The circuit of Mont Blanc is one of the finest walking routes in the Alps. It is, in reality, a series of paths linking the seven valleys that surround the highest mountain in Western Europe, Mont Blanc. It normally takes a fortnight to complete the whole circuit, but for those with less time this one-week tour takes in the most outstanding sections from one accommodation base.
Discover the hidden secrets of the French Riviera, plus some of the familiar sights too, on this guided walking week based at a charming 3-star hotel just a stone's throw from the beach. Picturesque walks, beautiful views and visits to the Riviera's magnificent Caps.
