About this tour

Ranked among the best hikes in the world, the Tour du Mont Blanc takes in three diverse countries – France, Switzerland and Italy – and offers the greatest mountain scenery in Europe. Experience has taught us that 15 days is the perfect duration to fully appreciate this memorable circuit around Mont Blanc – 10 days of trekking complemented by three rest days – with a wide choice of activities to try, including paragliding and taking the Aiguille du Midi cable car up to 12,605ft (3,842m) for spectacular, close-up views of Mont Blanc.Led by an experienced International Mountain Leader, you will climb over six mountain passes, cross beneath colossal glaciers, meander through beautiful alpine meadows, and discover picture-postcard villages. We sleep in comfortable campsites throughout the trek, often with outstanding views that aren’t possible from a hotel room. Tents are modern and spacious – designed for three people but only allocated to two – and an unlimited number of single tents is available. For those seeking a little more comfort, mattresses and sleeping bags are also available to hire.While getting back to nature is a rewarding, energising experience, we recognise that having a comfortable stay along the way can make a camping trek even more special. Delicious three-course meals are on the menu when in camp, and five restaurant meals are also included during the trek. Your baggage is transported between each location by our dedicated camp support leader and van, and tents are put up by our camp crew before you arrive at each campsite, leaving you free to enjoy the inspiring scenery found only on this classic trek.Exodus run this same trek with hotels rather than camping – Tour du Mont Blanc Hotel Trek. If time is limited, we also have an excellent one-week trip based near Chamonix, Mont Blanc Highlights, which ticks off some of the best bits with easier, shorter days, or you might like to consider our Tour du Mont Blanc Week that is a little tougher.Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:“Having climbed Mont Blanc several times, I know just how beautiful this landscape is. And this Exodus trip is the best way to see the massif from all angles. Trekking through three different countries, Italy, France and Switzerland, this action-packed itinerary will see you pass by alpine meadows, glaciers and some of Europe’s most panoramic mountain passes. If you’re an avid hiker – this trip is a must.”Did you know you can travel by train to this trip? Find out more here
