Complete Tour du Mont Blanc Trek
×

Highlights

  • Complete Europe's classic long distance trek
  • Superb mountain views at every turn of the trail
  • Three countries on one trek; France, Italy & Switzerland
  • Delicious meals featuring the local specialities of each country
  • Spectacularly located mountain refuges such as Refuge Lac Blanc

The Complete Tour du Mont Blanc starts and finishes in Les Houches and covers every step of this classic Alpine trek through France, Italy and Switzerland. For the serious walker with a sense of aesthetic there really is no other option for the Tour du Mont Blanc.

The Complete Tour du Mont Blanc includes every stage of the Tour du Mont Blanc. It begins with a steep climb from Les Houches, which immediately immerses you in the glaciers and rugged spires of Mont Blanc. You then follow the trail over Col de la Croix du Bonhomme and Col de la Seigne where you pass into Italy. The Col Chécrouit is the next highlight of the tour as continue through Italy via Cournayeur and Refugio Bonatti.

The ascent of Grand Col Ferret takes you into Switzerland and is followed by an easier day through the Swiss pastures to Champex. The next day’s walk to Trient via Alp Bovine gives sensational views of the Rhone Valley or you can choose the challenging variant via Fenetre d’ Arpette, a highlight of the Tour du Mont Blanc. You then head into the Aiguilles Rouges Nature Reserve to Lac Blanc, which perfectly frames Mont Blanc and is the perfect last night high in the mountains. The trail delivers a final flourish as it climbs to Le Brévent before descending back to Les Houches and your final overnight is in Chamonix. Bag transfer is included, allowing you to enjoy the walk unencumbered.

The Complete Tour du Mont Blanc is ideal if you want to complete the entire Tour de Mont Blanc, an experience filled with superlatives, which should be on any walkers “must do” list of treks. Although not for everyone, staying in mountain huts allows you to stay high in the mountains and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow TMB’ers, which is just one aspect of the trek which makes the Tour du Mont Blanc so special. If you would prefer more privacy then our Complete Tour du Mont Blanc in Comfort would be a better option.

Day 1: Arrive Les Houches

The pretty Alpine village of Les Houches is easily accessible by either train or shuttle from Geneva Airport in just over an hour. On arrival you can settle into your comfortable hotel, stroll through the town and get ready for your adventure on the Tour du Mont Blanc.


Dinner & Overnight: Chalet Hotel Les Campanules**, Les Houches



Enjoying wonderful views the 2 star Chalet Hotel Campanules punches well above its weight with great views, service and comfortable rooms.


or: Hotel Du Bois***, Les Houches


Enjoying a wonderful outlook the 3* Hotel du Bois offers comfortable rooms, great food and has a sauna and swimming pool.



DAY 2:
Les Houches - Bellevue (1801) – Les Contamines

Your trek starts with either a climb from Les Houches out of the Chamonix Valley to Bellevue(1801m) or a quick 10 minute ride on the Bellevue telepherique (1801m) where you join the Tour du Mont Blanc.


At Bellevue you have the option of taking the tough route via Chalet de Miage, which is dominated by the Dôme du Goûter and Aiguille de Bionnasay as you pass just beneath the snout of the Glacier de Bionnassay. After passing the idyllic Chalet de Miage you descend to Les Contamines.



The easier option winds through beautiful forests and through alpine pastures via Bionnassay to Les Contamines.


Walk via Bionnassay: 16km, 5 Hours, 646m Ascent, 633m Descent


Walk via Chalets de Miage: 18km, 7.5 Hours, 1478m ascent, 1318m descent


Optional Cable Car: Reduces both routes by 2 hours and 900m of ascent.


Dinner & Overnight: Hotel Christiania**, Les Contamines


Located on the main street this traditional 2* hotel is the perfect base in Les Contamines. (Twin room)


Day 3: Les Contamines - Col Bonhomme (2329m) -  Les Chapieux or Refuge des Mottets

Leaving Les Contamines the path turns upwards and climbs steadily on the Chemin Roman through the Contamines Montjoie Nature Reserve towards the distant Col du Bonhomme. A steady climb reveals increasingly rugged views of the high peaks and you quickly reach the rugged landscapes of the Col du Bonhomme (2329 m). A further hour on rough and rocky ground brings up the Col de la Croix du Bonhomme.


If you are staying in Les Chapieux you descend past the spectacularly located Refuge Col de la Croix du Bonhomme all the way to the valley below. Those staying at Refuge des Mottets have the choice of either descending to Les Chapieux and then catching the shuttle to Les Mottets or connoisseurs will love the climb to the Col des Fours (2665m), which promises clear views of Mont Blanc before descending into the remote and beautiful Valle des Glaciers.


