Just came back from unforgettable 4 days on Tour du Mon Blanc. Three of us spontaneously decided to try a different type of holiday and never looked back. Loved every minute of it! We did not really train or prepare much and were the slowest of the group. But i guarantee , The tour will be an absolute joy even if you’ll find it very challenging. Our super cool gide Raphi was always friendly, encouraging, helpful and professional. He gave more freedom to more experienced hikers in our group (which they loved) and was very attentive to the less experienced ones. He met us up in Geneva airport with lunches and transfer ready to take us to the location to begin the hike. We’ve briefly stopped in Chamonix with stunning views, then hike commenced from somewhere in Courmayeur. Lovely short hike to Refugio de Bonatti on the 1st was topped up by absolutely astonishing views from the hut. Fitter part of the group went on an extra hike with Raphi, us, weak first-timers, stayed behind to enjoy hot shower, cold beer and amazing views. Dinner was big, lovely and filling, so was the breakfast. Yummy lunch was also laid out for us to take for a day. So we set of for the very impressive second-day hike to Swiss La Fouly. It was tremendous! We ascended to the summit (border between the countries) , seeng so many amazing landscapes and weather changes. After an ice-cream In La Fouly, we were picked up and transferred to our hut in Champex-Lac. Hot showers, heart and soul-warming fondu and veil stew dinner got us ready for next day. Next morning we had to change the itenary a bit (too much snow at the pick for a safe hike) and hiked picturesque swiss villages , accending via great route for a break with great views of Martini province and best apricot nectar at the Alpage de Bovernier. Following mistiriouse Forrest hike, we stopped for a break at the La Foclaz , where You can purchase nice souvenirs (including mini cow’s bells, chocolates, clothes and many more). Raphi then asked if we want to go a long route to the glacier and all as one we’ve said YESSS. Best decision ever! Well worth it! We got to our last hut ( Raphi’s and Anja’s own place) just in time before the rainfall. What an amazing wonderful warm hit they have! Thank you guys for letting us for a tiny bit into your world. Anja, your cooking is the most delicious thing ever , you care so much about every detail! I don’t know how you do it, but you are the master! Chill out and dining yurts ( !) , super cosy dormitory and , of course, the village festival and views - we loved every minute of it. Last day hike (after Anja’s filling breakfast and fresh packed lunch) took us to a summit- border between Switzerland and France. Such an amazing route! Also lovely walk in Argentierre and last group drinks in Chamonix left us super sad on a flight home. Transfer to the airport was quick and well-timed. Thank you million times  (hello from Ukraine, Bulgaria and Latvia ) ! You are true professionals and lovely people! If still in doubt if TMB is worth it!

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?

The longest day is 8-9 hours of trekking 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.

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 the 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 with Dogtag insurance.

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!
