Self Guided Tour of Mont Blanc Hike

As every Self Guided Treks everything is handled by the Trekking Alps Tour Operator, Verticalife.

We will provide you with all the maps, GPS waypoints, a detailed description of every day hike and the bookings for your Self guided Tour of Mont Blanc.

The Trekking Tour of Mont Blanc Self Guided Hike is a must for most of the outdoor enthusiasts. The Tour of Mont Blanc (TMB) itself is the most popular hiking route in Europe. With a reason. The trekking, that can be organized in different ways with different amount of days, is passing by three Nations(Italy, Switzerland and France) and admires the King of the Alps from all the possible perspective. The hike is very famous and you will always have someone hiking with you. For this reason, we do not offer the guided trek but we preferred do suggest a Self Guided Tour of Mont Blanc living this experience by yourself. You need some experience in handling the mountain environment but the paths are pretty easy and you will always have people hiking with you. The trekking of the Tour of Mont Blanc Self Guided can be organized in several ways and there is a very high degree in flexibility. That is why we did not describe here a specific Tour of Mont Blanc but we do ask you to compile the Form and we'll provide you the previews of cost according to your specific needs.

The hike itself is pretty easy: the trek compared with most of the hike we do with Trekking Alps are much milder and the path extremely clear. The Alps paths are usually very steep while here you will do walk for longer distances(10-20Km) but with no big Elevation Gains(600/800+ meters). In any case we'll ask you to describe a little bit your hiking experience so that we can plan stages according to your experience. None of the day hikes in Tour of Mont Blanc present technical difficulty but it is still unprotected mountain environment. Another important variable is the kind of accommodation you need. You can ask us to organize Private Rooms if possible or book for you the Dorm in the shelter. The price is a bit different. The price indicated here are considering the dorms, but just ask us in case you would prefer private accommodation. We'll try to book for you the private accommodation in this Tour of Mont Blanc. As the Tour of Mont Blanc is so popular, it is very important to book in advance. Especially in the very high season(August but also July). So as soon as you decide a date, contact us in advance and we'll organize your Self Guided Tour of Mont Blanc. Two extra activities that will make your self guided Tour of Mont Blanc more special are the Cable Car to the Mont Blanc glaciers (only in Italian side or eventually crossing all the Glaciers and than coming back by bus from Chamonix) and the Natural Hot Spring SPA in Pre Saint Didier, near Courmayeur, at the end of your hike. Just specify your needs in the request and we will send you an ad-hoc preview of costs. With 5 Days Tour of Mont Blanc, we do consider basically a Half tour of Mont Blanc coming back eventually from Chamonix or from Courmayeur by Cable Car.
