Croatia and Mont Blanc Trek

OUR EXPEDITIONS   >  
MONT BLANC CIRCUIT 2018

Our Trek

Travel through France, Italy, and Switzerland on an epic 7-day hike around the massive Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps at 15,774 feet. The circuit hike traverses the shoulder of the mountain and winds past glaciers and through forests, valleys, and charming hamlets. Trekkers will overnight in mountain huts along the way. This fully supported trek will include all meals on the trail, experienced local guides, and gear transport between huts. Mountaineering experience is not required as the route follows established hiking trails, but good physical conditioning is highly recommended. Elevation gain varies throughout the 7 day hike ranging from 1,000 to 3500 feet, and the highest altitude reached is 6,000 feet.
