Classic Tour du Mont Blanc Trek in Comfort
×

Highlights

  • Taking on 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
  • Comfortable hotel and auberge accommodation in private rooms and included bag transfer
  • Delicious mountain food featuring Savoyard specialities

Our Classic Tour du Mont Blanc in comfort covers the majority on the Tour du Mont Blanc over 8 walking days. Door to door baggage transfer is also included, giving you the freedom of walking unencumbered. It’s the perfect Alpine trek for those who prefer their trekking in comfort.

Your trek starts in Les Houches and finishes in Chamonix and covers all of the Tour du Mont Blanc except a couple of sections in the Italian Val Veni and the section from Ferret to Champex in the Swiss Val Ferret. It includes the start through Les Contamines Nature Reserve and finishes on a high with two days walking in the Aiguilles Rouges, which give the best views of the Mont Blanc Massif.

Connoisseurs will enjoy this version of the Tour du Mont Blanc as you taste, see and smell all her different sides and have the opportunity to choose several interesting variants. The character of the massif and surrounding valleys change dramatically as you walk through France, Italy and Switzerland on your Tour du Mont Blanc and enjoying the delicacies of each country is one of the highlights of the tour.

The Classic Tour du Mont Blanc in comfort is ideal if you want to complete the majority of the Tour de Mont Blanc including the real highlights of the tour staying in comfortable hotels and private rooms in refuges. Accommodation is in comfortable three star hotels for seven nights and in private rooms in auberges/refuges on two nights.

The difference between our classic itinerary and the highlights itinerary is that you finish with the stunning section in the Aiguilles Rouges high above the Chamonix Valley, which boast perhaps the best views of the Tour du Mont Blanc. It does skip the section from around Courmayeur in Italy and the section from La Fouly to Champex in the Swiss Val Ferret so if you want to do the whole circuit you will need to book our Complete Tour du Mont Blanc.

Day 1: Arrive Les Houches

The pretty 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 three star hotel, stroll through the town and get ready for your adventure on the Tour du Mont Blanc.


Dinner & Overnight: 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 - Col de Voza – 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 Chemenaz*** , Les Contamines.


Located in a tranquil area almost directly on the TMB trail and a
pleasant 10 minute walk to the village centre- enjoy this evening's
luxurious 5 course meal!



Day 3: Les Contamines – Col Bonhomme (2329m) – Les Chapieux/Mottets

A gentle start from Les Contamines for the first 4km along the valley floor to chapel at Notre Dame de la Gorge (shuttle transfer possible). Here 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.


Here you can either climb over the Col des Fours (2665m) and descend steeply to Refuge des Mottets or alternatively descend to Les Chapieux.


Walk to Les Chapieux: 18km, 7.5 Hours, 1316m Ascent, 929m Descent


Walk to Refuge des Mottetts via Col des Fours: 20km, 1579m Ascent, 879m Descent, 8 Hours. Optional shuttle: Taking the optional shuttle from Les Contamines to Notre Dame de la Gorge reduces the distance by 5km and time by an hour.


Dinner & Overnight: Either Refuge des Mottets idyllically situated with over 50 beds and a welcome meal at the end of a great day.


Or: Auberge de La Nova, Les Chapieux. The friendly and comfortable Auberge de la Nova serves a great beer and even better grub.


Day 4: Les Chapieux to Courmayeur

From 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 steep southern side of the Mont Blanc Massif, made up of jagged peaks, hanging glaciers and plunging waterfalls, seems close enough to touch. The trail descends through high alpine meadows past refuge Elisabetta into the Val Veni and past the snout of the huge Glacier du Miage to Visaille, where you catch the shuttle bus into Courmayeur.


Walk: 15km, 900m Ascent, 790m Descent, 5 – 5.5 Hours


Overnight: Hotel Crampon***, Courmayeur


Located in the heart of Courmayeur the family run Hotel Crampon has a large garden and comfortable rooms.


Or: Hotel Bouton d'Or***, Cormayeur


Also located in the centre of Cormayeur, Patrizia and family offer
the warmest of welcomes and one of the very best breakfasts on the
trail!


Day 5: Courmayeur – Grand col Ferret – La Fouly - Champex

The day begins with a short local bus to Arnuva 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. From La Fouly you catch the bus to the lakeside village of Champex.


Walk: 15km, 5.5 Hours, 895m Ascent, 1123m Descent


Dinner & Overnight: Hotel du Glacier***, Champex


Since 1895 the Bisselx family have welcomed guests to their comfortable mountain hotel in the true tradition of Swiss hospitality. You can look forward to relaxing on the sunny terraces and dinner featuring regional specialities.


Day 6: Champex to 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, 742m Ascent: 900 m Descent, 5.5 Hours.


