This trek is CONFIRMED. There are only limited accommodation spots available in the mountain huts/hostels and they tend to get fully booked pretty fast. The earlier you confirm your participation, the more chance you have that we still have a spot for you.

Before the former USSR split up in separate countries (some of them are in Europe now), the iconic Mount Blanc was the highest mountain in Europe. Hence this epic trek around the Mont Blanc massif is a bucket list item for many hikers. For more than ten days we will circle around the mountain starting off in France, passing through Italy on the way to Switzerland and back to France. No doubt that, if you love mountains, this is one of the most amazing treks on the planet.

Day in day out we will be treated with unforgettable vistas and panoramas, while working our way from one mountain hut/hostel to the next. An epic journey of 170km with 10,000m elevation gain.

We will hike the entire circuit (and some of the detours), so we will not have land transfers or cable car rides from one place to another as this is the case for many other organised treks.

Due the remoteness of some of the mountain huts/hostels, luggage transfer is impossible and since you will not find any porter service, you have to keep your luggage to the minimum (or suffer carrying a heavy load).

We will spend the night in mixed dorms and will have our meals in the accommodation places, so there is no need to carry tent, sleeping bag, food, cooking stuff, etc.

There should be no AMS concern as we hardly surpass the 2500m asl mark and temperatures should remain in the 13-26 degrees Celsius range.
