How to reach us

The Saussurea Alpine Gardens are in Courmayeur, in Pavillon du Mont Fréty, location of the first station of the Skyway Mont Blanc cable cars. Audacious visitors may choose to reach the Gardens on foot, following a trail roughly 2.5 kilometers long. The trail begins near the Skyway station and reaches Pavillon after a long and pleasant walk, first through the woods and then across a meadow
