Description

The Mont Blanc tour! A unique, exceptional journey through 3 countries, to discover 3 cultures, 10,000 meters of positive elevation, 170 kilometers, passes over 2500 meters above sea level, and an incredible diversity of landscapes. This is one of the most beautiful routes in the world that I propose here!

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

Mountain leader 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.

This tour is available on demand for groups already constituted. I am at your disposal for information: ask me for the technical sheet!

If you like the combination of hiking and yoga, I propose other stays in Aubrac, Aravis, Vercors and Ardèche.
