What really sets you guys apart—and we have been on a few other guided hiking tours—was that we had a feeling that we were a part of Alpenwild rather than just a hike. Both of our guides conveyed the organizational commitment that Alpenwild has towards its guests. - T. H. - California

The Most Popular Trek in Europe—Perfected

The Tour du Mont Blanc 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, 4, and 5-star hotels with private ensuite bathrooms. Most have a pool and spa facilities that you'll be able to enjoy. Additionally, our trip is fully supported by daily luggage transfers. 

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. Even 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.
