We invite you to trek on one of the most classic Alpine routes, the Tour Du Mont Blanc, which goes through France, Switzerland, and Italy. This abbreviated “highlights” tour takes 7 days instead of the habitual 12, but you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the most beautiful parts of the Alps.

As we circle around Mont Blanc, one of Europe’s tallest mountains at 4,808 meters, we’ll go through picturesque alpine pastures, dense forests, high mountain passes with amazing views, and charming villages.

Some nights will be spent in nice 3 and 4 star hotels, and some in cozy mountain refuges. Luggage transfer is provided and you won’t have to forgo a hot shower anywhere you go. There will also be ample opportunities to try the delicious local cuisine.

Every day, having eaten a good breakfast, we’ll start hiking at 9am. We’ll eat a hearty packed lunch on the trail and finish hiking around 4-5pm. Then it’s time to relax at the accommodation, enjoy the mountain views, and have a 3-course dinner and hard-earned drink.

Book now to go on an unforgettable journey with a guide who will make sure you get the most out of this stunning region.

About the Guide

 
 

I am an UIMLA-certified Mountain Leader, working as a freelance international guide. I am passionate about the outdoors and I love guiding clients in different mountain environments. I am based in Chamonix, with the mountains on my doorstep, so I spend any spare time I have outside, mountaineering, rock climbing or swimming.

Along with guiding tours, I enjoy exploring new places and travelling to countries like Canada, New Zealand and Africa. I have a special love for the European Alps. The food, culture and landscape of the Italian Dolomites are my favorite!
