Accommodation

Due to the nature and remote location of the Tour du Mont Blanc it is not always possible to find luxury 4 star accommodation, in fact it’s impossible! We tailor our itinerary in order to maximise the number of nights that we stay in good quality hotels. Wherever possible, accommodation is in twin or double en-suite rooms.

At the auberge in Chapieux we always request twin or double private rooms. However, occasionally these rooms are not available. If this happens we will be in a small dormitory-style room which is comfortable but basic and will have shared bathrooms.

At the Walter Bonatti Refuge accommodation is in clean dormitory-style rooms with shared bathroom facilities.

Baggage

In order to maximise your enjoyment of the TMB, all you will need to carry each day is a light day pack with food, water and a few spare clothes. All your other overnight baggage will be transported for you by road and will be waiting at the following nights’ accommodation. The one exception to this is the night we spend at the delightful Walter Bonatti Refuge where there is no vehicular access.
