General information

The legendary circuit of the Northern Alps, the Tour du Mont-Blanc, offers a unique panorama. During this hike, you can appreciate the beauty of the Mont-Blanc massif and discover the natural and cultural heritage of Valais, Valle d'Aosta, and Pays du Mont Blanc. To make your stay an extraordinary experience, we have added visits to exceptional sites along the classic route: the mythical lakes in the Aiguilles Rouges massif, offering a stunning contrast to the glaciers of Mont Blanc, the picturesque vineyards of Plan-cerisier in the heart of Swiss Valais near Martigny, and Pointe Helbronner at an altitude of more than 3400 meters, accessible via the Skyway cable car.

For this Luxury Tour du Mont Blanc, you will be accompanied by two mountain professionals. One is a hiking guide for a group of up to 10 people, and the other manages logistics and can provide assistance if needed. We have carefully chosen very comfortable accommodations, ensuring a minimum of 3-star hotel standards. As a special addition, we've included an evening at the charming Prés mountain hut in Val Montjoie. Recently renovated, this former alpine chalet offers warm, exceptionally comfortable, and environmentally friendly lodging. It adds the perfect touch to the journey, providing you with an unforgettable evening in the heart of the mountains.
Luggage transport is provided throughout the hike, except for the night spent in the mountain hut. You only need to carry the essentials in your backpack, and accommodations prepare a daily picnic.

This journey is part of a series of itineraries that we have designed to allow you to complete the Tour du Mont Blanc with logistics and comfort tailored to your needs. Explore the highlights with our classic tour or have an experience closer to nature with our authentic circuit. Enhance your journey even further with our comprehensive tour, and finally, maximize your comfort with our luxury tour.
