Description

The Mont Blanc tour! A unique, exceptional journey through 3 countries, to discover 3 cultures, 10,000m of elevation gain, 170km, passes over 2500m altitude, and an incredible diversity of landscapes. One of the most beautiful routes in the world!

During 7 days, you will do the clockwise tour of Mont Blanc, starting from the Tour village to finish in the Contamines-Montjoie.

Accompanying for some years, I know very well this tour of Mont Blanc as I do it regularly and I am always amazed at the greatness and beauty of this nature. During this TMB I offer yoga sessions in the evening for a daily well being because I am also a qualified yoga teacher. I am at your disposal for information: ask me the datasheet!
