Mont Blanc tour by glaciers

An ice
walk all around the Mont Blanc.
Mountain lover, in hiking or trekking, this version of the Tour du Mont Blanc is made for you. Our approach is to make you discover glacier hiking around Mont Blanc. Each day is a new stage, with the objective of reaching a summit and then moving on to the next valley. You will go from hut to hut in the middle of a mineral world, on slightly sloping glaciers, suitable for walking with crampons. With your guide you will learn the gestures and techniques of cramponing with ease. You will taste the atmosphere of the high mountains: the first light of the day with all the nuances of the sunrise, the purity of the sky, the unique atmosphere of the sunset followed by the magnificence of the starry sky! Every day you will enjoy the happiness of superb panoramas with the Mont Blanc as a guideline, with the satisfaction of being the actor of your "tour of the Mont Blanc in glacier hiking".

Tiphaine Duperier - High mountain guide
The team
tarentaise tours
Sharing my passion for the mountains throughout the seasons is one of the reasons I became a guide. To be able to discover our Alpine massifs - on skis, by climbing or by mountaineering - means we discover each place differently, but with the same pleasure.
This means each mountain has something new to offer!
