Tour of Mont Blanc

Complete two-way trekking guide by Kev Reynolds

An essential guidebook for anyone walking the Tour of Mont Blanc. The 170km circuit typically takes 11 days to walk around the Mont Blanc massif. The TMB is recognised as one of the world’s classic trek. The book describes both anti-clockwise and clockwise directions, with variants and information about huts, refuges and facilities en route.

The Tour of Mont Blanc is one of the world's classic treks, and the most popular long walk in Europe. Stretching to 170km (105 miles) through France, Italy and Switzerland, the Tour circles around the Mont Blanc Massif with spectacular alpine views at every turn. This guide to the TMB follows the entire circuit, from both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions, mixing route descriptions with information on the culture, history and most importantly the mountains along the way.

The trek is a versatile one, with alternative stages and possibilities for high-level, challenging routes. As it is, the TMB climbs over ten passes, through seven valleys, three countries and two languages. Days on the trek wander through wooded hillsides, over rocky cols, past glacial cascades and sapphire alpine lakes. The highest peaks clad in snow and ice are never out of sight, ensuring this will remain one of the world's greatest treks.

This guide is the perfect companion to the TMB and contains all the information needed to make a successful Tour. Typically taking between 9 and 11 days to complete, it's packed with practical information on accommodation, facilities and transport to and around the region. As well as maps, route profiles and breathtaking photography. 

  • Everything you need to plan and walk your trek, from variants, access and accommodation to clear descriptions of the route.
  • The route described in 11 day-long stages, from both the classic anti-clockwise direction as well as the clockwise route.
  • Details on the Alpine towns and villages along the way: Chamonix, Cormayeur, Les Contamines and Champex.
