Guided Walking Holidays - Mont Blanc Hotel Trek Le Tour du Mont Blanc (the TMB) is considered by many as the greatest walk in the world. As the circuit passes through France, Switzerland and Italy you view Europes highest mountain from all sides. Each day is different, and provides walking along high alpine paths with views over jagged peaks and glaciers. Heres your chance to walk the entire iconic route in comfort, staying in small characterful hotels with your bags transported for you. We start in Argentire just north of Chamonix, and then work our way around the mountain in a clockwise direction to Les Houches. Wherever we walk on our circumnavigation of this magnificent mountain we are never very far away from views of the massif. The way we walk, Mont Blanc is naturally on our right. Its the big white thing; you can’t miss it! The range of which Mont Blanc is the highest point at 4808m contains 11 summits over 4000m so great alpine views can always be enjoyed and photographed. Do take a look at our website for a detailed itinerary. Starting in France, we walk north east and cross our first major col at Col de Balme (2191m) which forms the border with Switzerland. We then continue over the famous Col de Forclaz originally used by smugglers making their way from Switzerland to France. In Switzerland we turn south west to cross the Col de Ferret (2490m) into Italy. The Italian section is perhaps the wildest section and possibly offers the best walking. We cross back to France at Col de la Seigne (2516m). The cols are obvious highlights but there is much more to be enjoyed. On the lower slopes farming methods continue little changed in centuries. On the higher slopes our walks are€companied by the high pitched call of Marmots with the occasional eagle overhead. We will have rest days in Courmayeur and Les Houches to recharge the batteries. If you have longed to take on the TMB in comfort, this is the perfect way.
