Highlights of the Tour du Mont Blanc in Huts

  • Hike on Europe’s famous long-distance alpine trek
  • Relish the stunning mountain views at every turn of the trail
  • Experience Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc Massive, from all sides
  • Journey through three countries: France, Italy & Switzerland
  • Take weight off your shoulders with our luggage transfers
Crossing through France, Italy, and Switzerland, the 100-mile Tour du Mont Blanc trail circles Western Europe’s highest mountain: Mont Blanc Massive (15,780 ft). Using our expert knowledge and years of experience, we have created this itinerary to highlight the most spectacular views and best hiking sections of the route. Traveling in the traditional anti-clockwise direction, cover 6 days of the top sections of the trail, using ski lifts and public transport up some of the steepest ascents or to alternative trailheads. You’ll overnight in a mixture of small hotels, private rooms and dormitories in mountain huts. Enjoy the freedom of hiking with just your daypack whilst your main bag is transferred to your next accommodation. This itinerary is a great option for the experienced hiker short on time but with the wish to experience the mesmerizing beauty of this famous trail.
