Val Ferret is the name shared by two valleys separated by the Col Ferret, a pass on the border between Italy and Switzerland. The valleys lie southeast of Mont Blanc Massif. The Swiss valley drains northeast towards Orsières and on into the Rhône basin; whereas the Italian valley drains southwest towards Courmayeur and on into the Po basin.Add Val Ferret to your Courmayeur travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Courmayeur trip itinerary planning site.
