Complete Tour du Mont Blanc in Huts

  • 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
  • Stay in spectacularly located mountain refuges
Hike the complete Tour du Mont Blanc through France, Italy, and Switzerland staying in and combination of hotels and mountain huts. Highlighting tradition, this itinerary is the ultimate TMB option for the serious and experienced hiker. For the nights in the traditional alpine huts you stay high in the mountains alongside your fellow TMB’ers - sharing family-style meals, stories from the day, and dorm rooms. Cover every step of this infamous trail starting and ending in Les Houches (with the last night in Chamonix). The well-versed hiker can relish the challenge of completing the trail through the high European peaks and passes of the Alps all while staying in a mix of hotels and mountain hut dorm rooms, but if you prefer more privacy, check out our Tour du Mont Blanc in Comfort trip!
