On this stage, Via Alpina mainly uses the GR® du Tour de pays du Mont-Blanc. It crosses the Aiguilles Rouges nature reserve to reach the Brévent pass before descending again on the Chamonix side to the Planpraz chalets and continuing as a balcony trail facing the Mont Blanc massif until arriving at the Flégère chalet, the stage destination.

    Für die Strecke von Planpraz nach La Flégère benötigten wir 1 3/4 Std., also deutlich länger, als im Wanderführer angegeben.

    Refuge La Flegere is a huge hut. (E 56 Demi-pension). Try to arrive early and lie back in one of the comfortable chairs and have a fantastic view on the Mont Blanc.

    La Flegere is not a village, just ski lifts and touristic restaurant available there, good shelter if bad weather, probably possible to crash overnight in the sanitary if needed :-)

    La flegere - Refuge Moede Anterne took me 4h15 with light rain, heavy fog, snow

    refuge Moede Anterne offers :
    16euros for a bed..must pay 2 extras euros for shower
    Half board is 45euros...not good not bad.

    Paid 8euros for a taste less big plate of spaghettis bolognese

    Radther than having the guest comfortable they will put maximum persons in the same dormitory (this is order to not clean an extra dormitory)... On the menu they can charge you 1euros for hot water (when i got there they did not charge me for hot water)

    Staying in regfuge Moede Anterne and you are not a guest..just another tourist

    the time to go from Planpraz to La Flegere is underestimated - local signs suggest 2 hours. I couldn't make it in 1 hour and I've never been slower than the times indicated.
