At the centre of Europe you will find the mighty Alps and the trek around its highest mountain, the Mont Blanc circuit, ranks as one of the best walks there is. The trek around the Mont Blanc Massif is unique in that it passes through 3 countries: France, Switzerland and Italy all on the same trip. The TMB as it’s known is a walking adventure of great variety and cultural interest. Imagine yourself trekking through alpine meadows and forests, surrounded by soaring peaks, glaciers, picture postcard villages and wildflowers. At meal times relax on the balcony of a refuge with local cheese and produce and a good wine to wash it down – or a cappuccino – your choice! The Tour Du Mont Blanc is truly civilized mountain hiking with a chance to stay in atmospheric mountain refuges or small hotels each night.
The Mont Blanc circuit is arguably one of the world’s best walks and the scenery is stunning every step of the way. On the Tour Du Mont Blanc we offer both guided departures where you are led by a registered International Mountain Leader and also self-guided options for the more independent minded. We can also cater for private group treks which are a popular option for friends meeting in Europe and wanting to experience these Alpine treks on their own dates.
The outstanding mountain scenery of the Italian Dolomites is another huge drawcard in the Alps. The Dolomites is a huge area of impossibly jagged peaks close to the Austrian border that are composed of a warm granite that glows pinkish red at sunrise and sunset – it is an amazing sight that never fails to impress visitors, many of whom rate this as their favourite alpine area. The Dolomites offer a distinctly Tyrolean culture and architecture that blends easily with warm Italian hospitality and food for a very enjoyable mix. Here in the Dolomites there is interesting history from both World Wars with trenches and the famous Via Ferrata across the high mountains. Our Dolomites trips follow different routes from a central base and our led by our highly experienced mountain leaders.
Our newest addition is our Switzerland Discovery trip which takes in all the iconic Mountains & towns; the Matterhorn, Zermatt, the Eiger and Interlaken. It is a trip of many highlights with a two centre base and hikes out each day with one of our Mountain leaders, utilizing the excellent Swiss Rail and cablecar networks.
