From the end of May through the month of July, the mountains and valleys of the Haute Savoie and Rhone Alps region are extravagantly lush with a rainbow of vibrantly coloured and softly scented flowering plants, herbs, bushes and trees.

A DIFFERENT VIEW provides specialised botanical discovery day trips in the Chamonix Valley for individuals and small groups of 6 people.

» Alpine flora in different mountain environments (forest, wild meadows, marsh, prairie land and rock slopes).
» The recognition and utilisation of the various alpine plants.
» Wildlife habitat of the different indigenous and introduced animals
» Haute Savoie mountain environment: living conditions for plants, animals and humans
» Geology of the region.
» Learning about the return of wolves to the French Northern Alps.
» Tasting of local food specialities and herbal tea.

Examples of the tours we offer during June and July in the Chamonix region are described below. We also offer similar tours in the Lac Annecy region.

The destination of the Botanical Tours can vary, as your guide has the expert knowledge of knowing where ‘the best area for flowers’ can be at any time of the season. We keep you informed and plan according to your interests.
