Is This Trip for You?

This trip is rated Activity Level 5 (Challenging). For more on our trip gradings, visit our Activity Level Guidelines page.

Route: Our route is non-technical, although there is a short section with a fixed sloping ladder and metal footsteps to help traverse what would be a steeper section. We take mountain paths throughout, so this trip is not advised for severe vertigo sufferers. The paths are well maintained, but there are sections that are rough underfoot, sometimes with loose rocks, so you need to be confident in your footing and balance.

Some days involve ascents of 3,000ft-4,000ft (900m-1,200m), equivalent to three to four hours walking uphill, followed by similar descents, amounting to eight to nine hours of walking each day (including rest stops and lunch).

All ascents, descents and distances listed have been measured by our local partner using satellite-based mapping software. Please note, GPS measuring devices can give differing results, especially in mountainous terrain and on winding paths. Measurements stated throughout these Trip Notes are given to help you understand the types of terrain and distances you will encounter. Timings stated include lunch and photo stops and vary depending on the group pace.

Fitness: As this is a group trip, you should be able to walk at a consistent, steady pace that matches the group average, allowing the group to finish the day at a reasonable time. You will also enjoy the trek a great deal more if your fitness allows you to walk the route in relative ease. You must carry your own gear with you (there is no vehicle support), but this need not weigh more than 17lb-22lb (8kg-10kg) if you pack carefully.

If you cannot walk during the itinerary and want to opt out of a day, please note this can sometimes be a little tricky dependent on where on the circuit you are. To reach the next point you need to take a public bus (which runs at limited times) or taxi (which can be expensive in more remote locations).

Please note: It is essential you have helicopter evacuation cover for this trip.

Group

We provide a qualified International Mountain Leader to escort the group on each walking day. Our walking leaders are true mountain professionals and skilled group leaders, bringing expert knowledge on mountain safety, plus the local flora and fauna, geology, weather and customs.

Accommodation

Hotels and auberges

Tour du Mont Blanc Week

Throughout our mountain adventure, we stay in a collection of family-run hotels and auberges, all of which have spent years caring and catering for weary hikers. For the uninitiated, an auberge is equivalent to an inn: simple accommodation (often in a rural setting) that provides a warm, welcoming place to stop for travellers and hikers.

Most of the properties in which we stay offer panoramic views over the Alps, while culturally reflecting the local community. Though most are relatively basic, all are clean, well run and set up with the needs of the trekker in mind, while acting as a vital source of income to the local people.

Worth knowing

  • Room sizes are – twin, double, triple or quad. Facilities vary between accommodations and sometimes between rooms within a property.
  • On one night, bathroom facilities may be on the landing rather than inside the room (dependent on availability and group size).
  • Couples always have their own room but we cannot guarantee whether this will be a twin or double.
  • Solo travellers maybe required to share twin, triple or quad rooms.
  • We can’t accept bookings for single rooms due to the small size of the hotels used and the fact we are usually staying only one night in each property.
  • Due to limited availability, occasionally we may need to change a hotel to one further down the valley, and will provide a bus or taxi transfer.

Food & Drink

All breakfasts and dinners are included except dinner in Chamonix on Day 7 of the itinerary.

Typical meals

  • Breakfast: Usually coffee, tea, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, bread and conserves.
  • Lunches: No lunches are provided but can easily be bought locally from either shops or the hotel/refuge.
  • Evening meal: Generally, a first course of soup, salad or charcuterie, a main course of meat with one or two vegetables or rice or pasta, a dessert course. Drinks are not included in the price of evening meals.
  • Vegetarians: We happily cater for vegetarians but please inform us at the time of booking.
  • Vegans: You may find the variety of food offered to be limited, since veganism is relatively uncommon in this region.

Transport

All transport mentioned in the itinerary is included. We use a variety of transport to facilitate our route around the circuit; this includes local buses and taxis. For the transfers to and from Geneva airport we normally use a private coach.

Weather & Seasonality

Expect fair weather from late June to early October, but all mountain ranges create their own weather patterns and the Alps are no exception. It can and does rain and it can be surprisingly cold at times, particularly on the high passes. Expected daytime temperatures are:

  • 15C-25C (59F-77F) in the valleys, although it can sometimes reach 30C (86F) in July/August
  • 5C-15C (41F-59F) on the passes, though it will feel colder if wet and windy
  • 5C-15C (41F-59F) in the valley at night, possibly a little lower early and late in the season

There is always the possibility of lying snow, especially in the early season, and snowfall even in August and September when we may find new snow on the passes. On late season treks (September), the days are shorter and we need to make early starts to make the most of the available daylight hours.

We work hard to create trips that have a positive impact on the people and places we visit and look after the planet we explore. Learn more about our sustainable travel ethos and practice here and find out about the work of the Exodus Travels Foundation here.

Some sustainable travel highlights of this trip include:

People

How this trip helps improve life for local communities.

  • Local guides keep you well informed about local traditions and cultural-social sensitivities.
  • This trip brings income and opportunity to the destination community through the inclusion of locally owned hotels, restaurants, and other enterprises, and by championing locally produced food wherever possible.
  • We stop almost daily in locally run refuges where you can usually have a coffee and a big slice of cake. These are all locally owned establishments and our business is an excellent source of income for them.
  • There is a delightful Saturday market in Chamonix with plenty of local shops and cafes en route, which we encourage our travellers to patronise to support the local economy.
  • Read more about our other initiatives here.

Places

How this trip helps protect and conserve local landscapes and nature.

  • By travelling in a small group, we ‘tread lightly’ to minimise our impact on local resources and the environment.
  • We work with our partners on the ground to proactively reduce waste; this includes eliminating all single-use plastic water bottles by providing refills for reusable bottles.
  • Recycling and waste management are well established in the areas we operate.
  • We only walk on official paths that have for the most part been constructed to be resistant to erosion.
  • We rewild 1,075sqft (100sqm) per passenger to compensate for all trip and flight emissions.
  • Read about our commitment to nature protection and restoration here, including our rewilding commitment for every customer who travels with us.

Planet

How we seek to keep the carbon footprint of this trip low.

  • Accommodation and restaurants in the itinerary use locally sourced food which has not been transported long distances.
  • We have a single arrival and departure fight for all trips and a single transfer from the airport for all trips. There are usually four to six trips arriving each week so combining these into a single transfer as opposed to multiple transfers helps reduce the carbon footprint.
  • Where practical we take public transport. The Chamonix valley has a train and bus service that we use and this is included in the price of the trip.
  • Walking trips like this have very little detrimental impact on the environment and the locals, as it is a quiet, low-impact activity requiring comparatively few resources to support.
  • Read about our climate action here, including our carbon reduction and compensation commitments.

Tips for sustainable travel on this trip

  • Leave no trace: We do all we can to ensure we leave no rubbish in the wild and beautiful places we visit; we ask that you do the same. If there are no recycling facilities in-country, consider bringing recyclable materials home with you.
  • Plastic waste reduction: Please bring a reusable water bottle on this trip, also consider avoiding single-use hotel toiletries, which generate a large amount of plastic waste.

Important Information

Water safety

This trip includes time by a lake, river or sea, where there may be opportunities to swim. You should always seek local advice before deciding whether to swim.
