Starting and ending in Chamonix, the "Tour Du Mont Blanc Hotel Trek" is a guided trekking tour that takes 15 days. You will be touring through Courmayeur, Col De La Forclaz, Les Houches and 7 other destinations in Switzerland, Italy and France. "Tour Du Mont Blanc Hotel Trek" is a small group which will include accommodation, transport and others. Please check the package includes section for more details.

For those who like to enjoy the comfort of a bed every night we offer the Mont Blanc circuit as a fully accommodated walking holiday, with all nights spent in a variety of lodgings from family run 2 and 3-star hotels to basic inns or pensions. Again keeping to the ideal duration to complete the full route, we include 10 walking days and 3 rest days, in which time we cross the borders of Switzerland, Italy and France and enjoy unrivalled views of the Alps and Mont Blanc itself. The itinerary is essentially the same as on the camping version (trip code TWB); with your qualified International Mountain Leader (IML) guiding the way you still complete the famous circuit, and your baggage is transported for you by our support vehicle, but we offer the comfort of a bed in quaint, picturesque accommodations on route so you can enjoy your walking holiday in comfort. In most places we use a hotel for just one night, before moving on the next day, occasionally we settle in for a few nights and use local transport to take us to the next point of the circuit.

This is an absolute ‘must do’ trip!
“This is easily one of the best trips Ive ever done - I had an absolute blast and highly recommend it!The TMB itself is just incredible, words cant describe how beautiful it is. Every day was different and the hiking was just so much fun. Just make sure you have a good level of fitness or you wont enjoy it as much as you should!I really enjoyed the group dynamic and was happy with the accommodation - we had two nights in what Id class as hostel style accommodation (private rooms with shared bathrooms but sink in room which was good!) and the remainder in 2/3* hotels. Rooms were spotlessly clean, beds were comfy and hot showers were plentiful which is exactly what you need after a day on the trail! :)Food was so good throughout - Lunch has never tasted better!”

Tour du Mount Blanc Hotel - terrific two week Alpine trek through three countries
“This trip proved to be a brilliant way to hike five valleys, three countries, and enjoy stunning Alpine scenery en route. Accommodation is generally good, and the food hearty & plentiful but it is all about terrific walking territory in the shadow of the Mt. Blanc massif. Lots of "Wow" moments. Do not underestimate the hiking fitness required with each walking day being 10-12 miles (16-19 km) with ascents of 1,000 m - 1,600 m (3,000' - 5,000') and corresponding descents. However the pace set by our guide Kim was sensible throughout so we had time to chat as we walked, take photos and enjoy the wonderful views. Trekking time was generally 6-8 hours each day albeit actual walking time was consistently around two-thirds of this. The other third being photo stops, coffee/ice cream stops (lots), two lunch stops (eating little and often was good advice), etc. Rest days were well placed in the timetable and meant that we all completed the 110 mile (180 km) circuit in good shape.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • I am wondering about the lodging. Are there private bathrooms for some of the nights?

    For 11 of the nights, private bathrooms are available but the other 3 nights it is likely that there will be a shared bathroom on the landing. We cannot confirm how many people will be using the same bathroom as it depends on how many people book.

  • This tour looks like it goes in the opposite direction of other similar tours. What are the pros/cons of that?

    The operator has created this itinerary after several years of experience. As specialists in adventure and active tours, they have discovered that trekking the route clockwise (like this tour) allows for quieter trails and avoids a tough ascent on the first couple of days. The views and walks are still just as beautiful in this direction. This trip is recommended to people who have more time, as it is longer than the usual trips so you really get to see everything!

     

  • How does the bag transfer work?

    There will be a support vehicle with the group to transfer bags and other equipment so you will not be without your luggage. Please note that we must limit you to one item of luggage per person, weighing a maximum of 15kg per person to be carried in the support vehicle. Excess baggage can be left in the hotel store in Chamonix. You should pack your belongings in a sturdy kitbag or holdall; suitcases should not be used, as they cannot be packed easily in our support vehicle.

  • Are single rooms available?

    Unfortunately, single room requests for this tour are not acceptable because of the small size of the hotels.
