We are a fit couple in our 60's. We are comfortable hiking in the Rockies, but we don't do technical.
We will be in the Alps for the month of September. We will fly in and out of Geneva, but also want to include the Dolomites.
Our plan is to spend a few days south of Geneva on day hikes to "get our legs," then do several multi-day high-altitude hut hikes, then wind up at lower altitudes as the high huts close. It would be ideal if a multi-day hike could land us in a small village where we could rest for the next multi-day hike, which would land us in the next, etc., as we work our way east.
Glaciers are of particular interest, and my husband (a geologist) is experienced walking on them, but I am not.
Public transport, of course, with minimal packs only. We prefer to avoid touristy locations. We prefer to interact with locals. We are on a limited budget.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
