalet each evening to rest and reboot before the next day of adventure. The challenge provides the perfect blend of tough, grizzled experience with luxury relaxation & celebration for a group of adventurous friends or colleagues.

As an addition to the trip you will be joined by rugby legend, Damian Hopley and another former professional rugby player. So, keep your eyes peeled and ears to the ground for news on which player will be taking part in the challenge...!

We are working with the CHX team of mountain experts for this event who have designed the routes to be challenging but accessible and achievable for everyone. Although this challenge requires no technical mountaineering experience, a good level of fitness is required for the demanding routes, though CHX staff will be on hand to guide and provide support throughout.

THE ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrive in Chamonix in the evening for welcome drinks and snacks while we settle in to the chalet and run through the next two days, before heading to bed for a good night’s sleep.

Day 2:  Breakfast and travel to Courmayeur, Italy to hike high above Val Veny and Val Ferret. This trek offers views of the dramatic, ridges of Mont Blanc as well as beautiful trails below the Miage Glacier. A likely summit would be Testa Bernarda (2,534 metres). A long descent takes us back to Courmayeur, before returning to the chalets in Chamonix for some rest and relaxation before dinner together.

Day 3: An early start to take in a summit in Switzerland, likely to be Bel Oiseau (2,652 metres) standing twice the height of Ben Nevis and overlooking the pristine waters of Lac Emosson with views to Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.

Day 4: Departing the chalet for the final day in the Chamonix Valley, we will trek on the Aiguilles Rouges with Mont Blanc right in front of us. We will summit Aiguillette des Posettes (2,323 metres), have lunch and descend back to the valley and return to the chalet for a celebratory meal and drinks together in the evening

Day 5: Breakfast together & depart Chamonix to head home.
