For those with limited time, this one-week highlights version of the Tour du Mont Blanc offers superb trekking as well as a wealth of unforgettable Alpine experiences.
Which Tour Du Mont Blanc is for you?
We offer this classic walk in three options: The Classic Tour Du Mont Blanc (TMH) completes the entire circuit over 10 days generally using comfortable hotel accommodation in the valleys. The Ultimate Tour Du Mont Blanc (UTM) is the toughest option which also completes the entire circuit over 10 days but crosses higher passes than the regular route, staying in some high mountain huts and using trails that far fewer people get to visit. If you want to complete the circuit in a week, the Best of the Tour Du Mont Blanc (BTM) is a shortened version of the Classic Tour, using vehicle transfers to link up the best parts of the walk!
Is this holiday for you?
This is a well established Alpine walking holiday on good trails throughout. During the holiday, we walk the best sections of the classic Tour du Mont Blanc trek, linking these with short transfers. The average distance covered during each day's walk is around 15 kilometres and there is a fair amount of ascent and descent. However, the pace of the walking is quite leisurely and regular hillwalkers will find this Mont Blanc trek to be well within their capabilities. Additionally, vehicle transport for your KE trek bag, means that you need carry no more than a small daypack.
