Mont Blanc in summer

Hiking in Mont Blanc is the main attraction for anyone who visits outside ski season. There are hundreds of Mont Blanc routes. Novices should try Lac de Presset and Pierra Menta, with a gentle, gradual rise that's not too taxing. For hardened adventurers, the Tour du Mont Blanc will take you several days as you cross the entire mountain.

Keep your eyes peeled while on your Mont Blanc hiking route: You may spot some of the local wildlife, including the iconic Alpine ibex, instantly recognisable for its enormous horns.

Mont Blanc climbing is another popular summer activity. It usually takes three days to climb to the summit, but shorter routes are also possible.

Mont Blanc in winter

Winter in the Alps means one thing: Skiing! Of course, skiing in Mont Blanc is hugely popular. Visit the Chamonix Valley for some fo the best runs in the world. Snowboarders are also welcome.

You can still enjoy a bit of hiking in winter, though it will be a very different experience. Winter Mont Blanc tours are available, where you'll go for a snowshoe trek through the frozen landscape.
