The Tour du Mont Blanc hike begins in Chamonix, Europe’s premier adventure destination, and ends in the same place after winding through Italy, France, and Switzerland. Each region itself offers something special; Italian espresso, French baguettes, and Swiss chocolate.
The landscape also has its own unique characteristics throughout the journey. That requires at least eight days of dedicated hiking, where you’ll be climbing uphill for 3,000 feet before descending another 3,000 feet across five different passes between three countries.
