Mont Blanc, which rises over 15,770 feet (4,808 meters) above sea level, is the snow-capped queen of the Alps. Its flanks, glaciers, and deep valleys straddle three countries—France, Italy, and Switzerland. Hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc is the trip of a lifetime. As you circle the base of Mont Blanc you’ll experience the immense snowfields, hanging glaciers, wildflowered meadows, and dense forests that decorate its walls. More than just a single peak, the Mont Blanc Range, which we compass, contains ten other major summits—each over 4,000 meters high. And with all that elevation you’ll find abundant glaciers, including the Mer de Glace and the Miage Glacier—the longest glaciers in France and Italy, respectively.
The Tour du Mont Blanc is a classic inn-to-inn alpine trek—one which Alpenwild has refined with many creature comforts, exquisite cuisine, and superb accommodations. As you trek the Tour du Mont Blanc, you’ll experience the culture, the rich history of the Alps along with the stories of how this massive mountain has beckoned hikers and mountaineers for over 250 years.
