Great Cafés of the Alps
July 25 - August 1
If you love trail running, and want to enjoy a café au lait and blueberry tart along the way, we’ve got the trip for you. We’ll explore the trails of Chamonix, France and Zermatt, Switzerland, while taking breaks at the best cafés en route.
Over the years, we’ve enjoyed many stops at these great cafés, sampling the local cuisine. Now, we’ve assembled some of our very favorite mountain cafés into a unique trip that features great trail running– and great food and drink, too! Our trip takes in two of the iconic mountain towns of the Alps: Chamonix, France, and Zermatt, Switzerland. We’ll get a feel for the French culture of this Savoyard region before moving on to the Swiss-German cuisine of Zermatt.
Run the Alps will reserve tables at mountain cafés along each day’s route, so tables will be waiting for us when we arrive. We’ll also do our best to make sure that the desserts and lunches for which each café is known will be ready for us!
