A wonderful adventure for family and friends to discover the most beautiful views of Mont Blanc, along with a certified mountain leader in the Happy Tracks team.
Hiking to Lac Blanc, one of the wonders of Chamonix valley.
Climbing to the Alpage de Bovine, and enjoying the view over the Rhône Valley.
Hiking across the Balme Pass, with an extraordinary view of Mt Blanc.
Join me on a wonderful adventure for the complete family, or to come alogn with friends! This program will take us on a 5-day hiking tour to the beautiful area of Mont Blanc, across French, Italian and Swiss territory.
The Tour du Mont Blanc hike – also known as the TMB – is a great opportunity to spend time with your friends and family, and even your children, in a natural and magical environment.
During these days, I will teach you all about this area, its mountains, its fauna and flora, and its history. Also, we will stay overnight in refuges, far away from everything. In sum, it’s a truly rewarding and fun plan!
The average hiking time per day is around 7 hours. And the altitude change ranges from 1,000 m to 1,200 m.
One of the highlights of this program is the visit to The Blanc Lake. This lake is well-known for the incredible view of the Mont-Blanc it offers, especially through its reflection on the water surface.

You can choose the program that best suits you. I offer different options.
To begin this program, one option is to meet at Chamonix. We can then transfer to Courmayeur by bus to start hiking. Have a look at a detailed suggested itinerary below (the “Demi-tour du Mont-Blanc – Courmayeur – Chamonix”).
At the end of the program, we will cross the Flégère and descend back to Chamonix.
Another option is to start the hike in Chamonix with direction to the Houches and finalize in Courmayeur, where we can take the bus to return to Chamonix.
For those who have limited time in the valley, we can do the Mont-Blanc tour in parts by bus and walking through the most beautiful places.

The tour was fantastic and it was made even better because of our guide, Raphael. He was incredibly nice and helpful while telling us funny and cool stories and facts! LOVED THE TOUR! RECOMMEND 10000000%
Raphael planned a wonderful trip that was well executed! Great hikes, great food, great hotels! So we enjoyed his fellow guide, Jack, who was very helpful and friendly. Overall, a great experience! Would highly recommend!
Our 5 day tour du Mont Blanc is one of the most amazing experiences of my life. My wife and I were among a group of friends that consisted of 22 from the USA. Our group consisted of mostly 55-65 aged individuals, and we requested private lodging for the trip. The logistics were perfect, with assistance from Geneva to Chamonix. Our guides, Raphael and Jack, always looked out for our safety during snow and water crossings, and provided for our comfort throughout the hikes. Our evenings were excellent and the meals at local hotels and restaurants were excellent. I highly recommend Happy Tracks for their skill, preparation and planning, and friendliness.
Happy Tracks came highly reccommended to our group. They did not disappoint. Raphael, Jack Anja & Rachel took great care and pride in providing the best hiking experience on the TMB.
Happy Tracks offer the best service in the world! Our leader the power house woman Anja was amazing. She went beyond her call of duty at times to ensure we had a super adventure on the Tour Du Mont Blanc. She was always one step ahead of us in terms of our needs. She is passionate about what she does and therefore it comes naturally to her to excel in offering a great service.

We had an excellent time with Anja in the TMB!!! The best guide! Thank you!!!!
The hike was absolutely wonderful. Anja was a great guide who kept sharing lots of information about the region while we were hiking. She was kind enough to accommodate our food restrictions and brought us wonderful homemade lunches and snacks every day. She ensured our hike was full of different grades of difficulty so we never got bored and learnt a lot. It was an amazing experience and we would definitely recommend Anja to everyone!!!
Had an excellent time on an adventurous tour du Mont Blanc out of season, only possible thanks to Raphael and Anja!! Not only guiding us all the way, but being a great company along the way and cooking delicious meals even in mountain huts!! Thank you so much! Wish you all the best!
