Highlights

 
  • Discover the famous Tour of Mont Blanc.

  • Gaze at the amazing panoramic views.

  • Visit lovely villages and stay in cozzy cottages.

 

The Mont Blanc massif is a perfect place for hiking during 4 days in the very well known Tour of Mont Blanc, from Courmayeur to Champex and enjoy, with friends or family, of some of the most beautiful scenery in the Alps.

At 4807 m of altitude, the emblematic Mont-Blanc will be our thread on this hike from the resort Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley, Italy. For 4 days we will be crossing Val Ferret, in Italy and Switzerland, to meet, finally, Champex village, at the end of our tour.

From the Italian shelters facing the Grandes Jorasses, until the Grand Col Ferret in the borderline between Italy and Switzerland, we will find amazing nature. After crossing to Switzerland, there will be lots of small villages, which we will discover together until we arrive at the Champex glacial lake, when our tour finishes.

Each day, we will hike for 6 or 7 hours.

We will stay in refuges and cottages, typical in the Mont Blanc massif, lovely places to enjoy together of evenings and having good times, far away from our everyday troubles and concerns.

I will allow up to 10 people with me. If your group were more numerous, I would ask an attendant partner (also certified by UIMLA) to come with us.

I invite you to contact me if you would like to take this unique hike around Mont Blanc. We would plan the tour together, on the most convenient date for you. It would be a great pleasure that you join me on these beautiful trails and to be able to share with you my love for the mountain and its terrific places.

I also invite you to enjoy hiking around Gran Saint Bernard on this 6-day program.

About the Guide

 
 

UIMLA Mountain Leader and Trail runner
I discovered mountain hiking at a young age with my parents, visiting different refuges in the Alps and in my region. When I was 12 years old I got my first race bike, and a beautiful adventure started where I discovered a fascinating universe. Cycling became a huge passion and I traveled more and more kilometers discovering my region. I increased distances and when I was 16 years old I would take 150-200km trips in the mountain.
At 17, I decided to take a rather crazy challenge: the Tour du Mont-Blanc in 1 day in road bike (320km and 8000m+). I rode a lot during those years and I participated in some cyclosportives during the summer. Trail remained unknown to me. In 2005, I was a volunteer in the UTMB and I thought that all those trailers were a bit crazy. The next years, the CCC was created, and since I was too young to participate I helped my brother.
I decided to start in trail in 2007 with the CCC and I trained only for cycling. The race went quite well and I took a big step towards the race of all races, I planned the UTMB for 2008.
I started to get more and more into trail and to enjoy more and more running in the mountain during the summer. I participated in many trails to get prepared to the UTMB. The initial 60km of the Mont Blanc were a true suffering with gastric problems, but I managed to finish the race. I needed to try it again in 2009 to prove myself. This race was like a dream, and I arrived 27th at Chamonix.
I got more and more invested in this sport, and after the UTMB of course I dreamed of the Grand Raid in the Reunion Island! I ran and arrived 15th in 2010 after an UTMB truncated by bad weather conditions.
But returning from Reunion, I started thinking about a new incredible race: Tor des Géants!
During 2011, because of a professional change, I could dedicate more time to my favourite sport and I could improve a lot during a great season, having been the winner of Tor des Géants, which is considered the hardest on foot endurance test in the world.
Currently, I practice ski-alpinism in winter, and my summers are dedicated to trail, with a lot of bike-trail mixed trainings. The objectifs remain the same, to
go beyond my own limits and to discover the mountains! I can also share my passions by teaching ski in winter and being mountain leader in summer, as well as supervising trail stages around Mont-Blanc or diverse hikes.
