Our vacation is finally here!! We have had the Tour du Mont Blanc on our bucket list since 2014. If you've never heard of the Mont Blanc, I'm talking about the highest mountain in the European Alps, not the company that sells pens. Although a tour of the Mont Blanc factory would also be appealing. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Blanc
We will spend the next 9 days hiking around this beautiful mountain range. Starting in Switzerland and traversing through Italy and France before returning to Switzerland.
A total distance of 151 km plus elevation climb of approximately 11000 meters. Whew!
My goal for this trip is to successfully blog every day. I know I will be able to complete the hike but somehow I never get around to posting my blogs about the hikes or pictures for that matter. So you are here to keep me going. I have my strategy and my goal. Please leave me comments or better yet ask me some questions!
Great snow shoe hike to explore the Jura mountains. This place has something for everyone, downhill skiing for all ages, cross-country skiing and winter hiking.
Our first multi-day bike tour on our Tout Terrian touring bikes. We learned a lot of lessons and had a great time along the way.
Beautiful 1 day hike accessible from most of northern Switzerland, Engelberg to Melchsee-Frutt.
A great 4 hour hike that provides some great views into the Black Forrest and sometimes to the Alps!
Here is a plan for what to do in Switzerland if you only have a long weekend, day 3 of 3.
