About Tour du Mont Blanc

Call Back Request

Fields marked with an * are required

The Tour du Mont Blanc is a big trek and requires a good deal of planning in order to complete it comfortably. We have run TMBs for many years and believe we have the best Guides and work with the best hotels on the trail. Many clients are often pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotels.

Our people

The team at Salamander Adventures have been organising adventure travel for over 30 years and have run treks in the Alps since 2007. Our key people have a wealth of experience, working at senior levels for major adventure companies including Exodus, Explore and Trailfinders. The trekking guides have a great deal of knowledge and information and many live locally – mainly in Chamonix, Annecy and Courcheval.

Our qualifications

All the trekking guides at Salamander Adventures are qualified and experienced leaders. They are all members of the British Association of International Mountain Leaders (BAIML) or the French equivalent, Syndicat Nationale des Accompagnateurs en Montagne (SNAM), and of the Union of International Mountain Leader Associations (UIMLA). This is the highest qualification for trekking guides, recognised worldwide and is a legal requirement on the Tour du Mont Blanc. The trekking guides have thorough and extensive mountain training in addition to the history, geography and geology of the Alps.

Our location

We have an office in the UK and in Chamonix. In Chamonix, we have built very strong relationships with local hoteliers, transfer companies and trekking guides. Our location in Chamonix also means we are always there to provide any assistance you may need during your trek in the Alps.

Guided and self-guided holidays

We offer guided and self-guided options. Guided trips are a full package and include the hotels, most meals, luggage transfers, airport transfers, cable cars and the trekking guide. The maximum group size is 14 clients. For the self-guided option, we will book your hotels or lodges, provide Route Notes and arrange luggage transfers between hotels. We offer a budget version using refuges and an upmarket version where most of the hotels have comfortable rooms with attached bathrooms.

Walking pace and safety

If you opt for a guided Tour du Mont Blanc, the trekking Guide will set a reasonable pace, but it will never feel rushed – it is a holiday, after all! Each day has plenty of time built in for photo opportunities and rest stops, either on the trail or at a mountain café. The trekking Guide may encourage the group to spread out and go at their own pace or keep them together if the weather is poor. Your safety and enjoyment of the trek is our priority.

Financial protection

Your money is safe when you book with us. The money you pay is held in a trust account by the Travel Trust Association until your tour is completed. Only then can we access the funds.

We do not operate through middlemen such as travel agents and so the price is clear and no one is receiving commission.
