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

Climbers and mountaineers around the world know the Mont-Blanc Range for its legendary peaks and granite walls. The world-renowned Tour du Mont-Blanc through-trail takes hikers on a weeklong journey around the range. In addition to these well know tours, it is also possible to circumnavigate this exceptional range by road bike, riding over several legendary mountain passes in France, Switzerland, and Italy.
Cycle around the Mont-Blanc Range on a 2 to 8 day tour based on your experience, ability, and sights you would like to see along the way. The route we describe here serves as a guide, but we would be more than happy to make changes upon request, adding or subtracting days from the tour. All you need to do is ask
