Mon Roadbook app: designed for the self-guided trips, "Mon Roadbook" travel assistant guides you throughout your journey via a mobile application to download on your smartphone.
Prices indicated are calculated based on a limited number of seats available or for a departure in over 2 months from today. Once all prereserved seats are filled, or for reservations with a departure in less than 2 months, we might have to acquire seats for a higher price (depending on availability at the moment the reservation is made), which might result in the application of a supplement that increases the closer we are to the departure date.

Our trip

  • A classic multi-day mountain hike

  • France, Italy, and Switzerland: explore three alpine cultures.

  • Hike to Lac Blanc included.

"Mon Roadbook" app is available for this trip.
More info >>
Circling the Mt. Blanc Range means hiking as close as possible to this legendary alpine giant without actually climbing it. Every day, enjoy so many new discoveries as you explore the different sides, cultures, and landscapes of the range: first through France, and then Italy and Switzerland. The well-marked trails are trade and communications routes that have been used, in some cases, since Antiquity. This is hands down one of the world's major and most classic multi-day mountain hikes!

We are in the beginning stages of planning a trip. Can you explain the difference between the huts and the comfort trip?

    Hello Amy,
    Thank you for your interest in our company !
    In huts all accomodations are on dormitory whereas in confort accomodations are in rooms (the most of the time twin or double room and might be "shared rooms" up to four people depending on availability).
    I would be very happy to help you to organise your trip ! If you have any questions please contact me directly on [email protected] !

We are a group of 6 and we would like to hike the TMB in September 2022. Four of us would like to do the entire trip and two a portion. We also plan on asking others to join us once we have set our dates.
