Tour du Mont Blanc: The Best Moments of 2018

20 Sep , 2018  

The Tour du Mont Blanc is our number one Alpine trek. A circuit around the iconic Mont Blanc, through France, Switzerland and Italy, on foot and on top of the world.

We encourage our adventurous community share their favourite trip moments as part of our #MacsMoment contest, and have been overwhelmed by the fantastic entries in 2018. We have collated some of our favourite Tour du Mont Blanc memories from this year to maybe inspire you to take on your own alpine challenge, and show just how special this once-in-a-lifetime Alpine trek truly is.

Mountains For The Soul

Why do we spend time amongst the mountains? It’s one of the most healing, restorative, powerful natural environments, and offers a great challenge (and even better sense of achievement). Our adventurers sum it up better than us though…

This trip was beyond anything I imagined. 110 miles and 32,000 vertical feet climbed. The best part of each day was reaching the top of the passes and soaking it in and then getting to stay in the most humble and quaint little towns and places that you could imagine. My knees didn’t cooperate and each night was a struggle but I would wake up ready to tackle the new challenge with Deny leading the way. There were ridges we crossed, glaciers we slid on, ladders we climbed, rocks we scaled, sometimes paths were hidden and we went down grades that made me cry. But I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. Personally and emotionally I’ve pushed my limits. The Alps are no joke. It’s been unbelievable! I can’t thank Deny enough for carrying my pack on the ladders and for helping me unplug though out. This is LIVING! #BlessedLife #grateful #ThisIs50 #tourdumontblanc #travelwithmylove #moretocome #courmeyeur #lafouly #champex #chamonix #coldubrevent #RifugioBonatti #ValFerret #macsmoment

You Did It

The feel good factor increases as you reach each summit, conquer each challenging descent, take your boots off at the end of each day, and of course, complete your Alpine circuit knowing that you did it!

For more inspiration, browse some of the best West Highland Way moments from the year, or you can find out more about self guided walking holidays on the Tour du Mont Blanc here (or by contacting our friendly team on [email protected]). Adventure is good for you, and planning a challenge like the Tour du Mont Blanc could be a fantastic goal for the year ahead.

I have been a member of the Macs Adventure team since March 2013, and since joining my travel wish-list has developed ten-fold! Glasgow is my home, and a wonderful city to live in, however I love nothing more than enjoying the access to the Scottish countryside on my doorstep.
