Guided Walking Holidays - Mont Blanc Hotel Trek Le Tour du Mont Blanc is the greatest walk in the world, brought to you by Ramblers Walking Holidays. 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 and views over jagged peaks and glaciers. Heres your chance to walk this route based in small characterful hotels, with bags transported in between. We start in Argentire just north of Chamonix, and then work our way around the mountain in a clockwise direction to Les Houches. A detailed itinerary can be found on our website. Where ever 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 generally on the right. Its the big white thing. The massif of which Mont Blanc is the highest point at 4808m contains 11 summits over 4000m so inevitably sometimes some of these mountains obscure the view. Starting in France we walk north east and cross the first major col at Col de Balme (2191m) which forms the border with Switzerland. We then continue over the Col de Forclaz. In Switzerland we turn east and south 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 occasion eagle overhead. We will have rest days in Courmayeur and Les Houches. If you have longed to circle Mont Blanc in comfort this is the perfect way to take on this classic European walking route.
