This traverse of the European alps starts at Menton on the Mediterranean coast and follows the French-Italian and then French-Swiss boarder hills to Lake Geneva. The route continues through the Swiss Alps crossing the Bernese Oberland and Bernina Alps before entering the Südtyrol. Here the journey traverses the Ortler range and the Dolomites to their north- eastern limit near the Austrian border. The final 11 days head South through the magnificent Veneto Dolomites to Vittorio-Veneto where the hills fall to the plain around Venice. This 82-day walk, undertaken by 5 BMRES members, covers 1500km with 107,00m ascent. Much of the route is off the beaten track. Sufficient detail is given for a reader to be able to complete the walk in manageable stages and find lodging and a meal each night.
