Transferring your bags

 

We offer a bag transfer service on the Tour du Mont Blanc for those who do not want to carry a larger multi-day backpack enabling you to trek with a day backpack containing just the essential gear for the day. Your bags will be collected each day from your accommodation and taken to your next destination ready for when you arrive.

 

This service is available for all our self guided clients at an additional cost per person and is included in our guided trek cost. Bag transfers are costly to provide due to the distance travelled each day by the driver to get to the more remote locations, therefore we generally require a minimum of 4 people to make the service viable. 

 

Bag transfer is available each night apart from when in Mountain huts or when accommodation is too remote or distant for vehicular access.

 

We ask that bags weigh no more than 15kgs and they are no bigger than a standard suitcase size.

 

For our Walkers Haute Route treks bag transfer is included in the guided option. For self-guided Walkers Haute Route treks due to the distance travelled it is not viable for us to provide this service, however we can provide you with a list of local taxi companies who will provide transfers between locations.

 

We do not offer bag transfer as a stand alone service and for groups not trekking with us.
