About the Challenge

The Mont Blanc region boasts one of the world’s most renowned trekking circuits, with some of the most awe-inspiring scenery imaginable - all within a short hop from the UK! We take in three countries in three days of trekking as we circle the highest peak in Western Europe.

Our challenge is physically demanding and will test your stamina and determination, but the rewards are some of the most spectacular views Europe has to offer – an array of towering cliffs, waterfalls spilling from glaciers,forested tracks, open meadows and crystal clear lakes. It’s wonderful trekking, and Mont Blanc is our constant companion throughout.


Tour de Mont Blanc Trek - Action on Hearing Loss

5 DAYS
  • We fly to Geneva and transfer to Chamonix. Night hotel.

    (Lunch not included)

  • We transfer to the head of the Val Ferret and our start point at 1770m. The path quickly rises above the tree line and becomes steeper again as we climb the back wall of the valley to the high point of the day, the Grand Col Ferret (2537m). The Val Ferret is lined by steep vertical cliffs sliced in sections by fingers of crevassed glacier spilling with waterfalls to the valley bottom. From the Col we have wonderful views back down the valley to Courmayeur and onwards to the French border at Col de la Seigne, 25km away. We are now on the Swiss / Italian border and we descend over the other side to the pretty Swiss village of La Fouly(1600m). Night pension.

    Trek approx 7 hours

  • A less taxing day today, as we follow the scenic Swiss part of the Val Ferret to Champex (1450m). Our route takes us alongforested tracks and through open meadows and traditional Swiss villages. Many farmers here still tend the land and their dairy herds using long-established traditional methods. The views are as spectacular as we’d expect from the heart of the Swiss Alps– you’ll be resting your legs with lots of photo stops! Champex is a picture-perfect village nestled around a crystal clear lake. Night pension.

    Trek approx 6-7 hours

  • A challenging yet spectacular day of trekking lies ahead of us, as we leave Champex and walk through meadows and forests. A challenging yet spectacular day of trekking lies ahead of us, as we leave Champex and walk through meadows and forests. After crossing several glacial outflows, we start to climb to high alpine pastures and Alp Bovine, a simple working dairy farm overlooking the Rhône Valley. After a break to enjoy the spectacular views across to the Bernese Alps, a final short climb brings us to the high point at 2040m. Then it’s a wonderful and (mostly) downhill woodland walk to Col de La Forclaz 1526m. Here we meet our awaiting transport and return to Chamonix for a night of celebration. Night hotel.
