The Col de la Seigne lies high above the Refuge des Mottets on the border between France and Italy. Follow the trail as it descends to Refuge Elisabetta, and onto La Visaille.
The Col de la Seigne (2516 m) and lies a steep 750 m above the Refuge des Mottets and is where you leave France for Italy. Just wait until you see the view! Stupendous! The steep southern side of the Mont Blanc Massif, made up of jagged peaks, hanging glaciers and plunging waterfalls, seems close enough to touch. The trail descends through high alpine meadows past refuge Elisabetta into the Val Veni.
From here, you continue past the snout of the huge Glacier du Miage to Visaille, where you can catch the shuttle bus into Courmayeur, or continue to walk on valley trails to Courmayeur.
