The Most Popular Trek in Europe—Perfected
The Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) is the classic hike, circling Western Europe’s highest peak. It combines inspiring mountain scenery with cultural vibrancy in the alpine regions of France, Switzerland, and Italy, and their distinct yet intertwined cultures. No wonder it's the most popular trek in Europe.
No Shortage of Stunning Alpine Scenery on the TMB
It’s a challenging route, to be sure, but you’ll hike with just a light daypack, and in the company of an expert Alpine hiking guide. On our route we skirt some of the most impressive glaciers in the Alps; we wind our way through deep-cut canyons, and pass characterful alpine villages. Every day offers spectacular scenery and extraordinary mountain landscapes.
Accommodations Others Only Dream of. Fully Supported
What sets this itinerary apart from any other is our choice of superb accommodations. We avoid the overcrowded huts, gites, and auberges and stay in 3- and 4-star hotels with private ensuite bathrooms. Most have a pool and spa facility that you'll be able to enjoy. Additionally, our trip is fully supported by daily luggage transfers, so you will have clean clothes waiting for you at each hotel!
As with every Alpenwild trip, we seek out exceptional cuisine, which in this region means homey Savoyard dishes—potatoes draped in melted mountains of cheese, aromatic sausages, and crusty breads. We’ve searched out and uncovered some of the finest accommodations along the route—including hand-picked hotels and mountain inns, not offered by other operators. Many of the daily details of our route are exclusive to the Alpenwild experience.
Premier Alpine Resorts and Charming Hamlets
Our route includes a 2-night stay within the medieval town of Courmayeur, Italy. In Chamonix we stay at the 4-star Grand Hotel des Alpes in the pedestrian heart of this favorite mountain resort. And in the quaint villages in Alpenwild’s home base of Switzerland you’re sure to have an experience like none other.
