The Tour du Mont Blanc tour starts and ends in Les Houches. The Tour du Mont Blanc is a trekking tour that takes 14 days taking you through Les Houches, France and other destinations in France.

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.

“We have wanted to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc for some years and finally did it, booking through Sherpa Expeditions, starting at the end of August 2019. We were extremely fortunate with the weather, beautiful blue skies for most of the walk and stunning scenery and views of the mountains. We would highly recommend this to anyone who loves to
hike and be sure to be in shape before you start out!!”

“Katia was great to send material out early to me, the route notes and maps were excellent though be good to have the GPX tracks as well. The ground support people, Bob and Sian, were so helpful. They were always available to answer questions and handle anything that came up on the trip. We felt very safe and supported knowing that they were available.”

“We found the trip humbling both of the mind and body. The
surrounding were awe inspiring. Having our luggage moved for us made the hiking manageable. Socialing with the members in our groups was also a added reward. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 40th anniversary.”

“This is a fantastic walk but quite strenuous. We used the maps provided and a compass and used the Route Notes to locate our accommodation. You need to be fit to really enjoy it and not feel completely exhausted. That said we absolutely loved it and were fortunate to have excellent weather.”
