"The Tour of Mont Blanc"
by Andrew Harper
Cicerone Press

This classic adventure is a counter-clockwise circumnavigation of the Mont Blanc mountain range. In the 10 days we walk over 160km (100 miles), using mostly old drover's and mule tracks. We pass through dramatic scenery; different in each of the three countries which share the massif: Switzerland, Italy and France.
The satisfaction of completing one of the world's great walks is enhanced by our comfortable accomodation
and the wide range of traditional food that we can sample, during this classic hike roun Mt Blanc.

Hotels are 2*/3* wherever possible and our back-up minibus provides daily support in case of difficulties.

On average we hike for about
5-7 hours each day and
climb 800m (2,600ft)
