Tour du Mont Blanc

It’s never too soon to start planning a hiking trip for the summer. This is one you won’t want to miss. What’s not to love about walking across the beautiful Alps of three European countries in a little over a week? We chose to hike self-guided with small daypacks and unabashedly had our suitcases transported from town to town. We loved this route that ended in Chamonix on Bastille Day – it was perfect. The photos below don’t begin to capture our adventure, but will give you a feel for the trip. Choosing to hike in early July was truly a wonderful choice and you’ll have much of the trail to yourself. Enjoy!

Day 1: Arrive Les Houches, France

Day 2: Walk to Les Contamines

Day 3: Walk to Refuge des Mottets (Vallee des glaciers) or Les Chapieux
