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. 

And you can also check out these other hiking options: Carros de Foc guided trekking tour or 8-day Mount Cervino hiking tour.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
