With all of its grandeur, Tour du Mont Blanc is one of the most exciting and rewarding hikes in the world. Circumnavigating the massif of Mont Blanc, it leads through France, Italy, and Switzerland, passing valleys and mountainsides of each country along its journey around Western Europe’s highest peak.

11 stages and around 170 kilometers is the TMB’s official length, making this the classic self-guided version of the trail. It is for anyone who wants to take the full journey and experience this beautiful hike in its entirety.

The stages described in this 11-day itinerary of Tour du Mont Blanc are not set in stone, as many offer alternatives — some make it more leisurely and others explore additional gems in the area.

Although technically not demanding, hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc self-guided still requires a great deal of preparation and planning. You also must fit enough to be able to hike from 5-7 hours per day in diverse terrain for more than a week.

While we mostly leave the conditioning part to you, we take care of everything else.

Combining our off-trail research and hiking experience, we take your wishes and preferences to best advise you on which specific route to take. We then book all of your accommodations and other services that you need. And a few weeks before setting off, you’ll get the detailed itinerary with the planned GPS route, and you’re ready to go.

The Tour du Mont Blanc self-guided awaits you!
