Tour du Mont Blanc: Soft Beds and Hard Hikes

The Tour du Mont Blanc (or TMB), a circuit hike around Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest mountain at almost 16 thousand feet, is one of the world’s classic hikes. In this circuit we spend each night in a different location as we hike around the base of this white, glacier covered massif.  (Almost) midway we enjoy an overnight in the lovely Italian town of Courmayeur.We travel on foot from France to Italy to Switzerland and back to France. We also journey back in time, since our base, Chamonix, is the birthplace of mountaineering in the Alps.
