An extended self guided circumnavigation around the highest mountain in Western Europe. This classic alpine walk, the famous ‘TMB’ or ‘Le Tour du Mont Blanc’, circumnavigates Western Europe’s highest mountain over passes and through the valleys of three contrasting countries. This is one of our most popular Mont Blanc walking holidays. Walkers can savour the food and wine of France, Italy and Switzerland and enjoy some of the finest scenery in the world. Note: Unlike most of our hotel treks, this tour operates on fixed dates in order to accommodate the logistics of baggage movement. We will normally have 2 staff in the area to carry out the baggage transfers.They will also act as a local contact in case of any problems that may arise. There will normally be up to 15 customers doing the walk on any date though you do not have to walk together.
If twin rooms are available, single travellers can be paired to save single supplement charges. NB: there are no single rooms available in Les Chapieux, and if not paired up single travellers will have to stay in a small dormitory at Refuge Les Mottets, which is 7km further up on the route.
