Come enjoy the stunning view of the highest massif in the Alps with a 6-day hiking tour through France, Italy and Switzerland. After guiding the Tour du Mont Blanc several times on the north side of the massif, this time I propose you to join me on this Tour du Mont Blanc Sud, along the south side of this impressive group of mountains.

We will be hiking on good mountain trails over passes and valleys, staying  in alpine huts and in simple hotels, marveling ourselves at the increasingly prominent mountain peaks surrounding us. This is a tour with an international flair, covering three different countries, with spectacular mountain panorama views you will surely remember for a long time!
