This Tour du Mont Blanc is one of the most beautiful itineraries in the Alps. In fact, it’s a journey around the mythical Mont Blanc, moving from hut to hut.

During this tour, you will get the chance to contemplate summits, needles and glaciers in an incredibly high mountain environment. It’s the perfect place to get away from your hectic daily life, with unbeatable views. Besides, you will reconnect with nature and the mountain.

Leaving from Les Houches, in France, we will see the beautiful Miage glaciers and cross the Bonhomme pass and Seigne pass. Then we will cross to Italy on day 4, where we sleep at the Bonatti refuge. The third country is, of course, Switzerland, where we spend two nights. Finally, we return to the French side and our trip ends in Argentière. For more details, please check the itinerary below.
