Tips | How to take advantage of the TMB Tour du Mont Blanc?

Some of our recent team members who came back from the TMB Tour du Mont Blanc hiking classic Grand Circle were surprised to find that the whole journey was 187KM, isn't the Grand Circle the legendary 168KM? How did they manage to spend the same amount of time and the same entry fee, but see more scenery than others, and earn it back that way?

Rated as one of the world's top 20 Dream Trails, the Mont Blanc trek is about 170 kilometres long with 10,000 metres of elevation gain and loss.

Instead, our crew travelled almost 190KM, which can be considered as blood money!

What is this all about?

It turned out to be because our team members were well prepared in the country before the start of the Tour du Boeuf, exercising regularly in advance, strengthening their bodies, training their physical fitness, and their trekking equipment was also well prepared.

When it was time to actually start the Tour du Bois trek, the French guide took it upon himself to make the trek more difficult for them by leading them on an unplanned route, which was kind of a big surprise!

On the Mont Blanc trek, the weather scenery changes as the altitude rises and falls, and each day on Mont Blanc is unknown, full of different beauty, and different for everyone.

Being physically fit and healthy allows you to enjoy the beauty of the Tour du Mont Blanc and all its moments in nature, and it also reduces the burden on our guides and teammates.

Forging recommendations

In order to enhance your Tour du Mont Blanc trekking experience, it is recommended to start physical training two or three months before your trip: for example, jogging 5-10 kilometres or cycling three times a week, but also short hikes or swims to enhance your fitness and cardiorespiratory fitness, so that you are better able to enjoy the beauty of nature on your outdoor trek.

Each of the guides leading our trek around Mont Blanc is qualified as a French national mountain trekking guide, an EU international guide, and a French national alpine guide.

In the mountains is the territory of experienced guides, each guide also has their own exclusive private routes, as long as you can keep up with the physical strength, the guide "small stove", appropriately increase the difficulty of the hike, to take you to enjoy more unknown scenery!
