“This trip was amazing in every way. From the arrival to the departure, nothing was left out. Personalized attention and superb guides. Bottom line: Kensington Tours is definitely the best way to travel.”
Anyone looking for an efficient and invigorating trip through Italy, France and Switzerland need look no further than the Tour du Mont Blanc. Here is an exhilarating mountain trek around Europe's tallest peak, one that is sure to amaze and humble hikers who pay witness to valleys, glaciers, meadows and chapels for over a week's worth of incredible sights.
The trail encircles a nearly 16,000 foot peak, which remains throughout the journey a constant and amazing fixture. With the peak as a compass point, travelers rise and fall into seven valleys that offer the best in alpine scenery from caps of snow to blankets of geranium, thus making it one of Europe's most famed Alp walks. National Geographic even named it one of 20 dream hikes from around the globe.
Adding to the already immeasurable charm are the many villages along the trail, giving hikers the convenience of passing on tents and canned beans and instead indulging on comfortable bedding and rich Alpine foods. Though summer is the best time for a trip, the trails don't become impassable until snow falls.
