After a strange start to the season following the Covid 19 pandemic the trail continues to be quieter than usual which means it is a great time to trek the route.

Completing the missing pieces of the jigsaw of the TMB around this iconic mountain has been on my 'to do list' since my first experience with Mont Blanc Treks in July 2019. Back in 2019 I signed up for the Easterly Tour de Mont Blanc. Guided by Sara and Alex and I was the one British traveller in a friendly group of co trekkers from USA and Australia. A year ago I was blown away by the whole experience of hiking three countries: France, Italy and Switzerland. The beauty of the high mountain cols, flower strewn valleys, crystal blue lakes and charming refuges made a lasting impression upon me. I regretted not having the time to trek the entire TMB route and made a promise to myself that I would be back to finish the missing days.
