Mont Blanc tour by glaciers

An ice
walk all around the Mont Blanc.
If you’re a fan of the mountains, walking or trekking, this version of the Mont Blanc Tour is made for you.
We would like to introduce you to the pleasures of ice-walking all around the Mont Blanc. Each day is a new step, with the aim of reaching a summit in order to pass into the neighbouring valley. You will progress from refuge to refuge in the midst of a mineral world, over slightly sloping glaciers, requiring crampons for walking. Your guide will teach you the cramponing moves and techniques in complete simplicity. You will discover the high-mountain environment: the first glimmers of daylight with all of the shades of sunrise, the purity of the sky, the unique atmosphere at the close of day followed by the magnificence of the starry heavens! Every day you will enjoy the pleasure of wonderful panoramic views with the Mont Blanc as a constant leitmotiv, and the satisfaction of tracing “your very own” ice-walk tour of the Mont Blanc.
