Enjoying friends on the Tour du Mont Blanc Alternative


  • GO take in the food and culture in both Italy and Switzerland
  • GO get closer to nature. This tour stays mostly out of civilization, unlike the Tour du Mont Blanc
  • GO to our very favorite hut in the Alps

With charming huts, stunning vistas, and physical challenge, the Tour du Mont Blanc Alternative hut to hut hiking tour has almost everything the Tour du Mont Blanc has, but without the crowds. Located just two valleys to the east of the Tour du Mont Blanc, this tour also circles a large massif and also crosses borders. Hiking in Switzerland and Italy doesn't get better than this.

​This is the peaceful and backcountry alternative to the Tour du Mont Blanc. We can almost guarantee your friends who did the Tour du Mont Blanc will be jealous when they see your pictures.
