The Tour du Mont Blanc, or TMB Trek as it is also called, is the most famous hut-to-hut hiking tour in the Alps, and for good reason. This 10-day self guided Tour du Mont Blanc hike loops around the highest mountain in the Alps, Mont Blanc, which towers over the surrounding landscape at 4,808 meters above sea level. In addition to traveling through some of the most spectacular terrain in the Alps, a full rotation on the Tour du Mont Blanc brings you through France, Switzerland, and Italy. Our Comfort Itinerary uses private rooms along the route, avoiding dormitories entirely. These private rooms do fill up quickly, so it's important to book early.

We love the Tour du Mont Blanc, but it is not for everybody. This is a very demanding hike with a lot of elevation gain over high passes. There is also an exposed section of ladders that is not everybody's cup of tea. Thanks to its popularity, the Tour du Mont Blanc is becoming increasingly crowded and expensive. We do encourage you to take a look at our other Trekking Tours before deciding for the TMB.

Although this tour is feasible from mid-June to mid-September, it is likely to encounter problematic snowfields in late-June, and snowstorms in early September.
