10 Day Tour du Mont Blanc with Pickup

Considered by many to be the birthplace of modern mountaineering, the Tour du Mont Blanc is one of the most popular treks in Europe-- and with good reason! By foot, we traverse through France, Italy, and Switzerland, tasting some of the regional cuisines, histories, and geological features of each.

We will cover about 90 miles of the route on this 10 Day Tour, and one important thing to note is that we may take an entirely different variant of the trail on any given day depending on weather conditions and our groups overall fitness. In general, we are hiking on well-maintained mountain trails, sometimes including easy out-of-trail sections. While this trek includes some of the finest creature comforts and scenery you can imagine, you must ultimately be prepared to train for a physically demanding multi-day hike. Please contact our office if you have any questions about the physical requirements of this trip.
