What you'll do

Discover the breathtaking beauty of the Tour du Mont Blanc circuit as you immerse yourself in the splendor of the Alps. Starting from Chamonix, our 4-day guided hike will get you through Val Ferret, Switzerland's La Fouly, Lac to Trient and Col De Balme for an immersive experience around the Italian, French and Swiss Alps.


Itinerary

Kick off your Tour du Mont Blanc trek from Courmayeur to Rifugio Bonatti. Departing from either Geneva Airport (8 AM) or Vert Lodge in Chamonix (9 AM), you'll be transported to the Italian side of Mont Blanc. Prepare to be enthralled by the awe-inspiring Mont Blanc Massif vistas while ascending the Val Ferret valley. You'll reach the Rifugio W. Bonatti (2025 m) in the afternoon with a 6-kilometer, 550-meter elevation gain hike. Marvel at the tranquil surroundings and get ready for the adventure ahead. Length: 6 km (3,7 m) Altitude difference: 500 m (1640 ft)
We hike across mountainous landscapes from Rifugio Bonatti to La Fouly, for 16 kilometers and 870 meters of elevation gain. Ascend toward the Swiss border and relish stunning views of Mont Blanc's south face. Pause for a well-deserved break before conquering the pinnacle of your hike, the Grand Ferret Pass, standing at 2881 meters. Our journey continues as we descend into Switzerland, passing a local farm offering delightful cheese samples. Our day culminates in the charming village of La Fouly. Length: 16 km (9,9 m) Altitude difference: 870 m (2854 ft)
We begin the day with a gentle descent through enchanting woods from Champex-Lac. The challenging ascent to Bovine follows, renowned for its delectable rosti. In the afternoon, descend through the iconic Col de la Forclaz, a historic route of the Tour De France cycle race. We complete our day's trek with a picturesque descent to the Swiss haven of Trient. We will be hiking for approximately 18,5 kilometres and 810 meters of elevation gain. Length: 18,5 km (11,4 m) Altitude difference: 810 m (2657 ft)
Prepare for an early start on our final day of trekking (11 kilometres, 1000 meters of elevation gain), tracing our steps back into France from Trident. Ascend to the majestic Col De Balme, treating our senses to unparalleled Mont Blanc panoramas. The afternoon offers a pleasant descent through meadows, culminating in Le Tour. A bus ride to Vert Lodge awaits, where we bid farewell to this extraordinary adventure. For those homeward-bound, transfers to Geneva Airport commence at 4:30 pm. Opt for flights post 8:30 pm to accommodate potential mountain or transit delays. Length: 11 km (6,8 m) Altitude difference: 1000 m (3280 ft)
