Starting and ending in Mont Blanc, the "Tour Du Mont Blanc Camping Trek" is a guided trekking and hiking tour that takes 15 days. You will visit La Fouly, Champex, Les Contamines-Montjoie and 9 other destinations in 4 different countries. "Tour Du Mont Blanc Camping Trek" is a small group which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

Ranked among the best hikes in the world, the Tour du Mont Blanc takes in three diverse countries – France, Switzerland and Italy – and offers the greatest mountain scenery in Europe. Experience has taught us that 15 days is the perfect duration to fully appreciate this memorable circuit around Mont Blanc – 10 days of trekking complemented by three rest days.

Overall the trekking will feel tough with long walking days but the three rest days are incorporated to give you time to rest the legs whilst enjoying three fascinating alpine towns.

Courmayeur is an old worldly Italian gem with windy pedestrian streets lined with chic shops and delightful cafes, bars and restaurants. A short, free, bus ride away is the luxurious QC Therm Spa and wellness centre, a lovely treat. Les Contamines and St Gervais are charming alpine towns with interesting local markets, electric bike hire and gondoliers taking you up to stunning view points. The last free day is in Chamonix, the vibrant heart of the Mont Blanc massif, with a wide choice of activities to try, including paragliding and taking the Aiguille du Midi cable car up to 12,605ft (3,842m) for spectacular, close-up views of Mont Blanc.

Led by an experienced International Mountain Leader, you will climb over six mountain passes, cross beneath colossal glaciers, meander through beautiful alpine meadows, and discover picture-postcard villages. We sleep in comfortable campsites throughout the trek, often with outstanding views that aren’t possible from a hotel room. Tents are modern and spacious – designed for three people but only allocated to two – and an unlimited number of single tents is available. For those seeking a little more comfort, mattresses and sleeping bags are also available to hire.

While getting back to nature is a rewarding, energising experience, we recognise that having a comfortable stay along the way can make a camping trek even more special. Delicious three-course meals are on the menu when in camp, and five restaurant meals are also included during the trek. Your baggage is transported between each location by our dedicated camp support leader and van, and tents are put up by our camp crew before you arrive at each campsite, leaving you free to enjoy the inspiring scenery found only on this classic trek.

Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:“Having climbed Mont Blanc several times, I know just how beautiful this landscape is. And this Exodus trip is the best way to see the massif from all angles. Trekking through three different countries, Italy, France and Switzerland, this action-packed itinerary will see you pass by alpine meadows, glaciers and some of Europe’s most panoramic mountain passes. If you’re an avid hiker – this trip is a must.”