Walk to Les Chapieux: 12km, 1050m Ascent, 950m Descent, 7 – 8 Hours.


Walk to Refuge des Mottetts via Col des Fours: 14km, 1300m Ascent, 950m Descent, 7.5 - 8 Hours. 


Dinner & Overnight: Either Auberge de La Nova 


The friendly and comfortable Auberge de la Nova serves a great beer and even better grub. Or Refuge des Mottets which is idyllically situated in the Ville des Glaciers with over 50 beds and great food.


Day 4: Les Chapieux / Refuges des Mottets to Col Chécrouit

If you have stayed in Les Chapieux you can either walk the 5km up the road or catch the local shuttle to Refuge des Mottets. The Col de la Seigne (2516m) and lies a steep 750m above the Refuge des Mottets and is where you leave France for Italy. Just wait until you see the view! Stupendous! The trail descends through high alpine meadows past refuge Elisabetta into the Val Veni. But the best views of the day lie ahead.


As you reach the snout of the huge Glacier du Miage you climb again onto the southern slopes of the Val Veni. The steep southern side of the Mont Blanc Massif, made up of jagged peaks, hanging glaciers and plunging waterfalls seems close enough to touch. Marmots and marigolds are common on this section and the scenery will have you reaching for your camera every few yards. The trail from Col de la Seigne to Col Chécrouit really must be one of the world’s finest walks.


Walk from Les Chapieux: (possible to reduce by 4km using shuttle bus) 27km, 1500m Ascent, 900m Descent, 9-10 Hours


Walk from Refuge des Mottets: 23km, 1300m Ascent, 900m Descent, 8 – 9 Hours


Alternative: This is a really long day if you prefer we can arrange for you to stay in Courmayeur tonight, skipping the section of the route over Col Chécroui by catching the bus from Col Chécroui. This takes at least two hours off the walk today and an hour or more off tomorrow’s walk.


Dinner & Overnight: Gîte Maison Vieille offers simple dormitory accommodation but has a great atmosphere and traditional mountain food is a forte of this gîte which enjoys a fabulous position. 


Day 5: Maison Vielle - Refugio Bonatti

Your day begins with a steep descent to the Italian village of Courmayeur by a pretty forrest path of cable car. In good weather the walk to Refugio Bonatti is guaranteed to be one of the most memorable of your Tour du Mont Blanc. Once in Courmayeur you make your way up to the Refuge Bertone before taking the main route contours around the flank of de la Saxe on an undulating path giving you plenty of time to take in the dramatic icy panorama of the Mont Blanc Massif and Grand Jorasses across the valley.


Walk: 18.5km, 990m Ascent, 860m descent, 8 hours. 


Dinner & Overnight: Refugio Bonatti

Widely regarded as one of the best refuges in the Alps the priavetly owned Refugio Bonatti is a treat in every way.


Day 6: Refugio Bonatti - Grand col Ferret - La Fouly

The day begins with a glorious contouring walk from Refugio Bonatti before descending into Val Ferret, where the climb of Grand col Ferret begins. The top of the col brings up Switzerland. Descending through picture book scenes of chalets, grazing cattle and fabulous alpine views you soon reach La Fouly, an idyllic alpine village of wooden chalets overflowing with flowers.


Walk: 20.5 km, 825m Ascent, 1190m Descent, 7 Hours


Dinner & Overnight: Hotel Edelweiss, La Fouly (Dorm)


Hotel Edelweiss is a comfortable mountain chalet style hotel which also has dormitory accommodation. You can upgrade to double/twin rooms for a small additional supplement if you would prefer a little more comfort half way through your trip.


Day 7: La Fouly - Champex

Walking through the Val Ferret with its patchwork of peaceful forests and green pastures is balm for the body and soul as this is the easiest stage of the TMB. On the way to Champex you will be walking on some of the quietest trails in the Mont Blanc Massif. The village of Les Arlaches, made up of traditional wooden Swiss Chalets, seems to have leapt from a postcard and is a highlight of the day. Your overnight stop is the lakeside town of Champex.


Walk: 5 Hours, Ascent: 400m, Descent: 450m


Dinner & Overnight: Gite Bon Abri, Champex


Located in woodland just outside Champex the pleasant family run Bon Abri has a welcoming atmosphere and great home cooked food.


Day 8: Champex - Trient

The official route goes via Alp Bovine, a splendid walk through pine and larch forests interspersed with alpine meadows and wonderful views down the Rhône Valley.


Alternatively the demanding variant goes via the spectacular Fenêtre d’Arpette to the Trient Valley. Climbing to 2665m it’s a challenging and exposed route but worth every step. Whichever route you choose you will end the day by descending right to the valley floor to the small village of Trient.


