MONT BLANC HIKING & CULTURAL EXPEDITION 

AGES 18+

Mont Blanc Hiking & Cultural Expedition (France, Italy, Switzerland)

August 5 - 18, 2019

 

Enjoy the scenic views of Mont Blanc as you make your way through France, Switzerland and Italy on this epic day hike and cultural tour. Your personal tour guide and driver will shuttle you from stop to stop as you combine days spent hiking along the famous Tour du Mont Blanc circuit with more relaxing days touring local mountain towns.

On one afternoon, those feeling bold will have the option to climb a Via Ferrata route along cables and iron pegs with a certified guide. Another afternoon will leave you time to rent paddle boats and explore a nearby lake. You’ll spend nine nights in private rooms of mountain hotels or villas and three nights sleeping in traditional Alpine dormitory accommodations. Enjoy traditional French, Swiss and Italian meals in quaint rustic restaurants, looking out over prominent mountain-top views.

You will cross paths frequently with those who are hiking the full 100-mile Tour du Mont Blanc loop. Gather over delicious meals and drinks to share stories from your adventures.
