It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves........ Edmund Hillary

July 2014 - Billy , Neil , John and Den Set off to walk The Tour Du Mont Blanc

 

The Tour du Mont Blanc or TMB is one of the most popular long distance walks in Europe. It circles the Mont Blanc Massif covering a distance of roughly 200 km with 10 km of ascent/descent and passes through parts of Switzerland, Italy and France.

Imagine walking through three countries, staying in refuges, experiencing alpine climbs, sun, rain, fog and snow!

A 130 mile wilderness hike set to make the heart soar and the adrenaline rush. And all in less than two weeks! Physically taxing, visually exciting.
