The classic Tour du Mont Blanc, using small inns and guesthouses
For those who like to enjoy the comfort of a bed every night we offer the Mont Blanc circuit as a fully accommodated trek, with all nights spent in a variety of lodgings from family run 2 and 3-star hotels to basic inns or pensions.
While some of our competitors offer shorter versions of this itinerary, experience has taught us that 15 days is the ideal duration in which to truly appreciate this iconic trek. With the perfect balance of 10 days trekking and 3 rest days, our itinerary allows you not only complete the circuit, but also to enjoy some optional activities, further exploration or to simply relax along the way.
The itinerary is essentially the same as on the camping version (trip code TWB), we cross the borders of Switzerland, Italy and France and enjoy unrivalled views of the Alps.
Your qualified International Mountain Leader (IML) guides the way, and your baggage is still transported for you by our support vehicle, but on this version we offer the comfort of a bed in quaint, picturesque accommodations en route.
In some places we use a hotel for just one night, before moving on the next day, occasionally we settle in for a few nights and use local transport to take us to the next point of the circuit.
What makes this trip responsible?
Throughout this trek we visit small mountain refuges for drink and snack stops helping to support the mountain community. While trekking our leaders and support staff work hard to ensure our groups leave minimal impact on the areas they walk, taking all litter and recycling where possible.
Here at Exodus we feel the need to offer our clients an alternative to air travel within Europe and to destinations where taking the train can be a viable alternative to flying.
Working in cooperation with Rail Europe, our sales team will be happy to reserve your seats and tickets can be booked 3 months prior right up until the day of departure, subject to availability. Suggested train times and further information can be found within the Trip Notes.
