traveller reviews

  • The Mont Blanc region is one of the most incredible places I have been too. Amazing views and scenery. I particularly enjoyed the walks on day 3, 4 and 5. The family walk was not as challenging as I would have liked it to be. It was really great to be able to do this without worrying about booking accommodation or sorting out my own food. The accommodation was great and the food local and delicious. I really appreciated my vegetarian diet being catered for, however some nights better then others. H. Troupe, Australia
There are few walks in the world which offer the incredible views and high alpine vistas found on the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB). To combine this walk with a family holiday ensures that all members of the family experience the spectacular trails and wonderful alpine spirit of the French and Italian Alps. Guided along mountain trails this relaxed itinerary starting in the Chamonix Valley provides awesome views of Mont Blanc with overnight stays in high mountain huts. Carrying only a day pack, our donkeys transport our bags and supplies, and become an integral part of our group as we lead them along trails fringed with wildflowers. Staying in local refuges and gtes we feast on French and Italian cuisine. This itinerary, suitable for active children from age 7 and up, provides an exhilarating alpine walk with unforgettable vistas around every bend.
