TOUR DU MONT BLANC - HIKING EXPEDITION 

AGES 18+

Tour du Mont Blanc - Hiking Expedition

Full Tour: August 5th - August 19th, 2019 

Half Tour: August 5th - August 12th, 2019

Two weeks, three countries, hiking hut-to-hut along the famous Tour du Mont Blanc. Hock invites you and family and friends to join him in the Alps at a steady yet comfortable pace through a region of uncompromising beauty and charm.

Hikers will begin their journey just downvalley of Chamonix, France. From there, they proceed along Alpine trails, past towering glaciers and alongside glistening streams, hiking between eight and eleven miles per day with the comfort of carrying only the essentials. Lazy evenings are spent relaxing over a cold drink and a hearty traditional meal from rustic mountain huts while resting for the next day’s journey.

Half Tour Option: Those opting to complete half of the tour will end their trek after the first week of hiking with a relaxing day off in the mountain town of Courmayeur, Italy. 

Modified Itinerary Option (Half Tour Only): We are now offering a modified itinerary. Those who opt in will stay at all the same huts and hotels along the TMB as they complete the Half Tour option. However, instead of hiking the complete trail, these individuals will travel to trailheads by taxi, bus and sometimes cable car, hiking shorter routes to the night’s accommodations. Those who choose to follow the modified itinerary must make their choice known upon registration. There is an additional $500 fee to cover the added costs of transportation, town lunches, and lift tickets.
