No other tour operator on the TMB includes better hotels. For 11 nights you’ll stay in 3- or 4-star hotels, most will have a pool and spa services available. A few of our favorites are the Grand Hotel des Alpes in Chamonix, France, and the Chalet Val Ferret in Courmayeur, Italy. Every night you’ll have a private room—no packed musty dormitories or huts on an Alpenwild TMB. We feel that when you sleep better, you hike better!
Best Cuisine on the Tour du Mont Blanc
On the TMB you’re hiking through three of Europe’s finest food regions—the Haute Savoie, the Swiss Valais, and the Val d’Aosta. With our focus on food you’ll enjoy the best of local specialties, cheeses, wine, and chocolate. All meals are included—breakfast, lunch, dinner, and trail snacks. We feature a la carte dining wherever possible at select restaurants.
Best Guides on the Tour du Mont Blanc
Many operators farm out trip leadership to third-party guides they’ve never even met prior to the tour. We use our own guides exclusively. They are intimately familiar with the route, history, and culture. They are certified and legally authorized to guide on the TMB. Most are native English speakers. They include professional World Cup skiers, an Olympic athlete, and skilled photographers. They are the best in the business. They bring the trail to life and provide you with an amazing experience! Want to know more? Meet them on our Alpenwild Trip Leader page. In addition to our top-notch guides, you'll interact with an expert naturalist to provide added depth and enrich your experience in the Alps.
Best Excursions on the Tour du Mont Blanc
Though the hiking is the main attraction, Alpenwild also make sure to enjoy the journey by exploring some of the best excursions along the way! In Chamonix, France, our favorite experience is the Aiguille du Midi and in Courmayeur, Italy, our favorite excursion is the Skyway Monte Bianco. Come with us on the TMB and you may get to experience both, depending on weather.
Fully supported hiking | Daily luggage transfers
You’ll have your luggage waiting for you at the hotel every night, so you can have a light pack and enjoy the hike to its fullest. A shuttle is waiting to pick you up at the end of the hike—saving you from walking miles along a road to get to and from the trailhead.
Avoid the crowds
We’ve crafted a route with timing, lunch breaks, and accommodations that avoid the crowds swarming around the huts and cols. You’ll enjoy the TMB in a more peaceful and pristine setting.
We would love to have you join us in the Alps! Let us show you all of our favorite things about the trek and we're sure you'll come to enjoy it as much as we do. You can read more about the specifics of our TMB here.
