Organized freedom!

This formula allows you to benefit from Trekking Mont Blanc experience to facilitate the organization of your trip while remaining free to choose the type of accommodation and rhythm of your steps.
If you choose to sleep in tents during the free stay, dinners and breakfasts will take refuge in order to care a little self (on vacation!) By saving to meals and dishes. Eat fresh and cooked every day is something other than canned or freeze-dried. You will take even more care of you than what the bag will contain more messes, stove or other bowls, which is not at all bad!

Trekking Mont Blanc organizes alps stays on easy hiking trails without scale or handrail.

We also indicate good plans to buy cheaper picnics in shelters. This trek wild in the Alps by the most famous balconies (including the Aiguilles Rouges in its entirety) TMB (Tour du Mont Blanc) has no bus transfer of the week.

Practical informations for this trek

Departure point access
Route options

Our steps cover normal distances corresponding to most hikers. Starting at 8 am every morning, you should come to 17h (breaks and picnics and naps included). If it is very beautiful and you like to hang around the pastures, no problem but do not arrive after 19h, otherwise you miss dinner (and sometimes even the shower). If it rains, you naturally will press on and not come to 15h.

No endless steps during the trek, no bus transfers in Italy (Val Veni). Too bad if you do not have time to close the loop because, that way, we know you will enjoy your stay and then you can finish the tour where you left off next summer …
