One Week Tour du Mont Blanc

The classic high mountain trek around the Mont-Blanc massif, starting in Chamonix, passing through France, Italy and Switzerland. Perfect for those short on time, but still keen to see the highlights of the Tour du Mont Blanc with a dedicated IML guide.

The Tour du Mont Blanc is one of Europe’s classic long distance Alpine treks, or grandes randonnées. In this slightly condensed version of the tour, you'll complete a distance of around 90km (55 miles) and climb over 6500m (21325 feet) over the course of 6 incredible days.

The route makes a complete circuit of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe and the highest peak in the Alps, passing through the three neighboring countries of France, Switzerland and Italy.

The start and finish of our Mont Blanc trek is in Chamonix, the European capital of mountaineering and a beautiful destination in its own right.

The Tour du Mont Blanc is not just a journey through and around stunning mountains, meadows and lakes but also a journey to discover different cultures, customs and cuisines. You will learn about the local flora, fauna and geology of three different countries and various diverse landscapes.

We have allowed 8 days for your entire trip, taking care that each of the stages represents a reasonable day’s walk and also ensuring that we have access to a good standard of overnight accommodation. Your luggage will be transported for you each day and will be waiting for you when you arrive at your hotel.
