If you are booked in a single room and eventually have to share a twin room, we will refund the difference of the single supplement for the relevant number of nights.

    On the last weekend of August (due to the UTMB), a supplement of €50 per night per person will apply for the night(s) in Chamonix. Also, a transfer (included) will be arranged to an available hotel in one of the nearby towns.
