The Tour of Mont Blanc is western Europe's most popular long walk, encircling its highest mountain. Over 10-11 days, you walk 106 miles through France, Italy, and Switzerland, staying in alpine refuges. The walk is strenuous because of the amount of ascent and descent, but no technical skill is needed. The scenery is superb: majestic glaciers and snow-laden peaks overlook peaceful lakes and alpine meadows.detailed description of the official Tour and variationsplanning information for transport and accommodationinformation on Mont Blanc and its ascentbackground on geology, habitats, and wildlifedrop-down route maplavishly illustrated with over 60 color photographsrucksack-friendly format and waterproof.