Walk via Fenêtre d’Arpette: 15.5km, 1200m Ascent, 1450m descent, 7 Hours


Dinner & Overnight: Auberge Relais du Mont Blanc or La Grand 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. These are both fairly basic
mountain auberges but you will have a private twin room.


Day 7: Trient - Col de La Balme – Tré le Champ – Argentière

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.


From Tré le Champ you can either walk the 1.5km to your hotel in Argentiere or catch the free shuttle bus.


Walk: 11.5km, 1069m Ascent, 950m Descent, 5 Hours


Dinner & Overnight: Hotel Couronne***, Argentière


Located on the main road in the heart of Argentiere the Hotel Couronne has 40 comfortable rooms and a restaurant specialising in Savoyard dishes.


Day 8: Tré le Champ to La Flégère

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.


You continue to climb to Lac Blanc, where the idyllically situated refuge is the perfect spot for lunch. Another hour of descent brings you to the cable car station at Le Flégère, where you catch the cable car down to Chamonix.


Walk: 9km, 5 Hours, Ascent: 900m, Descent: 400m


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 9: La Flégère to Les Houches

Begin your day by catching the cable car back up to La Flégère. For your last day on the Tour du Mont Blanc you have several options. The toughest, but most rewarding takes you all the way to Les Houches via the rocky pedestal of Le Brévent (2525m). Mont Blanc seems within touching distance on the opposite side of the valley.


Then it is just the long descent to Les Houches in the valley and a short bus or train ride to Chamonix. This day can be shortened at several points. You can catch the cable car from Plan Praz (2 hours) or Le Brévent (3.5 – 4 hours). Both of which cut out the long descent from Le Brévent to Les Houches and deliver you right back to Chamonix.


Chamonix is the centre of mountaineering in the French Alps and always a hive of activity. The perfect place to celebrate the end of your walk around Mont Blanc.


Walk: 17km, 772m Ascent, 1546m Descent, 6.5 Hours, (2 or 4 hours if using the cable cars for descent) Overnight: 3* Hotel l’Arve, Chamonix


Day 10: 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

9 Nights accommodation is included in your trip, 7 Nights are in 3 star hotels and 2 nights are in auberges/refuges in a private twin rooms as hotels are not available in these locations.


We carefully select small friendly hotels that offer great value, food and warm welcome. The accommodation we normally use is detailed in the itinerary.


Private Rooms on the Tour du Mont Blanc

As the Tour du Mont Blanc season is short and as the "Comfort" trips have proved to be especially popular this year, please be aware that there is currently no guarantee that private rooms will be available in the smaller accommodations. We will still continue to do all we can to accommodate your preferences.


Solo Walkers & Single Rooms

This trip is not available to solo walkers. Single rooms are available on most and a single supplement is payable. 


Meals

9 breakfasts and 6 evening meals are included (Courmayeur & Chamonix not included). Packed lunches are available from your accommodation (order the night before) or you can stop on the way. Allow about €10 per day for lunch. Drinks are not included but available at all overnight accommodation.


Baggage Transfer

Is available as an optional extra. If you book luggage transfer your main luggage (max 15kgs) will be transferred between your accommodation each night.


Experience & Fitness

As this is a self guided walk you will be responsible for navigation, decision making and safety during your trip. This walk is strenuous, crosses high mountain passes and the weather can change quickly. You should be able to navigate easily with a map and compass in poor visibility and be experienced in the mountains.


The route averages about a 1000m of ascent and descent each day so you should have a good level of walking fitness. If not then you must engage in a rigorous fitness programme prior to the trip. Walking poles are highly recommended as the TMB is tough on the knees.


Travel Insurance

It is a requirement of booking this tour with Macs Adventure that you have suitable travel insurance which covers you for the activity and emergency evacuation and hospital care.

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.


Grade & Terrain

The Tour du Mont Blanc is a tough trek with considerable ascent and descent on each day. We would suggest that you are an experienced walker who is looking for a challenge. If you currently don’t enjoy an active lifestyle we suggest regular walking in hilly terrain supplemented by cardio vascular exercise for at least 6 months prior to your walk. A good gym or personal trainer will be able to draw up a personalised training programme. The terrain is mountainous, rocky and rough underfoot.


Navigation, Route Notes & Maps

The Tour du Mont Blanc is well waymarked with a combination of signs, arrows and the famous red and white stripes which can be found on tress, rocks or posts. We supply a detailed guidebook, notes and 2 good quality IGN maps. We strongly advise that you are comfortable using a map and compass for navigation as the weather and visibility can change very quickly in the mountains.