Walk via Alp Bovine: 17.5km, 700m Ascent: 840 m Descent, 5.5 Hours. Walk via Fenêtre d’Arpette: 15.5km, 1184m Ascent, 1330m descent, 7 Hours


Dinner & Overnight: Auberge Relais du Mont Blanc  or La Hotel Grande Ourse- Trient


Nestled deep in the valley Trient is always bursting with walkers on the Tour du Mont Blanc and Walkers Haut Route and both of these hostelries cater admirably for them.


Day 9: Trient -Tré le Champ

From Trient, you climb to reach the French border at Col de Balme (2191 m). From the col the entire Mont Blanc Massif stretches ahead; the Chamonix Valley, the summit of Mont Blanc, the Aiguilles, the Mer de Glace and the Argentière glaciers!


The route then continues via the Col des Posettes and Aiguillette des Posettes, with wonderful views throughout, before descending into the Chamonix Valley at Tré le Champ.


Walk: 13.2km, 1090m Ascent, 970m Descent, 6 Hours


Dinner & Overnight: Refuge Boerne, Tré le Champ or Le Tour


Day 10: Tré le Champ - Lac Blanc

The next two days are in my opinion the highlight of the Tour du Mont Blanc. The views across the Chamonix Valley to the Mont Blanc Massif are outstanding throughout. From Tré le Champ the trail climbs via Aiguillette de Argentière to the Grand Balcon Sud of the Aiguilles Rouges, taking in a few fixed ladders on the way. You are now in the Aiguilles Rouge Nature Reserve and sightings of Ibex, Marmot and many other furry creatures are common. The refuge at the beautiful Lac Blanc is surrounded by high peaks and gives a grand view of Mont Blanc across the valley.


Walk: 7km, 4 Hours, Ascent: 1020m, Descent: 40m


Alternative: For those who don’t like heights there is a variation which avoids the ladders and takes the same time.


Dinner & Overnight: Refuge Lac Blanc boasts the finest location and views of any refuge on the TMB. Modern facilities combined with great food and atmosphere make for a memorable final night in the mountains.


Day 11: Lac Blanc - Les Houches

Your last day on the Tour du Mont Blanc takes you all the way to Les Houches via the Col du Brevant & the rocky pedestal of the le Brévent (2525m). Mont Blanc seems within touching distance on the opposite side of the valley. Descent past Lac Brevent and traverse onwards to Bel Lachat before making the descent to Les Houches and a short bus or ride will take you back to Chamonix.


This day can be shortened at several points. Chamonix is the centre of mountaineering in the French Alps and always a hive of activity and is the perfect place to celebrate the end of your walk around Mont Blanc.


Walk: 18km, 670m Ascent, 2055m Descent, 9 Hours


Alternative: It is possible to reduce the walk considerably to 1, 3 or 5 hours by taking one of three cable cars down into the Chamonix Valley.


Overnight: Hotel l’Arve***, Chamonix


Enjoying a quiet location with great views, despite being so close to the centre of Chamonix, the hotel l'Arve has 37 comfortable rooms and a friendly welcoming atmosphere.


Day 12: Onward Travel

Chamonix is a great base to spend a couple of days and we would recommend that you add extra nights here. You can enjoy some fabulous walking in the Aiguilles Rouge Park, take the cable car to the Aiguille du Midi at 3795m or perhaps the train to the Montenvers on the Mer de Glace.


If you are heading home there are numerous shuttles, buses and trains back to Geneva and throughout France.

Accommodation

Our Complete Tour du Mont Blanc huts package includes 3 nights' accommodation is small hotels in twin/double rooms and 9 nights in mountain huts, refuges and gîtes in mixed sex dormitories.

11 breakfasts and 10 evening meals (Chamonix not included) are included. Evening meals are social occasions and definitely one of the highlights of the day.

Allow about €10 per day for lunch. Drinks are not included but available at all overnight accommodation.

If you book luggage transfer your main luggage will be transferred between your accommodations each night (except night 5, Refuge Bonatti and night 10 if staying at Lac Blanc due to the inaccessibility of the refuges which have no road access. You will need to carry your overnight things and your main bag will meet you at the next overnight.


We can arrange for extra bags to be stored in Chamonix for the duration of your walk for a small charge.


Navigation

The Tour du Mont Blanc is comprehensively waymarked at all junctions and by regular paint marks along the trail. We supply you with detailed 1:25 000 IGN maps and a comprehensive guidebook so you should have absolutely no problem following the route. That said, the walk does cross high mountain passes and the weather can change quickly. You should be able to navigate with a map and compass in poor visibility and be experienced in the mountains.

