The Mont Blanc massif is a European mountain range that lies across France, Italy and Switzerland. It is named Mont Blanc (meaning ‘White Mountain’), and is the highest mountain in Western Europe and the second highest on the entire continent.
It is home to eleven independent summits, all over 13,123 ft (4,000 m) high. On the massif, you’ll encounter several glaciers, including Mer de Glace, the longest glacier in France, and Miage Glacier, the longest glacier in Italy.
Picture yourself walking through one of its seven valleys, which the ancient Romans used as communication routes until the 5th century AD (the evidence of this can still be seen today). Or simply savour the entrancing view of its glaciers and mountains, their rich meadows blooming with colourful flowers. It’s this view, and the opportunity for outdoor recreation and relaxation, that attracts thousands of visitors like you to the Mont Blanc Massif every year, transforming it into a major tourist attraction. The Tour du Mont Blanc has even been seen as legitimate therapy by leading professionals.
