The Tour du Mont Blanc trek is one of the world’s classic multi-day hikes over 170km, through 3 different countries (France, Italy & Switzerland) around Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Northern Europe.
Whether to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc self guided or with a guide is always the first question. This challenging multi-day trek takes 11 days to hike in full, or 6 for a half circuit so it’s easy to think you’d need a guide. However, it’s much more adventurous & a fraction of the price to trek the Tour du Mont Blanc self guided – as long as you able to properly read a map, have common sense, take cautions early season & check the weather, it’s very easy to hike the TMB self guided.
