About this Tour
A great trekking route as a "soft enter” in the magical world of the highest mountain in Europe, named Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc for the french People), who attracts every year thousand of climbers from every part of the world. This spectacular trekking winds around the Mont Blanc massif through the Italian, Swiss and French territories. It grants the gift of unique landscapes of Europe’s highest range to hikers who cross it: vertical granite walls, vast glaciers, towering glacial moraines, pastures, grasslands and coniferous forests.
