The Glacier Tour du Mont Blanc is 5 days of walking through the heart of the Mont Blanc massive, over stunning glaciers and mountain passes. It is an adventurous trek through an ever changing scenery and terrain.
The Tour du Mont Blanc is a famous hike around Mont Blanc following mid-mountain trails. Famous for its views onto the glaciers of the Mont Blanc mountain range, it is a truly beautiful walk. Our version is a little more adventurous then the classic version and leads you over the glaciers and high-mountain passes.
It’s a week about contrasts, mountain beauty and mountain culture.
This is for everybody who would like to experience a multiday walking trip on some of the world’s most beautiful glaciers and alpine meadows.
While exploring the high mountains during the days we still use comfortable/luxury alpine style valley accommodation. One night during this week we stay in a high mountain hut.
