Experience some of the most magnificent scenery in the Alps as we hike around Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe.
Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and culturally rich hiking tours in the world, our Tour Du Mont Blanc is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Set in the heart of the Alps this majestic mountain is the tallest in Europe and our tour will travel around it through France, Italy, and Switzerland. We will visit a number of cities and villages including Geneva, Chamonix, Courmayeur and Champex just to name a few. Combined with a European guide, our Backwoods Adventures guides will be with you every step of the way.
We will travel by plane, mini bus, chair lifts, and the power of our own two legs. After two weeks of hiking, you will appreciate the enchantment that this European jewel has to offer. From the abundance of wilderness to the rich history and culture of three separate European nations, it’s easy to see why this has become a Backwoods Adventures favorite.
We will spend our evenings at inns and lodges along the route. We will have our breakfast and dinner at local eateries. Lunches will either be in small villages that we pass through or we will picnic with the Alps as our scenery.
At Backwoods Adventures we know that well fed travelers are happy travelers. We aim to please your palate. Since we will be staying at huts or lodges on the entire trip we will have our breakfast and dinner at local restaurants or cafes. Lunches will either be in small towns or villages that we pass through or we will grab some light fare to take with us and enjoy our lunch picnic stile with the Alps to gaze at while we eat.
Our accommodations will vary based on our location. However, all hotels and lodges are among the highest rated in the country both for location and amenities. Most hotels will provide single rooms (double occupancy), however there is the possibility of dormitory arrangements in a couple of locations along the circuit, depending on availability.

"I’m speechless. Having just returned from this very trip all I can say is – can I do it all over again? This trip is absolutely unbelievable at every level. The accommodations, the food, the people, the ruins, the hiking-I find I have to pinch myself while reviewing my pictures in order to believe that I was actually there!"
