The 54 walks in this guidebook explore the popular region around Mont Blanc. Written by expert local guide, Hilary Sharp, this book showcases the very best routes on both the French and the Italian sides of the Mont Blanc Massif, including 50 great day walks - from 3 to 20 kilometres - and 4 multi-day treks. The area covered takes in a variety of terrain including valley footpaths, airy ridges and via ferratas.

At 4808m, Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in Western Europe and dominates the major holiday destinations of Chamonix and Courmayeur. 

The walks in this guidebook are organised according to the nearest town base, with chapters covering St Gervais les Bains and Les Contamines, Servoz and Plateau D'Assy, Les Houches, Chamonix, Argenti#65533;re and Courmayeur. In addition to the high-level walks there is often a valley walk that can be done whatever the weather, or on rest days, with children, by bike, or as a run. The multi-day treks are Vallorcine to Plaine Joux, the Tour des Aiguilles Rouges, Vallorcine to Servoz and a circuit of the Italian Val Ferret. All routes feature a detailed route description and mapping and are illustrated with spectacular photography.
