Beautiful alpine walking on the best of the Mont Blanc Circuit

The circuit of Mont Blanc is one of the finest walking / trekking routes in the Alps. It is in reality a series of paths linking the seven valleys that surround the highest mountain in Western Europe, Mont Blanc. To complete the whole circuit normally takes a fortnight, but for those with less time this one-week tour takes in the most outstanding sections with beautiful mountain highlights each day.

Throughout this small group guided holiday (4-14 people) you are based in the delightful Chalet Chamonix with dramatic views of Mont Blanc and use private buses to travel out each day to re-join the next stage of your walk covering beautiful sections of the famous circuit. At the end of each day you'll return home for afternoon tea or for those who wish a dip in the chalet’s bubbling Jacuzzi.
