The high alpine meadows, glaciers, streams, snow-capped peaks, lakes, Mont Blanc itself, and, of course, the physical and mental challenge make the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) one of the most beautiful treks in the world

trail Running - tour Du Mont Blanc

Is this tour suitable for me?

If you have hiking experience this tour is for you. The route is challenging, but it does not require any technical climbing skills. However, you do need to be fit enough to cover the daily distance and elevation gain described in the itinerary below. 

We've planned the trip so that when you reach the next overnight accommodation, you'll have time to unwind, enjoy a glass of wine, read a book, and savor the breathtaking views. On certain days, you can reduce the distance by using a cable car or public transportation.

Our trips are not just trips; they are journeys of self-discovery where you will feel challenged, alive, and reconnected. If you crave adventure and personal growth, you've found the right experience.

What if I am traveling solo?

At least 40% of our groups consist of solo travelers, and you'll be amazed by how wonderful the runners and hikers who join our tours are. We believe that traveling solo shouldn’t be more expensive, which is why we don’t charge single supplements.

I am a woman and want to come on this trip solo

You don’t need to rely on friends or a partner to travel and have fun. We understand that traveling solo can be intimidating, but it might help to know that we often see a 50/50 gender ratio on our tours. Take the leap, and we guarantee you won’t regret it! You will feel empowered, free, and you'll wonder why you haven’t traveled solo before.

I have never done a multi-day trekking adventure

If you can manage the daily distance and elevation gain, there's no need to worry; the multi day adventure is part of the challenge ahead.

Bags Transfer

To ensure your comfort during your hike, your primary luggage will be transported from hut to hut daily, allowing you to carry only a light backpack with your essentials.

Comfort vs Deluxe 

On our comfort trip, you'll experience a mix of accommodations: a 4-star hotel in Chamonix and Courmayeur for a total of three nights out of seven. The other four nights will be in mountain huts or refuges in shared dorms. This is a common arrangement for the Tour du Mont Blanc and is actually a significant part of the TMB experience.

Our DELUXE version follows the same itinerary, but with twin rooms throughout the entire journey, seven nights out of seven. The DELUXE version is limited due to the complexities of securing private accommodations

Guides

We are proud to say that we have the most amazing, fun, certified, and experienced guides on our team. Your safety and well-being are our top priorities.

Please ensure that your physical condition aligns with the itinerary below. If you have any questions, don't hesitate contact us.
