There are 11 stages to the Tour du Mont Blanc. The classic Tour du Mont Blanc itinerary follows each stage on each day so would take 11 days to complete.
However, the classic Tour du Mont Blanc itinerary means long days on the trail (7-10 hours each day depending on speed, number of rest stops and fitness). Many folk prefer to split the trail into two parts and tackle them on consecutive years which works well. Other trekkers may wish to trek shorter days and take more than 11 days or simply not to hike the whole trail at all and just pick some of the best bits.
The great thing about the Tour du Mont Blanc is that can pick up the trail at various points and trek for 3-4 days. This is a great option if you only have a limited number of days. A 3, 4 and 5 day Tour du Mont Blanc itinerary can still allow you to marvel at some of most incredible views of Mont Blanc.