Time of Year

The season for the Tour du Mont Blanc runs from mid June to mid September. The trail is sometimes closed until the last week of June due to snow, in which case your tour would need to be rescheduled or cancelled. Please note that public transport in the area in the shoulder months of June and September is limited. This means that certain 'short cut' options will not be at your disposal during these months. Those hiking in these months should be prepared to walk the full distances each day. In the itinerary description you will find the daily distances both with and without any possible short cuts.


Single Rooms & Solo Walkers

This tour is not available to solo walkers and single rooms are not available except on the first and last nights. A supplement is payable.

Comments about macs adventure Complete Tour du Mont Blanc (Huts):

My wife and I booked this trip as a way to try out long distance hiking and trekking in Europe. We typically backpack in the mountains and figured that this self-guided tour would be a perfect bridge between having someone help to organize the logistics yet stay independent. It worked out very well: Minna was awesome at organizing the hotels within the time window we had, and made sure we got our maps and guidebooks despite a very slow trans-Atlantic mail service. We liked the independence of wandering off the main trail on some of the alternate routes shown on the map and described in the book, especially as a way to escape the morning crowds on the trail and see something different. One suggestion I do have is to describe all of the alternate routes indicated on the map: we took a variant route from Trient to Tres Le Champ via Vallorcine which was marked on the map but was not mentioned in the guidebook. Even with a 1:25000 scale map, it was a little tricky finding the route at times.
Overall, we had a great time on the trail, met some wonderful people from many different countries, enjoyed good food and drink in the evenings, and saw some truly stellar mountain views.

      Comments about macs adventure Complete Tour du Mont Blanc (Huts):

      The best trip we ever took as a family. It was physically and emotionally challenging and brought us together as a family. My 19 and 20 year old children enjoyed stopping at the farms and having a beer along the hike! We all enjoyed the food along the way. And of course the views were EPIC.
      Review your itinerary carefully. Our stated fitness level was 10-12 miles a day. We had two days of 17 miles each and it killed us - we had to take a rest day, hire a car to drive us to next destination because we couldn't walk. We increased fitness quickly and for the 2nd 17 mile day we were fine. The itinerary is flexible, so with a careful review and knowledge of your limitations you should be fine. But don't rely on MAC's to tailor specifically for you.

        Hiking Mont Blanc was an amazing experience. We enjoyed the natural beauty of the area. There were not crowds of people and the trail was pristine. Count on climbing 800 metres each day and then a descent. Every step is worth it. The trails was well marked. The refugios were great for overnight accommodation with family style meals. It was a great opportunity to share stories and adventures. We particularly liked staying at Lac Blanc.

          I did the full tour with my 13 year old son and we particularly enjoyed the nights in Mountain refuges. Walking in the normal anti-clockwise direction allowed us to bump into many of the same people on numerous occasions over the fortnight and my son really enjoyed catching up with fellow travellers and eating at big communal tables in the evenings - a real plus of the trip.

            This trip was an opportunity for my son and I to celebrate his college graduation and my 50th birthday. We have both always loved to backpack, and this trip allowed us to stretch ourselves to our limits in a safe environment. Macs Adventure helped us set everything up and gave us essential information for the trip. We were able to complete the trip independently, but we knew that should we run into problems, they were with us every step of the way. The accommodations they booked for us were excellent and the information they provided on each day's hike extremely helpful. I highly recommend them.

              3 of my friends and I booked the Tour du Mont Blanc in Huts with Macs Adventures, and we had a great experience! Macs Adventures helped book our whole trip, which took much of the stress out of trip planning! Nicola was always very quick at answering our questions when we emailed her. We had all the information sent to us that we needed for an enjoyable and smooth trip, and everything went really well. I would definitely use Macs Adventures again, and I highly recommend them! Very pleased with our experience! :)

                My wife and I did the 10 day Tour du Mont Blanc along with 2 friends. We had an awesome time. Every accommodation was in order. It's enough effort to hike 100 miles in ten days, at least we didn't have to worry about where we stayed each night. Our trip was late June-early July, we had clear weather 8 out of 10 days. Part of the fun is seeing where you stay each night. From hotels to hostels to refuges, each had its own charm.

                Macs Adventure delivered everything they promised, and were very responsive to all questions. I would highly recommend them.

                  Comments about macs adventure Complete Tour du Mont Blanc (Huts):

                  We knew doing Mont Blanc would be challenging - it required more continuous days of hiking with significant elevation changes than we've ever done before. Putting our needs into someone else's hands is never easy when for decades you've figured it out yourselves BUT using Macs was a very smart choice. We have no regrets what so ever.
