Description

This 8-day Mont Blanc trekking tour is a great option to admire this amazing mountain during summer.

So I offer you to go all around the Mont Blanc (4808 m) to enjoy it from every angle. And to do so we’ll walk through 3 different countries: France, Italy and Switzerland!

Mont Blanc is the highest and, perhaps, most emblematic mountain of the Alps. During this tour we’ll see lots of glaciers and peaks over 4000 m. And although it seems like a complex hike, it is meant for everybody who’s use to walk in the mountains. Indeed it’s not a technical route and it doesn’t go very high to avoid altitude sickness.

Therefore, for almost 100 km, and a total of 13.000 metres of altitude gain, we’ll enjoy a unique scenery. We’ll stay in cozy mountain huts and I’ll show you the secrets of this amazing alpine area.

So if you feel like trying this 8-day Mont Blanc trekking tour, please contact me. And don’t hesitate to specify all your needs, so I can prepare the perfect trip for you and your group.
