Best of the Tour du Mont Blanc Overview

Hotel based one week walking holiday around Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps

This classic walking holiday at the heart of the European Alps, circumnavigates the massif of Mont Blanc which straddles the borders of France, Italy and Switzerland and includes some of the most spectacular mountain scenery and trekking imaginable. With its rich mountaineering history and unsurpassed cultural diversity, this corner of the Alps has an irresistible attraction for the world's adventurers, climbers and hikers. Mont Blanc itself, at 4807 metres is the high point of the range and the biggest peak in Western Europe.  This great walking holiday picks out all the best of the stages of the Tour du Mont Blanc and links them by short vehicle transfers. During 6 days of trekking, we will get to see all of the highlights of this famous long-distance walk, including all of the best mountain views. Our route will tackle several major pass crossings, such as the Col de Bonhomme, Col de la Seigne and the highest of all, the Fenetre d'Arpette (2670m). For those with limited time, this one-week highlights version of the Tour du Mont Blanc offers superb trekking as well as a wealth of unforgettable Alpine experiences.     Which Tour Du Mont Blanc is for you? We offer this classic walk in three options: The Classic Tour Du Mont Blanc (TMH) completes the entire circuit over 10 days generally using comfortable hotel accommodation in the valleys. The Ultimate Tour Du Mont Blanc (UTM) is the toughest option which also completes the entire circuit over 10 days but crosses higher passes than the regular route, staying in some high mountain huts and using trails that far fewer people get to visit. If you want to complete the circuit in a week, the Best of the Tour Du Mont Blanc (BTM) is a shortened version of the Classic Tour, using vehicle transfers to link up the best parts of the walk!
