Join our Tour du Mont Blanc Group?

Post by AnnieUpHigh »

I'm organizing a group of experienced (mostly 60-ish) hikers/climbers for a "stroll" around Mont Blanc. Jagged Glove, a UK adventure travel company, is handling lodging/meal logistics. The itinerary is 100+ miles circumnavigating the Mont Blanc massive for two weeks, starting at Chamonix and continuing counter-clockwise through northern Italy, Switzerland, and back to Chamonix. Send me a PM if you'd like more specifics and details. Begins in Geneva Aug 24th, 2022.

Alps + mountain lodging + food-wine-conversation in the evening with friends you've yet to meet. What's not to like?

Can meet other participants via zoom.

Wouldn't that be the same time period as the UTMB?

I believe UTMB is Aug 22 - 28. My group will meet in Geneva 24th, transport to Chamonix 25th, begin trek 26th, so the overlap is only two days. Runners should be well ahead of where we plan to be. Jagged Globe doesn't see this event as a conflict, if that's your question/concern. If you have info otherwise that would be great to know--thanks!
