This iconic walking holiday in the Mont Blanc alps offers three diverse experiences in three countries; France, Switzerland and Italy.

The three countries all have their own character; the Italian slopes with their large rock faces, the Swiss slopes with their soft valleys and the French impressive glacial slopes. But all three also have something in common; unforgettable walking and views.

This self-guided walking holiday allows you to enjoy Western Europe's highest mountain and most popular distance trail in comfort; the route has been carefully crafted so that camping and carrying camping gear is not necessary.

Accommodation in the Mont Blanc area

During this 8 day trip you will stay in 2 or 3 star hotels with private rooms with en-suite facilities, apart from one night in Les Chapieux where you will stay in a private room with shared facilities. Accommodation upgrades to 3 or 4 star hotels are available. Please contact the holiday provider for more information.

Walking in the Mont Blanc area

The Tour of the Mont Blanc (TMB) is one of the most popular long-distance trails in Europe. The 'official' route has changed over the course of the years and many alternatives, or 'Variantes', exist to the standard route. The route of this walking holiday was selected so as to allow you to carry as little heavy equipment as possible. There is no need for a bivouac, tent, stove or pan so you can hike in comfort with just a day pack. Altitude ranges between 1164 m (Argentiere) and 2671 m (Window of Arpette). The paths are well marked in general and should not cause any trouble for hikers with a reasonable level of fitness.

Luggage transport from hotel to hotel is available as an option at a surcharge (recommended - except in some stages: refuges or gites inaccessible).
