About this tour

The Mont Blanc Circuit is one of the finest walking routes in the Alps. It is a series of paths linking the seven valleys that surround the highest mountain in western Europe, Mont Blanc. It normally takes two weeks to complete, but if you have less time, this one-week tour takes in the most outstanding sections with beautiful mountain highlights each day. Throughout this walking holiday, we are based in a delightful chalet with comfortable living areas (inside and out) and delicious, home-cooked meals. We use a mix of private bus and local trains/buses to travel out each day to rejoin the next stage of our walk. At the end of each day, we return home for afternoon tea and, for those who wish, a dip in the chalet’s bubbling hot tub.Did you know you can travel by train to this trip?
