Not just one of the finest, but one of the oldest treks in the world, Tour du Mont Blanc is steeped in history and dramatic beauty - it's easy to recognise its worldwide charm. With captivating views along well-trodden paths, the entirety of this 170km trail circumnavigates Mont Blanc massif, crossing through France, Italy & Switzerland.

We've chosen to feature the most outstanding sections that capture the grandeur, yet also the beautiful simplicity of Mont Blanc. Our twin centre holiday is based in Chamonix, fondly referred to as the adventure capital of the world, and in Courmayeur, a classic Italian resort full of character.

On your very first walk, you'll experience sweeping 360° views over the French, Swiss and Italian Alps - is there a better way to start your trip! As you traverse the trails of Mont Blanc, you'll come across huge glaciers, snow-capped summits, stunning mirrored lakes, and serene foothills painted with wildflowers.

Your 3* accommodations immerse you in traditional alpine hospitality with superb levels of comfort and service. Both hotels are very close to great transport links for cable cars, cog-trains, and mountain buses.

You have the option to upgrade to 4* accommodations on this trip, please quote W07MP for prices.
