The day ends with a nice trek down to the picturesque Swiss village of Trient.

Day 4: Trient to Argentière

Today is your final day of hiking, trekking back into France. It's an early start as you make your way up to Col De Balme, boasting some of the most incredible views of Mont Blanc. The afternoon is then a pleasant hike down the mountain, and through meadows to Argentière. From here you will be transferred back to Chamonix for 5:00 pm, or Geneva airport for 6:30 pm.

Just finished our TMB yesterday and as much as my legs are hurting I really dont want to be back home, i loved every minute of the trip. The accommodation was brilliant food was excellent and the views were out of this world! Our guide sarah couldn’t of been better we all felt in safe hands and knew we could turn to her for any help needed, she was brilliant. The hike itself was perfect not too long or short, strenuous at times but worth every drop of sweat i would recommend this to anyone who likes being outdoors i loved it and thankyou to everyone involved.

Genuinely the most incredible experience. Grant, our guide, was superb. The views are magnificent. The trek is hard at times but the views are worth it and the great group get you through. I will never forget this trip!

What an amazing time I had! Where even to start!! Jack our tour guide was incredible! He was very knowledgeable and helped everyone out a great guy all round. The accommodation was good, it is what you expect from this sort of holiday lots of sharing and the odd snorer! Food was amazing and really great value for money. Can’t wait to go on my next trip with Skyhook. Everything was smooth from start to finish! 

1. What is included?

Included:

  • Qualified mountain guides
  • Airport transfers
  • Accommodation in mountain huts
  • Food
  • Any planned transport 

The course excludes:

  • International flights
  • Tips for guides and porters
  • Any visa fees
  • Personal travel and rescue insurance

2. Do I need immunisations?

We can't advise you on this, but we recommend you check at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx  .

3. Am I fit enough?

This is a long-distance trek for beginners. You could be trekking for up to 8-9 hours with a rucksack, so you need a good level of physical fitness. We recommend training with any sport that you enjoy (e.g. running, swimming, tennis) at least 2x per week, for three months before your trek. Training hikes will also help, ideally for a full day with a 5kg rucksack.

4. How old do I need to be?

The minimum age for this trek is 18.

5. Can I book on my own?

Absolutely! We also put you in touch with the other trekkers in the group before you go, with a Facebook group, if you want.

6. What equipment do I need?

Clothing suitable for hiking in temperatures from +30C to +5C. The full kit list will be sent to you when you apply for the trip.

7. Do you cater for all dietary requirements?

Yes, whether you are vegetarian, vegan or have allergies. Just let us know before you go.

8. Can you pick me up in Chamonix?

Yes, the guide can either pick you up at Chamonix train station or at the airport in Geneva.

9. Do I need to carry all my stuff up the mountain?

Yes - your full bag should be no more than 8kg (we recommend aiming for 5kg).

10. Do I need travel insurance?

Yes. Once you book, you will have access to discount codes for insurance providers.

11. Do you trek the full Tour Du Mont Blanc?

This is part of the full Tour Du Mont Blanc, which otherwise takes 2-3 weeks in total. We believe these are 4 of the best days on the full route!

12. What kind of accommodation do we stay in?

You stay in mountain huts, in remote locations, on each of the nights. The huts are dormitory-style with shared bathrooms. Electricity, warm showers, snacks are available. Most accommodations do not have wifi.

13. What is the terrain like?

The trek involves a fair bit of ascent and descent on a mix of trails. This includes – rocky terrain, forest trails and sometimes gravel tracks.
