One of the most famous hiking tours on the entire planet: here is the Giro del “Bianco”, a 170 km trek around His Majesty Mont Blanc. The landscapes that will alternate along our path will be of vertical beauty: spiers that rise towards the sky like Gothic cathedrals, tightened glaciers that descend to fill the gullies and rough granite walls of a spectacular red. Our footsteps will emit sweet and gentle notes along flowery meadows, alpine pastures, gray stony ground and, “climbing” the high hills, our eyes will be captivated by the succession of different and captivating views.
