The spectacular Alps are a mecca for hikers and the famous “Tour du Mont Blanc” might be the centerpiece of a European hiking tour in Switzerland, France and Italy. This wonderful European hiking trip takes us through an ever-changing panorama of dramatic mountain peaks, glaciers, meadows, and alpine beauty! The circuit of Western Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc (15,771′) is one of the world’s premiere treks which transports you by foot through through the mountains of France, Italy, and Switzerland, each with its own distinctive culture and flair!

Experienced, colorful mountain guides bring a wonderful dimension of history, geology, and local color to every aspect of the trip. After a vigorous day of hiking, you’ll welcome the creature comforts of quaint European mountain inns and comfortable hotels – all featuring excellent meals and great local wines!
