The Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) is a multi-day hiking tour that circles the highest point of France and Italy - Mont Blanc. This is, arguably, the most famous and classic multi-day hiking tour in the Alps. This tour leads hikers through breathtaking landscapes, taking advantage of charming mountain huts and hotels along the way, passing through France, Italy, and Switzerland. The entire route is approximately 170 km (106 miles) with a whopping 10,000 meters (32,808 feet) of elevation gain.

Most hikers take 9 to 11 days to complete the full tour. This is a challenging tour and requires a strong fitness level. There is also a section with ladders that is very intimidating for hikers who do not have experience with or are not comfortable with, exposure. It can be bypassed.

The Tour du Mont Blanc is a challenging undertaking. It is beautiful and charming, but with over 800 serviced mountain huts in the Alps, it is not the only hut hiking option. We recommend thoroughly reading the information below to determine if this tour is the best pick for your Alps adventure.
