Few walks offer views as incredible as those experienced on the Tour du Mont Blanc. Fortunately, the route is also suitable for families who want to experience the spectacular trails and alpine spirit that make the Alps such an alluring walking destination for all ages. 
The Alps are the perfect playground for an active family. They are filled with thousands of kilometers of trails that wind their way around charismatic mountains, alpine pastures, thick forests, glaciers and serene mountain lakes. They are home to unique flora and fauna that will amaze even the littlest family members. 
Besides the feeling of accomplishment your children will have after completing the route, they will also learn valuable lessons and develop a healthy appreciation of the great outdoors. If you're interested in ticking an Alps walk off your travel bucket list, compare our family walking holidays.

Mont Blanc Family Walk - France to Italy

Family walking in the Mont Blanc region can be family friendly
Starting in the Chamonix Valley, which offers some of the best views of Mont Blanc, you will follow a trail that circumnavigates the massif through to Courmayeur. Carrying only a day pack, donkeys will transport your luggage and will become an integral part of the group, with children taking turns to walk their favourites. Staying in traditional mountain huts and feasting on French and Italian cuisine, this is one family holiday that the kids will be talking about for years. Experience Mont Blanc on the Mont Blanc Family Walk - France to Italy.
