TOUR DU MONT BLANC TRIP OVERVIEW
"Mont Blanc is the monarch of mountains; They crowned him long ago on a throne of rocks, in a robe of clouds, with a diadem of snow."
- Lord Byron
The Tour du Mont Blanc hiking circuit around Mont Blanc, western Europe's highest mountain, is the perfect mix of awe-inspiring mountain views and the
vibrant influence of three distinct European countries – France, Italy, and Switzerland. The hiking route leads us between small alpine villages, over
moutainous passes, and along ancient glaciers as we travel through the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps.
Our expert guides lead us from village to
village as we dip down into a new valley each day and savor changes in language, landscape, architecture, and cuisine. Our cultural delights range from
the French resort town of Chamonix, to the medieval city of Courmayeur, Italy, to quaint alpine villages in Switzerland where we enjoy delicious and
hearty meals of local specialties.
HOW WE DO IT DIFFERENTLY
We partner with local companies to transfer your bags from one inn to the next, so all you need on the trail is a daypack and a hiker's spirit. We
avoid shared bath accommodations wherever possible, and do not stay in dormitory-style rooms; instead we choose charming alpine properties that provide
great meals and relaxation. Our renowned local guides know how to make the most out of a day on the trail (and a gourmet picnic lunch), introducing you
to the grandeur of the Mont Blanc region.