    Comments about macs adventure Classic Tour du Mont Blanc in Comfort:

    Amazing experience. We never found the terrain too challenging but had been walking in the Scottish hills every couple of weeks in the run up to our trip. The two people we met who were suffering with injury or aches hadn't trained at all. Accomodation on the trip was excellent overall. Highlights of the trip was the amazing scenic views of the Mont Blanc massif and the camaraderie that developed with people that we met along the trail. This was our first real multi day trekking holiday, hopefully first of many.

      Erin our rep at MacAdventures was helpful, friendly and responsive. We liked all the accommodations with the exception of La Grande Ourse, in Trient. Our room was a sterile white cell with a light bulb hanging from the ceiling. The manager could not have been more rude and the food was bad. More complete trip notes would have made the trip go more smoothly. The "directions" need to be more thorough so we talked to people with more complete documents in order to take the correct trails. It would have been hugely helpful to have the GPS maps Mac sent us match our itinerary, which they did not. Overall, wonderful scenery and a great and challenging vacation.

        The Tour de Mont Blanc is an amazing hiking tour along the most beautiful mountain ranges of the Alpes. Some tracks were easy, others tough to do and some had some thrill factor in them (climbing ladders and iron wires, rocks etc).
        The different overnight locations were very well chosen, sometimes in a refuge, an auberge, a small hotel.

        Fantastic adventure. The walking was the best we have ever done and the views were spectacular all the time. We were lucky to have really good weather which made the whole thing wonderful.

        We were really impressed with the hotels that were booked - we mainly went for the comfort option as it allowed us to not have to not be in dorms (I'm a very light sleeper) and the hotels far exceeded expectations - lovely staff, good breakfasts, big comfortable rooms. Ironically, the place we liked most was Refuge Mottets due to the wonderful atmosphere and really being away from it so it may be worth thinking aout this when deciding which option to pick.

        We found the walking hard going but not unmanageable. Day 2 was particuarly long - as we decided to take the Col De Fours option - but it made the rest of the days seem much more relaxed! I'm glad we did the training that we did do before going - it made the whole trip much more enjoyable. We didn't add a rest day in to the trip and I do wish we had have - Courmayer would be a good choice!

        Overall an excellent experience - really pleased with all communication from Macs and a fantastic trip!

          Beautiful trek though physically demanding with average daily distance of 12 miles, and usually gaining 3000+ feet elevation. The second day was particularly demanding with a trek of about 18 miles and elevation of 5000+ feet. Accommodations were pleasant with uniformly good service and good meals. Baggage transfer was reliable. MACs was attentive to our needs and we encountered no confusion or difficulty during the trek.

            A big thank you to Macs for organising our Tour du Mont Blanc adventure for us. We had a fabulous two weeks, amazing walking, perfect accommodation and met some super people along the way. Baggage transfers worked seamlessly and we definitely got better rooms than the independent travellers. The hoteliers spoke highly of Macs too hence we were well looked after. Nothing could have been better.

              As seasoned and relatively adventurous travellers we rarely choose to pay for professionals to organise our holidays. In this instance, how ever, we decided the walking in itself could prove challenging enough for our aging bods without having to carry packs or organise accomodation. We're so glad we decided to go with Macs adventure.
              Right from the outset Sarah's communications were prompt, informative and reassuring. We are picky and never sensed an iota of irritation!!
              The information provided for the walk was spot on - we always felt orientated and sure of our course. The accomodation was excellent (within the confines of the star ratings) and we enjoyed some excellent regional cuisine. Our luggage was always delivered on time and excess baggage was stored for the duration of our trip and delivered to our final hotel.
              We are all incredibly impressed and will recommend Macs to all our fellow travellers

                We had a great time and wish we had spent more time ,i.e had taken the extended tour
                My daughter and I had a blast , met great people , breathtaking scenery and sucked some big air climbing but well worth it,
                And also abit sad when we had completed the tour it was all over ! wish now we had done the longer version
                Thanks to the team at Mac for some wonderful memories and a great adventure

                  Macs Adventures have put together a great Tour du Mont Blanc in comfort, piecing together the best of the trail with great village hotels and a couple refuges thrown in. Organization and information provided by Macs was great. Luggage transfer is brilliant and worked perfectly. We made a few changes to our itinerary while we were on the trip, and Macs provided immediate support in rearranging luggage transfers, etc.
                  The actual hiking was harder than we thought, although still very achievable for most active hikers. We took an extra day in Courmayuer, and really liked the Hotel Bouton d'Or there and the village itself. We also took a day off at Champex, and while the village is very small and quaint, would recommend Courmayuer as a rest day because of better accommodation and more things to do.
                  We had the misfortune to hike in the rainiest July in years, and put our rain gear and drying rooms to good use.
                  Overall, a fantastic hiking trip and great support from Macs
