Presentation summary: We will talk about our hike – planning and logistics, show slides of our trek, talk about food on the hike, our accommodations, and the wonderful people we met on the trail. The Tour de Mont Blanc is probably one of the most popular hikes in Europe. It is also challenging. We will also discuss options for shorter hiking days if needed.
