hi ! we will be staying for 4 nights in courmayeur and 2 nights in cogne shortly(from end-june to early july), and would like to hear any advice on what to do.
i believe the cable car is available only to the torino hut, and for aigille du midi i need to climb up by a cable car from chamonix side. and i think at the pavillion on the way to the torino hut, there is a nice alpine flower garden which will be lovely. how about lago checroui? do we need to walk long from funivia? anything else not to be missed?
i made my senior mother walk so much in the dolomitis 2 years ago on so-called beginners' route, she loved the views but is unwilling to hike much.(maybe maximum 1 hour-90min a day? as we normally spend double the time marked required on posts...) are val ferret and val veny impossible for us? any possibility to take a bus to get close by?
in cogne, it seems possible to take bus to valnontey and walk around there, or bus to lilaz waterfalls?
i guess i should not be greedy, but near cervinia, there seems to be a lovely lake called lago blu..is it accessible from either town, or is it too complicated with public transport...?
has anyone taken any day tours with bus or van to cervinia/lago blu from courmayeur or cogne?
any suggestions for easy, short, level walks with nice views with public transport access would be highly appreciated.
thank you!! (of course, i understand the weather conditions may vary so we might not be able to do as much as we want in the end...)
