Overview

Book
The Tour du Mont Blanc is one of the world's classic walks, and mindful of the adventurous families out there who want to enjoy some of the world's best walks together we have created this itinerary especially for families with children who want to walk the Tour du Mont Blanc. Meeting in Chamonix, the Alpine mountaineering capital, we begin our journey through 3 countries, France, Italy and Switzerland to complete the best parts of the Mont Blanc circuit. After a day's introductory walk up to lovely Lac Blanc, we return to our very comfortable chalet-style accommodation for a second night. We spend the next 5 days trekking our mini-tour, starting the walk from the door of our chalet. Our route includes several famous pass crossings including the Col de Balme, Col du Forclaz and the Grand Col Ferret (2537m). Along the way we'll see alpine cows, mountain farms, some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe and spend a night at the Bonatti Hut (2056m), newly erected in memory of the Italian mountaineer and photographer Walter Bonatti. All other accommodation will be in simple but comfortable hotels and there's no need to carry heavy bags as our baggage will be transported from accommodation to the next. An excellent introduction to multi-day walking!

Everything was great - highlights would have to be the Bonatti Hut which everyone thought was the high point (almost literally!) of the holiday. I would especially like to express thanks for the fantastic meals my coeliac/vegetarian daughter received as we were led to believe this might be a problem but everyone made a huge effort and her meals were excellent everywhere we went.

Our guide/leader was absolutely fantastic. She was so patient with us and our children. Her enthusiasm for the mountains was certainly infectious and her knowledge was boundless - tested fully by the children. This must be our best family holiday yet. We all really enjoyed the experience and there was no complaining from anyone. I must credit our guide with enabling this holiday to run so smoothly. The holiday was much much better than we expected - the standard of hotels and accommodation was far better than implied in the itinerary.
