This is possibly one of the most prolific hiking routes in Europe, tracing the path of the Tour Mont Blanc and the legendary Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB). We will cover all 170 km and approximately 10.000 metres of ascent in six days, while circumnavigating the highest mountain in Europe. Unlike the UTMB, our start and finish will be Courmayeur on the Italian side of Mont Blanc.
