Experience fantastic inn to inn walking on a section of Europe's most famous long-distance trail; the Tour du Mont Blanc. Hike from Les Houches to Courmayeur over three walking days, staying in comfortable accommodation each night. It’s the perfect hike for those who prefer their trekking in comfort, and are looking for a taste of the Alps without committing to a longer trip. The Tour du Mont Blanc is a trek filled with superlatives from beginning to end and the ever changing mountain panoramas will just blow you away. Hike through the Les Contamines Nature Reserve, where you will be sharing paths with TMB hikers from all over the world. Enjoy a refreshing beer on the sunny terrace of a mountain hut in the remote Vallée des Glaciers. Finish on a high note with a fabulous walk into Italy's Aosta Valley and spend your last evening in charming Courmayeur where you can raise a glass of Génépi (liquor made from alpine flowers) to an unforgettable break on the Tour du Mont Blanc.
