About the Trip

Trek through France, Switzerland and Italy while you circle the sensational Mont Blanc in the European Alps. The adventure will begin in Chamonix, France, the site of the world’s first winter Olympics in 1924. From there, you and up to 14 other girls will begin your trek along this well established route through stunning alpine scenery while circumnavigating Mont Blanc. Your route will cross into Switzerland, Italy, and back to France. Along the way, you’ll experience some of the local culinary specialties as you pass through charming mountain villages. After the trek you’ll have another day to relax and explore Chamonix – the adventure capital of Europe. Your accommodations will be a combination of Hotels, Auberge and Mountain Refuge dormitories. Bags will be transported for you each day so you are free to focus on the glacial vistas. This Destination will be challenging, rewarding, and absolutely unforgettable.
