Sitting astride the borders of three different countries (France, Switzerland and Italy) the Mont Blanc massif is massive! Mont blanc, at 15,536 ft is the highest mountain in Western Europe. The rich alpine and cultural history of the area, the panoramic peaks, glaciers and alpine meadows, the windswept passes and the friendly small mountain towns all combine to make the circuit around Mont Blanc one of the premier hiking routes in Europe. The circuit is comprised of over 120 miles of trails which originally were trade routes and now link the seven valleys that surround Mont Blanc. Not surprisingly with this topography the hiking is challenging with long ups and long downs. The rewards are well worth the effort - breathtaking views, alpine hospitality and an international hiking community of which we are a part! While we will not be completing the entire circuit the section of the route we travel is widely regarded as the best.
This trip is appropriate for women who have hiking experience, are in excellent physical condition, and have no significant knee problems or fear of heights or exposure.
This trip combines hiking in a spectacular alpine area with immersion in the world of high mountain hiking and mountaineering.
We will spend 5 nights in 3 and 4 star small tourist class hotels that offer double rooms with private baths, 1 night in a hotel in bunk rooms with shared baths, and 1 night in a high mountain hut with common shower, baths, and bunk rooms
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
